Dr. Emile Bacha is an incredible pediatric cardiothoracic surgeon. He performed open heart surgery on my three month old son for Tetralogy of Fallot. Dr. Bacha is gifted in both the surgery room and at the bedside which is a unique combination. I know our son is healthy and thriving because of the expertise and care of Dr. Emile Bacha. If our son has to have another surgical intervention in the future, we will put our trust, faith, and confidence in Dr. Emile Bacha.

My wife and I have had a very I unpleasant experience with Dr. Bacha. He is very disrespectful, untrustworthy and will lie right to your face. We met with him a couple of times and he said he was performing a surgery on my newborn baby, when in fact it turned out he was never going to do it. Then he met with us and said he's all booked but will be there for the actual surgery but not the beginning or end of it. Turns out he couldn't even be honest with us and tell us he wasn't going to do it.
