Patient Comments (3)
in Plainfield, Illinois |
I was sent to see Dr. Aziz by my primary care physician, Dr. B. Gandhi. . It appeared to him that my complaints (which I thought were minor) were of a cardiac nature. After several episodes of my complaint, I agreed to see Dr. Aziz. What a life saving event that was. An angiogram was performed and found that my main coronary artery was 99% blocked. Dr. Aziz was unsure how I walked in on my own. I see him routinely now and so thankful for his expertise, healing hands and bedside manner.

Without his expertise, I would have lost my right leg. He was able to return circulation to my right lower extremity. I would definitely refer family and friends to him

Dr Aziz saved my life. He diagnosed my heart problem. I have a very long sad family history of the females in my family dying of mother, sisters and grandmother dying of heart attacks in their 40s and 50s. My old cardiologist said there was nothing to worry about. My daughter is a nurse and told me to see Dr. Aziz. He found a 90 percent blockage in my left anterior descending artery. He put in a stent and here I am, 70 years old, the oldest female living in my family. I absolutely trust him ??
