On Jan 30, 2020 I went to Summerlin Hospital for Cardiac catheterization. My heart doctor contacted Dr. Afifi to perform quadruple bypass surgery on Feb. 5th. When Dr. Afifi came into the recovery room that afternoon, he sat down in a chair beside my wife and explained what they found and what needed to be done to get me up and running again. I was so impressed by how unhurried he was. He patiently answered all our questions, spoke with some more and asked again if we had questions. Which is so nice as we were in shock that I needed more than a stent or two. He was very cooperative with my medical requests and ordered a shot of Erythropoietin to build up red blood cell production in preparation for the surgery. Perfect balance of confidence in his skills and concern for his patient!
