What People Say About Dr. John Um, MD
Reply
Dr. John Um performed two surgeries on me, In 2013 he placed an Lvad in my chest and 6 months later (2014) performed heart transplantation. Dr. Um is compassionate, knowledgeable thorough, totally competent and very approachable. At all times he was available to.answer my questions and provided answers that I could understand. If there was a way to give him 50 stars I would do it. He saved my life, I am very healthy.
