    ahhhh, Dr. Ilbawi. Very few words can be said about the Good Doctor to encompass my awe and adoration. He eminates an aura of ineffible concern and kindness, and exudes well deserved confidence- or perhaps faith. Our son was born with TGA, and at 1 week old had surgery. We ended our 5 minute pre-surgery meeting, (what really was there to ask), telling him to get a good nights sleep. He replied by holding up 2 fingers and saying "I need 2 hours." ei ei ei! Jack is perfect. We love you Dr.

    A brilliant pediatric heart surgeon. Our daughter was born with TOF. She has underwent two open heart surgeries with Dr. Ilbawi. I didn't know people like Dr. Ilbawi existed on this Earth. He truly loves his heart kids. We are blessed to have him. He is the miracle man.

    Dr. Ilbawi truly is a miracle worker. He has performed 2 surgeries on our infant daughter and has given her a chance at life. Before each surgery he sits down with the parents and discusses his plans and answers all questions no matter how silly they may seem. He gives parents hope for the future and prepares his patients to live for 90 years of a fulfilling life. We had full faith and we can't thank Dr. Ilbawi and his wonderful team enough for everything they have done for our little princess.
