I had cabg 1 graft by this dr in 2006. I am still doing ok, I just had angiogram and where there was a blockage repair, it is blocked and the artery that was blocked is now open. My Dr who did angiogram recently would like to see original cd of that procedure. Hopefully Dr Khwaja will be able to help us.

Dr. Khwaja is so very caring and knowledgeable. He performed my AVR, Maze, and clip, and I was out of ICU in less than 24 hours, and went home on the 4th day after surgery! Feeling good and healing well. I love my cardiac team ?

As far as I am concerned, the world is blessed to have Dr. Khwaja in it's midst. I never went on this site before, otherwise I would have shouted my praises earlier. He performed open heart surgery on me in Nov. of 2017. I'm alive today due to him. Thank you again Dr. Khwaja, and may God bless you.

On April 10,2017 Dr Khwaja performed open heart surgery on me, while I was 29 weeks pregnant! He made me feel confident about the surgery, being I’d never undergone any surgery before. This man saved my life! I carried full term and had my son completely natural, and I couldn’t thank him enough! He was always available whenever I had any concerns.

Dr. Khwaja performed a triple bypass on me 10 November 2006 at the Fresno Heart Hospital. I still to this day feel that if Dr. Khwaja had not been on duty/call the night of my heart attack I would not be here today. Look at his education, look at his research, look at the teaching/mentoring he does. This man is smart! He cares for his patients. I go to see doctor Khwaja every year on 10 November to thank him for being there for me in my time of need. Dr, Khwaja is a blessing to our community.

I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Khwaja after my surgery on Feb. 11 2017, I really might have met him before surgery but I can't recall that because I was so sick. I found Dr. Khwaja to be very professional in his work and I am glad he preformed my Mitro Valve replacement. I Highly recommend Dr. Khwaja if you are in need of Heart surgery. David Cook

I recently had triple bypass surgery by Dr Khwaja, and receceived the best care anyone could have. I felt totally informed about surgery and was very confident he would complete the job. I was released from the hospital in record time (5) days. He visited me everyday while in the hospital, with perfect understanding on my physical condition. I would recommend him for any Heart procedure. Judith Geringer

Dr. Khwaja is a very compassionate, dedicated, and professional surgeon. He's very down to earth and explains things in a way others can easily understand. Dr. Khwaja flew with me to UCSF when my heart was too weak to support itself. He's very dedicated not only to his patients but his staff as well. I've met with Dr. Khwaja a few times during my time with an LVAD and after my heart transplant. I would highly recommend Dr. Khwaja to others who are in need of his expertise.
