Words are hard o find to describe Dr. Thew's professionalism. For years he's monitored my aortic problem and performed several stent operations, which my wife and I know have kept me on this planet. (along with diet and limited exercise for my age). Now, with aortic valve replacement closer,? Dr. Thew renews my confidence by making himself so available to my needs. A remarkable surgeon and human being.

As always my experience during my annual office visit with Dr. Thew was fantastic. The time spent at registration was minimal. Less than 10 minutes in the waiting room even though I arrived 45 minutes early. I'ed like to thank you and your staff for the excellent treatment I received. This is why I have returned to Heart Clinics Northwest for the past 23 years. Again Thank You Donald W. Eide Kennewick Washington

I greatly appreciate Dr. Thew and the Staff at Kootenai Heart Clinics. They are always friendly and respectful. Dr. Thew is professional and direct. He explained my condition well. He listens to my concerns and answers my questions. He prescribes appropriate treatment and is faithful to follow up. I have every confidence in him and that inspires me to take responsibility in pursuing and maintaining the level of wellness still afforded to me.

Dr. Thew has performed multiple procedures on me. He's a straight shooter, tells it like it is, and has excellent follow up with compassionate care. The practice as a whole is well managed. So I rate both Dr. Thew and those in the practice as five star all the way around. I doubt a patient can find better care anywhere-abroad or in distant stateside cities.,

I waited to get in to see Dr. Thew because I was told by those that work in the profession, that he was one of the best doctors. I had my first appointment and I was so pleased. Dr is easy to talk to and I was so comfortable in his presence. I was recently diagnosed with a new onset of afib and was nervous and had questions. He took the time to answer and made me feel that he truly cared about my concerns. I did not feel rushed. His medical assistant was friendly and kind. Thank you!

Both my parents are patients of Dr Thew. He is so caring and precise and he takes his time and and listens. Also, it is so nice that he travels to rural clinics for those that have a hard time coming into Spokane. We recommend him to any that need a Cardiologist.

Dr Thew is very pleasant,knowlegable and easy to talk with. He has direct eye contact and explains everything in a way that one can truly understand. This was my first time meeting with him as my new doctor and he was very pleasurable (he had some pretty big shoes to fill after my original doctor retired) and he did just that. I'm looking forward to having him as my new care provider.

Luckily for me I was referred to Dr. Thew by a friend and since he placed my stents and all subsequent visits with him have been great. He always seems to be aware of what my primary physician has been checking and changes my medications as needed with a explanation that I can understand. He is always pleasant, professional and seems pleased that I am still functioning for so long after the stents were placed. Good job to him and his staff!!

I first saw Dr. Thew as a Cardiac transfer in the hospital. My favorite thing about Dr. Thew is he seems like a real person, of not above or better than me. He answered questions and was very compassionate. I would highly recommend him as a cardiology physician.

I met Dr. Thew for the first time yesterday because my former cardiologist is no longer available. I found him to be friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable about new procedures and devices that could help me if I needed them. He looks you in the eye, listens, and asks questions. He explains things in a clear and concise way that is not condescending. I look forward to a great relationship with this new doctor. He inspires trust and grasps the total picture of my unique case.
