A week ago Dr. Youssef Al-Saghir and a team of other specialists, assistants, nurses, and technicians performed an aortic valve replacement on me. The operation was an immediate success, and I am progressing towards my normal life and activities. Dr. Al-Saghir's evaluation of my condition, his expert professional direction of his team's roles, and his skilful use of cutting edge tools and techniques are very impressive. He combines a kind personal attitude and takes time to explain what he intends to do, and then thoroughly explains post-operation treatment and instructions to the patient and his/her relatives. Dr. Youssef Al-Saghir is a model for physicians, surgeons and kind persons. Fuad Shaban, PH. D.

He is very informative about the procedures. I had a aortic stenosis, Dr. Al-Saghir ensured me I did not have to have open heart surgery for this. I'm referring my family member to him.
