“It’s been more than 8 years since Dr. Gordon performed a bypass on me. I think of you and your skills often and thank you for saving my life and giving me the time to enjoy my family and friends. I’m ever so grateful to have been a recipient of those marvelous skills and special hands you possess. Keep saving lives!”

Patient Lemont, IL

“Thank you so much for your efforts in helping my mom. From numerous phone conversations to quick admission to the hospital and gathering a team of dedicated and compassionate physicians, and finally to the heroic effort made in surgery, we are so very grateful. After spending time at the Adult Surgical Heart Unit (ASHU), I am left with a deep respect for the work you do there.”
