Accepting new patients
Headshot of Basel Ramlawi, MD, FACS, FACC

My goal as a heart surgeon is to offer patients the same high level of skill, ingenuity, care, and compassion I would want for my loved ones should they need heart surgery. This is why I am dedicated to providing best-in-class heart care. I hold myself accountable for having the skills to provide all available treatment options'including the newest, most advanced, or technically complex'and the knowledge to know which option is best for each patient. When a patient has options for treatment, I make sure that patient understands each option and how it will impact quality of life. Then, we work together to tailor-make a therapy that will allow the patient to reap the best rewards. I want the best outcomes for all my patients'to have them experience a quick recovery and return for follow up doing far better than when they entered my care. That is my promise to every patient and every referring physician who entrusts me with the care of their patient.
