“I just thought you'd like to know about an experience I had this past week. My husband and I went to buy a new van and we met a business manager there who stated that he had gastric bypass by Dr. Venkat back in September. Not only did he look amazing (stating 100 lbs down), but he told me what a wonderful experience he had. He praised Dr. Venkat and his staff, and also stated that he was "treated too good" on the 5th Tower. He said it was his first hospitalization and that he and his wife will never consider going anywhere else but Sacred Heart! They thought the new unit was beautiful and that the staff were very attentive.”

“I have found Dr. Alchaer for my mother. She is the brightest, most compassionate and professional doctor I know. She has put Sacred Heart Hospital in my good graces. She listens and knows exactly what to do, very thorough. The last time we saw her, we told her we had an issue getting in to see a specialist and it was taken care of later that day. I will be seeing her soon and I bet she can help me with my health issues. Again, I love how she takes care of my mother.”
