Joyce was considered a high risk PAD patient until she visited FCCI. Learn more about Peripheral Artery Disease here. “I call Dr. Khatib a miracle worker. I couldn’t ask for a better doctor, a better procedure or better results. I was considered high risk. I was going to tell the doctor I wasn’t going to have the surgery because the outlook wasn’t that great…[Dr. Khatib] said would you like to have a procedure here and take care of this where you go in as an outpatient? I couldn’t believe it…My main thing was I wanted to be able to get to walk on the beach with my husband. We’ve done that now. It’s like my problems of PAD had never happened. It feels that good.”
-Joyce, patient of Dr. Yazan Khatib
Peripheral Artery Disease almost cost Carla her leg. Dr. Bell and Dr. Khatib were able to prevent amputation and change her life.
“Thank you for the anniversary.” “This year my husband [Ed] and I will enjoy celebrating our 50th anniversary. It is my firm belief without the care afforded to him, we would not be so lucky. Thank you for taking Ed as a patient. You have been there in the middle of the night with Ed in the cath lab. I guess what I am trying to say is thank you for the anniversary…My world has been made better for knowing you.”
– Ed was a patient of Dr. Lamba’s
Shirley was referred to Dr. Ibrahim because he is “the best.” “My primary doctor is the one who recommended [Dr. Ibrahim] for me. He said ‘He is the best. If you have to have all this done, this is the one you want.’ Dr. Ibrahim was so wonderful from the beginning…He was just very upbeat and down to earth and humble. The office team is wonderful and friendly. It makes everybody happy.”
