Sparrow TCI Patient Kathy Gardener

Kathy Gardener had a very real reason for the fear that gripped her when she was told she needed open heart surgery: Her daughter died during a similar surgery years ago. After meeting with highly skilled physician Hisham Qandeel, M.D., however, Kathy felt at ease and put her trust in Sparrow’s leading-edge care.
“I have so much gratitude and appreciation for everyone that took care of me,” Kathy said. “Dr. Qandeel is truly a blessing. I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor.”
