November 2018 I realized that I had some symptoms that should be reported to a cardiologist. Dr. Karnati was the one nearest. That was and is the best luck I could have had. His examination and results of the proper tests led to his prompt and successful catheterization/stent of one of my coronary arteries. Dr. Karnati is superb. I've followed his instructions regarding medication, diet and other matters and I feel fine. I highly recommend Dr. Karnati, his staff and BSW of Lakeway.
