It was a pleasure meeting Dr.V Sathyakumar who took the time to patiently listen to the detailed history dating the last 37 years, when I had cardiac problems leading to a triple CABG surgery at the London Heart & Chest Hospital In the UK, and the treatment that I have been receiving In the United States, where I have settled down since the past 24 years. Dr.Sathyakumar is very very soft spoken, cool and above all very thorough and methodical In his approach, when he chalked out the "do's and dont's" going forward and planning tests methodically, with the results that doing the hour that I spent with him I was thoroughly Impressed and confident with his assertiveness approach. The supporting staff at the front desk were very professional, and patient in meticulously explaining and accommodating the seamless appointments for the month. Kudos to the center for the treatment that was meted out to me all through the time I entered the facility at the entrance of the Building till the time I exited the wonderful facility.

He saw me on very short notice for an erratic bp issue as a sub for my regular cardiologist who was booked up. I was extraordinarily pleased - he had read my entire file in the short time he had prior to seeing me, quickly discovered the reason for my bp issue (after a thorough discussion with me), developed and implemented a reasonable plan to resolve and explained every reason in detail to me. I am much better informed about my medications than I have ever been. He listened carefully to me, asked questions to solicit applicable responses and included me in the decision. I am overjoyed with this doctor.
