Both Dr. Davakaran and his physician's assistant did an excellent job of talking out the issues and coming to a good long term plan for a healthy outlook. Actually enjoyed the visit. The computer was NOT the focal point. I was the focal point. That is a tremendous step in the right direction. I look forward to my next visit. Your staff has done an excellent job at improving service to the patient. Thank you for a job well done.

Dr. Devokaran is the BEST. I've had 8 or 9 cardiologists over the years and he is by far the best. Top of the line.
