As a new patient, I was extremely pleased with Dr Divaran. He was very thorough in researching my records. I have experienced various issues with my heart and he answered my questions and has prescribed new medication that will help me. I hope to continue to be one of his patients.

I am extremely impressed with Dr. Divakaran's professionalism, courtesy and respect. He first treated me in the hospital for a freak episode of Afib, and his was a calm reassuring voice amid the confusion of what was happening to me. He takes great care to provide me with health care options and to indicate evidence behind each choice. I feel very privileged to have him as a health care provider. Only problem: I wish he treated every condition so I could see him for everything!
