Review of Dr. Garrard

- in Nashville, TN |

Dr. Gerrard is fantastic. You can tell he put in the effort to study patient history to understand the full picture instead of just the affected area. Prior to my surgery, he took the time to explain the procedure and all the potential risks. In addition, he took time to go over and explain my test results. He thoroughly answered all questions and I didn’t feel like he was in a rush. He was compassionate & knowledgeable. I’ll keep him as my vascular doctor as long as possible.

Review of Dr. Garrard

- in Nashville, TN |

Run do not walk away from this poor excuse of a physician. He has no compassion, bedside manner wasn't just poor it was nonexistent and he complained about the little amount of money he was getting reimbursed. Please if you value your health, STAY AWAY!!! I have written numerous reviews and he is the first one that is negative all the way around. Forgot to mention, he almost didn't come out to speak with my family member and my many phone calls to him went unanswered.

Review of Dr. Shah

- in Livingston, TN |

Excellent bedside manner. Very skilled. I required bloodless CABG due to religious reasons. This was not a problem. (I had been turned away from another hospital because they were not equipped to perform my surgery.) I was very confident of the entire staff. Excellent outcome.

Review of Dr. Shah


Dr Shah is not only one of this countries top cardiac surgeons, but he is also truly a caring, compassionate, wonderful human being. I am alive because of the inspired smal hands of lDr Ashish Shah. He is one meticulous surgeon - one of the best anywhere in the world. Cannot give. Dr Shah enough accolades for his life-saving work. Believe me, you CANNOT go wrong of you select Dr Shah as your suregeon for any type of cardiac procedure.
