Dr. Twiss spent, I felt, a proper amount of time with me and answered my questions after my examination. We had testing done for my condition, then I saw his nurse practitioner on my next visit. I would recommend him to other patients

Review for Dr. Janardhanan

Dr. Drake is a very caring and understanding doctor. She listens to everything you tell her and then gives excellent advice on how to proceed. I am grateful to have found such a wonderful doctor.

Review for Dr. Drake

Dr. Janardhanan is excellent. Seeing a cardiologist can be stressful, but he is kind, proactive, knows his stuff, and takes time to explain things and inquire about my overall well-being. His is also very responsive, and his staff is wonderful. Highly recommended.
