Dr. Gupta installed my 3rd defibrillator. The 2 previous ones was installed at another hospital by another Dr. The 2nd. installment was a bad installment and therefore I went to Dr. Gupta, since he is closer to where I live. He did a "super Job" installing the 3rd. one as a matter of fact he did a much better job than the previous d DR. that is supposed to be a very known specialist. Dr. Gupta did a better Job .. period .. I highly recommend Dr. Gupta and I'm glad I have him do the installation

I have experienced atrial flutter every 4 to 5 years for the last 20 years. As a result, I have become considerably rigorous in my consideration of treatment options and administering physicians. My expectations were very high and Dr Gupta met or exceeded all of them. He is not only a superior technical professional but his interpersonal skills are exceptional as well. I don't do reviews but am honored to do this one and fortunate to have him as a critical part of my heart health portfolio.
