Dr. "K" cleared a blockage that was in front of the first stent I had placed in Dec. 2015. Due to the location my original cardiologist referred me to him. I found Dr. "K" to be upfront as to what might or might not happen, he took time to address my questions and after the procedure when I had a bad reaction to the contrast dye, he came to my hospital room to follow up and make sure I was alright after being given medication to control the hives. I wish he was my doctor all the time!

Dr. Kalyanasundaram is very professional, empathetic, honest and extremely diligent. He not only placed a stent in a very important artery to my husband's heart but discovered a shadow in my husband's lung beforehand. It was discovered that my husband has stage two lung cancer and had this gone undetected, who knows what the outcome may have been. He is extremely caring towards his patients and their families. We would highly recommend him to anyone who may need his expertise.

Dr. Kalyanasundaram ( Dr. K ), is an excellent Cardiologist! He is using & spreading his knowledge on the latest techniques involving opening occluded arteries & installing stents. In my case, he opened an artery that had been totally blocked for about 21 yrs & installed 4 stents to reestablish blood flow; which will give me a better quality of life & possibly a longer life! My experience has only been the best & I would highly recommend his services to everyone needing a Cardiologist.

As always, Dr. K. takes all the time needed to discuss any concerns I have, whether it is about health or medications. No matter where he would go in the Seattle area, he will be MY DOCTOR. But thats only until I reach 94 years of age. Then I will quit spending money on health care.

Dr K took over my former cardiologist's practice so he became very attentive managing my heart murmur. Frequent echocardiograms and continued monitoring by Dr K led to a heart catherization and an eventual aortic valve replacement. I would hope that my relationship with Dr K will continue to be open and professional

I can never express my gratitude enough to Dr. K for clearing two very difficult arteries! My former doctor failed his attempt as they were too badly clogged. He referred me to Dr. K as a last resort. Dr. K. explained what he would attempt to do, cleared BOTH arteries, and even took the time to show us pictures of what it looked like before and after they were cleared. I will be forever grateful to him! I tell everyone I know what a fantastic physician he is and what miracles he performs

Dr. Kalyanasundaram is a brilliant, talented, straight to the point Cardiologist who has taken excellent care of me. He has given me the gift of living a full active life, with his knowledge and caring of my health and happiness. I feel he is more then a my Doctor to me but a friend that I can trust. When I am in surgery I have all the confidence in him because of his take charge personality. I would like to Thank Swedish medical for all the great care and for having Doctor K on your staff.

Dr. Arun Kalyanasundara treated me as an inpatient at Swedish on Cherry Hill, he has the worse bedside manor I have ever experienced and wouldn't recommend him to my family or friends. I left the hospital unsure of next steps, unsure he cared and unsure he even knew of my current vs previous meds or procedures he had even ordered. Very dissatisfied He brought more frustration and anxiety to an already bad situation.
