Very caring & made me feel comfortable at a scary time for me.
Stafford, VA |
Our first visit with Dr. Prasad was very satisfactory. His professional demeanor, thorough questioning, ability to focus in on the core issue quickly, excellent listening skills, pleasant personal interaction - all added up to an excellent and confidence building experience. The medical assistant, Brandi, was careful, attentive, informative, friendly and professional - very reassuring. The office staff, Katelynn and Darcie, treated patients with courtesy, efficiency. Excellent experience.

Dr. Prasad did a angioplasty procedure on me on May 1st, 2017 following a heart attack the day before and my admission to Mary Washington Hospital. He is very thorough, very personal, has excellent bedside manners and took the time to explain the procedure before and following using illustrations to explain his findings and action to me & my family. he found a 80% blockage which he opened up and inserted a stent. Others not as severe that he is treating with medicine.

Dr. Prasad, is a caring, compassionate Doctor. He spends as much time as necessary to explain and listen to your concerns. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a cardriologist who cares.

Dr Prasad takes the time to actually listen to you. He is open to alternative ways to deal with an issue.
in Fredericksburg, VA |
Dr. Prasad is a very patient and informative doctor. He tells you like it is. He listens to you and gives you his opinion of what he feels should be done. I just had a catheterization and it went really well. I had a little tenderness at the site but by the next day I was fine. He is a very good doctor and I would recommend him to anyone who needs a doctor of their heart.

I would recommend Dr. Prasad to friends and family. He was very thorough and seemed very knowledgeable to my situation.
Stafford, VA |
He is THE most considerate, knowledgeable, caring doctor I have ever seen!
in Fredericksburg, VA |
Dr. Prasad was extremely kind, listened well and explained things in a clear way. He ordered tests to eliminate any possibilities of a problem before attributing my symptoms to something minor and manageable; he didn't want to make an assumption and then discover later here was a different underlying problem. I found this very refreshing because he was not dismissive of my concerns, as others have been, but still gave me a sense of re-assurance and comfort. He has definitely earned my trust.

I am a Caregiver for a 91 year old male with a pacemaker. Dr. Prasad has been taking care of him for a few years. When my baby brother had a Heart Attack. I decided to get checked out. I can't think of anyone else I would go to. He treats you with respect and explains things. He will do anything to help with your medical needs. I have been to see him with the gentle man I take care of several times after his Pace Maker was installed. The Old Man Likes Him. He doesn't like many Doctors.

An amazing doctor...Very impressed with his knowledge and bedside manner. Highly recommended
in Stafford, VA |
Dr Prasad listened to each of my issues and concerns and then discussed each one individually. Since I had self-educated on coronary issues, he did not respond negatively as a few Doctors do, and went into in depth answers. I am impressed with his knowledge and care for resolve to my medical issue. His staff was very friendly and helpful.

Best most caring doctor I have ever met. Takes the time and has the patience to care for my 80plus year old parents. Just a great guy.

I had a very comfortable and knowledgeable experience with this doctor. He put me at ease and gave me concise information of what could possibly be the diagnosis.
