Dr Prasad is the most caring doctor I have ever dealt with. Being the caregiver of my parents both in their late 80's I can't say enough about the professionalism and compassion that he has displayed. He makes my parents feel special cared for. Just a truly wonderful person.

Dr. Prasad is outstanding. At my visit, he took the time to listen to each of my concerns and considered them carefully. He then implemented a reasonable plan to rule out any serious issues and to try to get to the bottom of my symptoms. He explained how the heart works, what might cause problems and what the symptoms of those problems would be. He explained how each drug that might help works and what the side effects of each drug might be. He went the extra mile to make sure that I understood the choices and helped me make the right ones for my situation.

I am the caregiver for my elderly parents in their 90's. I have been bringing my Mom to Dr. Prasad for over 3-years now and I just had to leave a review for this terrific doctor ! Dr. Prasad is the most-caring, and personable doctor of all of my Mom's practitioners. He shows genuine care and concern for her well-being and is a very competent and knowledgeable cardiologist ! He takes the time to listen, which we've found not so true for her other practitioners. This is so refreshing ! His staff there are all very nice and helpful also ! A great experience with every visit ! If you want the best cardiac-care, you needn't go any further.

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.
