Dr. Turakhia was friendly and supportive but also very professional. He answered any question I asked without issue. His staff was equally supportive and professional. I would recommend him to anyone who needed to see a cardiologist.

Dr. Turakhia saved my life by diagnosing my symptoms as being consistent with those of pulmonary embolism(s). Of course, I would highly recommend him to all my family and friends. In fact, my spouse is also a patient at his Clear Lake office. He is intelligent and friendly. I couldn't ask for a better physician in charge of monitoring my heart/pulmonary health.

Have known for 30+ years. Has taken care of myself and husband. Husband has had many heart attacks and/or other heart diseases, also 2-AF surgeries. He's very thorough, direct with patients, a kind and gentle doctor. His staff is great (Mary Ann), she works very hard to help him in whatever service he may need. The best nurse ever. So glad that we're (husband & wife) happy to have him as our heart doctor. Don't think we would trust anyone else as much as we do Dr. Turakhia & staff.
