After seeing another cardiologist and having several failed cardioversions, I had a successful cardioversion done by Dr. Ramaswamy. He knew my medical history like the back of his hand and really put personal thought and expertise into planning my procedure. He has amazing bedside manners and is an excellent doc. I’d recommend him to everyone.

I was 22 when I first met him and almost over a year later I owe him. He did an EP study which resulted in 2 ablutions in the process. This was so scary at the time but he was so caring and I couldn’t imagine having anyone else. He knows how to speak on my level when it comes to “medical talk”. If you are having any problems and need a caring dr, he is the guy for you. Very personable and has that hand guiding you in the right path.

Just had an EP study and ablation. Everything was as expected and I was well briefed on what would happen. Entire staff was courteous, caring, and professional. Could not have been better.
