I had a cardiac event in 2011 that required an ER visit with subsequent heart catheterization and stents. Doctor Vivek was the "on call" cardiologist and he truly was a life saver! I have been his patient since that time and I am completely satisfied with his care.

I am a registered nurse and recently had my mother move in. She had a heart attack in January of this year and needed to be closer to me. I worried about how to find her a doctor that would accept her medical needs and insurance. Dr. Kris Vivek was more than available to accept my mother and met all of her needs immediately. They have an in-house staff with radiology available to do ultrasounds that was great. No need to go to other places for test. Dr. Vivek was terrific for everything.

Brought my dad from out of state seeking a doctor for my dad with congestive hear failure. He was hospitalized and seen by Dr. Vivek. We he was released, Dr. Vivek started seeing him. He got him on track and his heart function improved from 20 percent to almost 50 percent. He is an excellent doctor and I am so glad that he is taking care of my dad.
