    After an emergency room visit and testing a at in another city, I was enormously fortunate to get an appointment with Dr. Venkat. He carefully & thoroughly explained my condition, gave a thoughtful and detailed assessment of the meaning and ramifications of my symptoms, & provided me with a detailed plan going forward. I found Dr. Venkat to be straightfoward, forthcoming with details, and extremely knowledgeable. I am 100% confident that my care under Dr. Venkat is absolutely superior.

    I met Dr. Venkat for a 2nd opinion & course of treatment for my Afib which was causing severe shortness of breath. Dr. Venkat listened to my treatments, Rx's, sleep apnea test, etc. He recommended a new Cryo-Balloon Ablation that he was instrumental in getting approved for use in the U.S. & Mayo Clinic. He was thorough explaining how it worked vs the traditional heat ablation (success rate, less risk, less time under anesthesia). It was a success for me. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. VENKAT!!!

    I am very impessed with Dr. Venkat and his staff. I was 15 early to my appointment and I was taken in early (unlike my previous doctor who was ALWAYS late -- and sometimes never showed for an appointment). Dr. Venkat spent a considerable amount of time with me listening patiently and answering all of my questions. I never felt rushed. Cathy and Megan on his staff are courteous, efficient and professional. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. It was well worth the 8 hr round.
    He is extremely knowledgable, patient and I felt very comfortable with his diagnosis and recommendations.
