Dr. Venkatachalam listened carefully to my thinking regarding the treatment I wished to have. He performed a cryo-ablation that has resulted in my being in sinus rhythm for nearly two years. I am very happy with his treatment and care.

DR. Venkat is an amazing doctor! I 100% trust him with my heart health care. He takes the time to listen and also makes the patient very involved in the decision making of one's health. He even took the time out on a Saturday to call me personally to discuss treatment options. Thank you for being such an incredible doctor!

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!!!

Lori O. in Titusville, FL – Aug 18, 2016
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.
