    Three months ago I have met Dr Gandhavadi in Mercy general hospital with my health issues. I should say he is not only a highly professional doctor but a wonderful and caring person who explains step by step the procedure and following treatments with encouragement that everything would be good. Talking to him and listening gives you confidence and faith in recovery and stamina. Thank You, Doctor very much for incredible help in returning back to my almost usual everyday life! With deep respect, Lilly Oleynik

    This physician is a splendid clinician. He told me exactly what I wanted to know and no more since I was stressed about the procedure. The day of the procedure he listened to me and decided to decrease my one medication that night after surgery. He uses the latest techniques to make recovery quicker and safer. My post op visit was interesting and I told him how painlessly my recovery was and it was specifically due to his skills. If you are in need of a procedure that is covered by his area of expertise he has offices in East Sacramento and Folsom.

    Dr. G consulted on my hospital care, ensured I had access to see him the following week after being released, explained the issue (SVT) and the treatment options in an understandable manner, and used humor to lighten the mood! Once we agreed upon the course of action (Catheter Ablation), he walked through the process with clarity and never talked as if he was superior to me. The CA was performed less than a week later! I’m no longer on medication to mitigate the SVT because of the successful CA! Dr G treated me with kindness and respect. I thank God for Dr G!
