in Concord, CA |
Dr. Dharan performed a Mitral Valve repair on me back in Nov 2015. I researched quite a few Dr's in my area and he came highly recommended but other Dr's including a friend of mine who happens to be an ER Dr. He was very polite and answered all my questions.

I don't recommend Dr.Dharan. He has a really poor bedside manner. 30 mins before my mom's surgery, he failed to draw her blood and poked through her vein due to lack of skills. He didn't apologize, instead, after my mom said it's hurting, he said: it isn't a big deal to be hurting for a minute. And he threatened her surgery might be cancelled. My mom had a heart attack 2 months ago, and his rude demeanor negatively affected her emotional disposition. He demonstrated no empathy. Disappointing

Dr. Dharan performed my open heart surgery in Feb of 2015. Honestly, more than a year later, I am feeling better than ever. He is an amazing surgeon.
