San Marcos, CA |
Excellent physician. Dr. Sawhney always took time to explain everything clearly, and has the most soothing and supportive bedside manner. He schedules appointments himself(!) so that's easy, and his staff is dilligent about following up.
in Temecula, CA |
After being diagnosed with persistent Atrial Fibrillation by my primary cardiologist, I was referred to Dr. Sawhney for consultation when the strongest medication for preventing a-fib, proved ineffective. Dr. Sawhney was patient, answering all of my questions, gave me all of my options to consider and successfully treated my condition. I was not a textbook case, but Dr. Sawhney saw me through to the freedom from a-fib. I feel like I have my life back again, free from worry and stress.
