in West Alexandria, Ohio |
Dr. Kulshrestha saved my life. Explained everything in detail about my aortic heart valve replacement surgery. And while I was in the hospital I noticed he was there all the time. He is wonderful!
Lake Havasu City, AZ |
He performed a carotid artery dissection on my left artery on 10-26-16. He was very attentive, thorough and kind. He has my trust. I have never felt as confident with any doctor as I feel with him. Waiting now for a follow up appointment. He treated me as an emergency room patient.
