My mom has various health issues and symptoms. Since switching to Dr. Bukkapatnam, I no longer worry if my mother is getting the best care possible. Unlike our previous cardiologist, Dr. B listens and is professional, proactive and provides recommendations to keep my mom out of the ER. She is actively engaged in my mother's care so much so that I have even received calls from her on weekends and evenings if I needed to make any medication adjustments or take action. She is so wonderful that I am happy to travel from Elk Grove to Carmichael to have my mom in her care. I cannot say enough and would recommend her to anyone looking for exceptional cardiac care.
