If you need a heart surgeon, look no further! Dr. Kathuria is the best! He replaced an aortic valve and 4 by-passes on my husband who developed complications and Dr. Kathuria saved his life. We had tears at our last appt. as we felt secure and safe in his care. We've never seen such a dedicated, skilled doctor. I would rate Dr. Kathuria as 5 stars +++++

I had my bypass surgery done by Dr Kathuria on the 6th of June 2017. Perfect job, even the first day in the ICU, barely had any pain. Recovering was with no complication, just overall an excellent job. On a personal level, He is a very carrying , professional and i was most taken back how humble he is. If you are fortunate enough to have dr Kathuria as your surgeon, you should be really not worry, you are in excellent hands, and your recovery will be smooth and speedy. Joseph

Dr. Kathuria has performed open heart surgery on both of my parents. He is a professional who will watch out for his patients and will be direct with you. I can't believe the hours he works when performing surgery. Thank you for saving both my mom and dad!

Dr. Kathuria performed mitral valve repair for me. During our consultations he was very certain I would need a replacement valve so I chose the one that was best for me. During surgery however, Dr. Kathuria discovered he could repair my valve.My new cardiologist believes Dr. Kathuria is extremely ethical based on the fact that the surgery would have been easier if he had done the replacement. 1.5 years later I am healthy with no murmur! Thank you!
