Arrived at IRMC by ambulance suffering from a major hear attack. Dr. Pillai was there to meet me in the ER. Thanks to his quick response and the personnel at IRMC I was quickly rushed for a heart catheterization and 2 stents implanted in my right Coronary Artery. This proceedure took only 1 hour saving my heart from severe damage. I thank Dr. Pillai, his team, IRMC ER personnel and ICU nurses for giving me my life back!

I suffered a mild heart attack and was admitted to the hospital to have a cardiac cath and stent placed the next morning by Dr Pillai. I felt very worried but knew I was also in very good hands. He was extremely caring, competent and reassuring and took the time to educate me and my family about the procedure and medications that I would need to take to ensure a full recovery. My follow-up visit to his office was also a very good experience. Thanks to Dr. Pillai, I'm living my life again.

Dr Pillai gave a thorough and precise explanation of the artery blockage he expected to find and what he planned for the remedy. My condition was exactly as predicted and the recovery has been extremely easy. The staff was well organized and expedient in preping me. The catheterization entry site on my wrist left virtually no skin damage and no pain during recovery thru today being 5 days post op. He saved my life. Thank you Dr Pillai. Sincerely John Semon

Dr. Pillai is one of the most intelligent doctors I have met in my life. He is not only exceptionally skilled in what he does, he is able to explain medicine in a way that even I, with no medical background, can easily follow and understand. He is a very caring and compassionate individual. I can not recommend him enough, he is one of the few people I would trust the lives of my loved ones with. Thank you Dr. Pillai for all you do!

An incredibly caring and attentive, interventional cardiologist. He blends the caring normally associated with a traditional country doctor with the expertise normally associated with a cutting-edge city doctor. He has excellent bedside manners and is willing to go the extra mile for his patients. He explains matters and never tires of answering questions. He has a charisma that inspires serenity and wellbeing in me.

I arrived in critical condition. Dr. Pillai immediately escorted me to the Cath-Lab diagnosed STEMI and inserted two stents. He visited with me after the procedure to review what had happened and what was done. He and his team are true professionals. They couldn't have been more responsive or professional. I highly recommend Dr Pillai and his staff for cardiovascular care. Thank you Dr. Pillai.

On April 25, 2017 Dr. Pillai performed a wrist heart cath and he was excellent. Very professional and then on May 11 he performed a TEE and it went very well. I would recommend Dr. Pillai to my family and friends anytime. I am very satisified with his professionalism and his relationship with his patients. He takes to time to explain everything in detail.

I was a patient of Dr. Pillai in Fishersville, Virginia. He is an excellent Doctor. He takes his time to not only explain everything, but makes you feel comfortable. Virginia lost an excellent doctor. He is very knowledgeable in all heart problems. I highly recommend him.

I am blessed and thankful to have met and been in the care of Dr. Pillai when I came to Indiana Regional Medical Center's Emergency Room. I would recommend this brilliantly skilled doctor for all heart related procedures. I cannot thank Dr. Pillai and his staff enough for all they have done for me. We no longer need to travel to Pittsburgh for heart related procedures that are skillfully done right here at IRMC thanks to Dr. Pillai.

I give the highest recommendation for Dr. Pillai. He treats you with consideration and respect. My heart procedure went as well as could be expected. He made sure that I was taken care of before, during and after the procedure.

Dr. Pillai saved my life when I was having a heart attack on Christmas Eve. Even on Christmas day he was right there doing everything in his power to kept me alive and not only that kept my wife informed of everything taking place. We are so lucky to have this doctor in Indiana. After being discharged from the hospital he set down with my wife and I explaining everything that took place when I had my heart attack. We would recommend him to anyone that needs his care. He is #1 in our book.
