Patient Comments (3)
Dunnellon, FL |
Dr. Prashad is extremely well qualified and very experienced. I went to him for the first time with mild pain in my throat during exercise. After examining me in his office he said I had a blockage, maybe more than one, probably on the left side of my heart, and that I needed a cardiac catheterization. The cath was so bad that I needed immediate heart surgery. The "widow maker" artery (left side) was 95% blocked. A surgeon performed a double bypass and said I was lucky to be alive

Dr. Prashad is both very professional and very personable. He explains, he asks questions and he listens. He makes one feel comfortable in asking a question.
