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
