It's rare to find a physician that is willing to take time to explain all the various aspects of your condition and more importantly one that is focused on the whole you. Dr. Sarda is that physician to me.

We ended up seeing Dr. Sarda unexpectedly following my husband's poor stress test score. Although we knew he was behind schedule, he treated us like he had all day. He had more patience than most any dr. I've encountered. He listened, he had a great sense of humor and he told us he thought we'd need a bypass based on what he saw on the test. And turns out he was right, we had an angiogram done and there was no choice but to do a bypass due to so many bad blockages. We would definitely recommend

I will NEVER recommend this doctor to anybody!! Terribly unethical - I came very close to turning him into the Iowa Board of Medicine for his behavior due to the horrible things he said to my family. Please be careful when dealing with this man!
