My last visit to his office was on May 8, 2020. I saw his associate that day Jennifer Halfmann, FNP. I have regular scheduled visits every six months to their Grace Cardiology Clinic in Lubbock, Texas. I feel that Dr. Ranganath and his associate Jennifer Halfmann provide me excellent care of a preventative nature for all my cardiology concerns.

I have a rare condition and went through 8 heart doctors in this town that said nothing was wrong with. Some even disagreed with what Mayo clinic said. He was first heart doctor I had in Lubbock that actually listened to what was going on with me. Between him and my family doctor the two of them were able to get the help I needed. I would not recommend any other heart doctor than him. He has been the best I’ve had. When my wive started having issues first place I thought of and he was able to diagnose her first visit and tests proved him correct. He is best cardiologist in Lubbock in my opinion

Dr. Ranganath is a straight forward doctor who looks out for his patients. I discovered a family history of heart disease when I was 37years old and he took a very good approach to making sure I would not have the same issues. He and his staff are top notch and have been a pleasure to have as my health care team.

If you are looking for a cardiologist who is highly intelligent, competent, and truly cares about your health, then you have that physician in Dr. Ranganath. He is taking excellent care of my husband who has only two arteries supplying blood to his heart. Every time he leaves 'John,' he says, "Don't worry my friend; I will take care of you." To someone with marginal life, those words are a great comfort. We value Dr. Ranganath; you will, too.

Dr. Ranganath was responsive to my need for a short-notice appointment. He listened to my symptoms and diagnosed a problem that had been misdiagnosed at another facility. He took the time to explain my condition and the treatment for it and answered all my questions. I found Dr. Ranganath to be competent, caring, and responsive, so much so that I intend to continue as his patient.

This was my first visit with Dr Raganath. He is very patient and really seems to understand what I say. Also asked questions that me feel like he wanted to know my situation. Also my wife has been seeing him for several years. After she had surgery last year I saw him in the hospital and he recognized me as her husband and asked about her.
