I was Referred over by my Doctor from Kaiser to Dr. Veeragandam. I could see why now. He is a great surgeon and his staff and colleagues simply put were amazing. Before and after care was great, plus he and others took the time and answered all my questions and I did not feel rushed at all. The stay at John Muir were he preformed a triple by pass for me was also simply the BEST. 3 months post now and planning to return to work now and start cardiac recovery program. Thank you Dr. Veeragandham.

Dr Veeragandhan is an outstanding surgeon. Thanks to him my mother is still alive today. He operated on her on an aortic aneurysm at age 92. God bless you for helping others .

Recently I had bypass surgery in Concord California at John Muir Medical Center with Dr Veeragandham. He is known for being a great surgeon but the man inside is very special. My experience with him before and after surgery was outstanding as he constantly gave me trust that all would be well. His communication with me and my son before and after surgery was superb. I am recovering quite well and am totally self sufficient after three weeks. Michael Bean
