My visit was a pleasant one, with all of my issues addressed right away! Treating the whole person is important. Wait times were a little longer than expected, but not over burdening, as real life happens.

Very brief. Did not ask me many questions about my history or symptoms. I felt he was rushed. Did not listen to my heart, even though I was there for an irregular heartbeat. Said he could not due to Covid. Spent about 5 minutes with me and ordered a battery of tests. He did ask if I had any questions but when you don't have much info you don't know what to ask. At check out not much was explained to me other than where to go when I come for test.

I have been Dr. Kanagala’s patient for about 1 year and have been impressed with his professional bedside manner, and his easy going approach. His office staff is always courteous and helpful, whether on the phone or in person. I consider myself fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Kansgala for specialized cardiac care.

3 years ago Dr. Kanagala accurately diagnosed my cardiac condition. Through his surgical skills he corrected the problem with an ablation procedure and I have had no reoccurrence of tachycardia. At this time, he has ordered a follow-up cardiac monitor study. I am very pleased with his continuing care and concern for my well-being.

My husband had an Ablation for A-Fib. I had worked at Lakeview Hospital in Covington as a travel nurse and had taken care of the patient's post Ablation. They all did extremely well with no complications. We live on the Gulf Coast in Mississippi and there were no physicians that did the ablations. I knew there was another in Baton Rouge, but we did not know him. Dr. Kanagala is a wonderful physician. His explanation of what he was going to do and how you would feel. He is there for the patients and very down to earth. I would recommend Dr. Kanagala everytime. His office and nurses were FANTASTIC!!! We would call, leave a message or question, and was called back with answers quickly. A Fantastic Doctor with an Awesome Staff!! You can't get any better than this.

My husband became a patient of Dr. Kanagala after suffering with long-term AFib. Within a week doctor had my husband in the hospital and performed an ablation. My husband is feeling 100% better. Dr. Kanagala has been professional and personable, caring, and kept us up to date every step of the way. I would reccomend Dr. Kanagala in a heartbeat!

Very impressive. I never knew about an Electrophysiolgist until now. He listened to me and my concerns. It made me and my husband feel comfortable knowing he wants to monitor me himself then go from there. My life has definitely been alot of ups and downs since april. Thank you him and his staff.
