What People Say About Dr. Rizwan Karatela, MD

My Mom is now a patient of Dr Karatela and I will definitely also be joining my Dad to his practice for ongoing check ups and treatment. I usually go with my parents to doctor appointments and from past experience compare to our experience now with Dr Karatella, I will say that he is an excellent cardiologist. He is highly knowledgeable, experienced, and never recommends more than what is necessary. He didn't rush the office visit, took the time to look at my Mom's prior test results and explained everything in detail. Very caring and trustworthy doctor, I would highly recommend him.

This is the most dedicated Doctor I have seen in a long time truly cares about his patients and goes that extra mile to get them the best care possible. I have 2 other Doctors and 1 friend who suggested I see him. They were 100% in the right for endorsing Dr. Karetela. I am glade he is on the staff at JKF.

I saw him about some heart contusions and I was worried, perhaps I would die of this? But Rizwan assured me this is impossible to die from. He took me to the back room and did testings and everything was so clean, I had an amazing waiting room experience, this man knows his STUFF
