My whole experience with Dr. Patrawala has been amazing. From the minute he entered the room, with his "scribe", allowing eye contract during the consult, I was impressed. I have had a difficult time with getting not only the care level that I desired, but more importantly, feeling that I have been heard, and that my concerns are valid and will be handled. Dr. Patrawala took time to read the records I had hand carried, and restored my confidence in getting the best care in his hands.

I had an ablation procedure to correct for a large number of PVCs I was experiencing each day. After an exam, Dr. Patrawala said I was a good candidate for heart ablation to stop the PVCs, answering my all questions regarding the procedure. On the day of the procedure, all his staff and Dr. Patrawala himself treated me very well. The procedure itself was much less traumatic than I had imagined and successful! I highly recommend Dr. Patrawala to anyone in need of this procedure.
