Dr. Saibal Kar saved my mother's life, after three different hospitals and a dozen physicians told me to take her home and call hospice care. He is one of the top and most experienced cardiac interventional doctors the country.
in Valley Gloen, CA |
Dr. Kar is outstanding! He took the time to explain what was he diagnosed and the treatment options. He listens and he explains situations where I can understand. He really cares about his patients. I am glad he is my cardiologist!

He stented two arteries in my heart as I was hours to days away from a heart attack and totally resolved my problem and my chest pain.
