Dr. Despande was able to diagnose & treat my Dysautonomia after many other doctors failed. He is kind & takes his time with you. I've referred many people to him. His assistant Kathy is also a wonderful asset.

Dr. Deshpande is an outstanding physician! He explained my condition thoroughly and even drew diagrams to help me visualize and better understand the issue and the way in which the surgical procedure would address the rhythm problem I experienced. His bedside manner and the follow-up I received post-surgery, were both excellent. He is a knowledgeable, caring and thorough doctor who inspires confidence and makes stressful situations seem manageable for his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Deshpande!

I saw Dr. Deshpande in January and could not be happier with him. He is very personable, spends as much time as you want talking about issues and concerns and has all the right answers regarding future plans for the condition I am there for. I feel very secure knowing I am in the right place.

Dr. Sanjay S. Despande was absolutely outstanding. Not only was he an empathic and good listener to my concerns, but he also provided me with the very best response and answer through verbal communication and drawing on a chalk board. Wow, I was impressed for no physician had ever explained the difference and purpose between the medications I was taking and how they worked in my body so thoroughly. His physician assistant, Lena Michel, was equally impressive.

My experience with Dr. Deshpande and his entire staff has been exceptional. I came under Dr. Deshpande's care during and following quintuple by-pass surgery and found his professionalism, expertise and empathetic care so important to my peace of mind and strong rehabilitation. Each member of his staff displayed those same qualities which informed me of the guiding ethos which makes this such a wonderful clinic.

Dr. Deshpande and team are stand out providers. Appts are very thorough, including diagnostics, review of functioning and careful interview. They educate about recommended treatments and involve patient and caregivers in decision-making. They are always responsive to calls outside of appts and their follow through is immediate and impeccable. I directly credit Dr. D and his staff with recently saving my mother’s life. They came to her hosp bed w/in 5 minutes of my call & + chged things. Thxs!

Over 20 years ago Dr. Deshpande literally saved my life. I went into V-tech and he wouldn't let me out of hospital until placing a defibrillator in me. Three months later, I had a shower of shocks, which meant that my device went off 18 times in a 24 hours period. Had I not had the device, I would not have survived that incident Dr Deshpande has been outstanding with my care for the past 22 years. I wouldn't go to any other Electrophysiologist. He is simply the best.

Dr. Deshpande and his great team of PA's, nurses, techs and schedulers are very patient-centric and really know their stuff and take the time necessary to explain confusing concepts and find successful methods of treatment. I have been challenged by AFib for over 10 years and his team really worked to help implement a solution that would work for me.

Dr Deshpande and his entire staff in his office and all that worked with him in the electrophysiology department at St. Mary's Ozaukee were very professional, thoughtful, kind, able to explain very technical and complicated situations with my heart and provided effective treatment. Dr Deshpande diagnosed my atrial tachycardia which led to an ablation. I am very happy with the results and would highly recommend Dr Deshpande and his staff to anyone who needs his very specific care and expertise.

Dr. Deshpande has been my electrophysiologist for 28 years. I feel so very fortunate to have him as my Dr. Having my device put in at an early age he really took the time to explain everything to me and my family. To this day he and his knowledgable staff are alway there to listen and talk through any concerns that I may have. I recently moved to the Chicago area and make the drive up to Milwaukee for my office visits. Thank you for taking such good care of me and my heart for so many years!

He was a very kind, personable and really listened to my concerns. I believe he saved my life by explaining the importance of implanting the Medtonic Link (heart monitor) device. Ten months after the diagnostic implant, I needed a pacemaker due to a cardiac block which may not been detected without the device. He has a wonderful demeanor with patients and I am grateful to have him as my cardiologist! He and his staff are also very knowledgeable and wonderful to work with.

Very upset with the care I received while in ICU at Columbia St. Mary's. After a procedure Dr. Deshpande told my husband one thing on the phone, his PAC explained the procedure results to me totally differently, and after my discharge when I did not get the call from his scheduling office like I was told, I called and my records in the system had totally different information!
