I had a follow up visit with Dr. Dodla after I was hospitalized for the first time for my heart. I waited over an hour even though there was only a couple of us there. I naturally had questions since I was active, healthy and I've never been hospitalized for anything before. She told me I'm fine without doing any test or listen to my concerns regarding shortness of breath, dizziness and rapid heart rate. If I didn't seek a second opinion, I most likely would be gone by now.

I have been a patient of Dr. Dodla for several years. She always specializes in her cardiac care for every patient, including me. Each person feels like they are her only patient. She always listens, and genuinally cares about your feedback. I would always recommend Doctor Dodla to anyone ( including my own family ) because in my opinion, there's none better.

I am a Vietnam Vet and have been going to Dr. Dodla for over a year now. She did a cat scan on my heart and found that I have Pulmonary Fibrosis on my lungs along with coronary artery spasms. She told me I needed a pacemaker and needed it now. Dr. Dodla is a very good, no excellent heart Dr. and I have put all my trust in her. You can speak one on one with her and she has an answer for you or will get it for you if you need to know something. My wife also sees her for her heart Dr.
