Best cardiologist ever. Super smart and very skilled. He knew exactly how to deal with my situation. If you have a rhythm condition and need an ablation, this is the doctor to see

I was unhappy with my doctor so I met with Dr. Vasaiwala who immediately prescribed a different course of action for my Afib. I had problems tolerating the medicines as it was making me sleepy, so we did the ablation process. It turned out great. 6 months now without any issues. Dr. Vasaiwala was extremely informative and I felt like he genuinely cared about me. Would highly recommend him.

One of the most down to earth patient physicians that I have met. He is clearly busy but never seems rushed.

Arrogant. Inexperienced. Unprofessional.

I was receiving several shocks from my defibrillator. this doctor saved me from getting a heart transplant by doing a complex ablation procedure. He is very well liked and respected by the staff there at Loyola and I wasn't surprised. Would highly recommend him and his team.

I went in for an initial visit with the doctor; he did not seem concerned with my condition.He did order a two week monitor for my heart. I had an appointment with my PC and he asked me about my test results; I told him I never heard back from Dr. V.. My PC found out my test results and insisted I needed to get back with Dr. V. I was told by the doctor that he would not help me. I found out from my PC that the doctor's records of my visit did not match my version. I have witnesses to this.

My first ablation was stopped half-way through when heart sac was punctured by a new, test catheter. I was not told for 90 days the full extent of this until my family doctor with the same hospital read the details during a follow-up visit. I massively hemorrhaged, flat-lined but never had this explained to me completely. The second ablation also had an incident whereby a lymph gland was punctured and drained extensively for a week. It was essentially ignored. Told I was one for the books.
