I have been seeing Dr. swarna for many years. He inserted my first pacemaker in 2008 and have seen me on a routine basis. In 2018 my pacemaker started slowing down. I had been on a trip and returned home called his office that morning and by that afternoon he had instructed to be admitted the next morning and put new batteries in my pacemaker. Since I was there for three days he did other procedures to save me to have done later on outpatient basis. Just saw him for my annual checkup, and he is still very professional, kind and caring. I would recommend him to anyone. I probably would not have lived this long without his care and concern about my health. One of the selection was wait times. I did not have to wait long, and if I had to I know he was busy and caring for someone who needed him. Also, would want the same for me.

First let me say that I sincerely love all of the staff at Cardiology Consultants. They are very professional, informative and extremely cordial. Anytime I am in the building they go above and beyond my highest expectations. I have been fighting a fib for a while, and we finally had a break through and I feel excellently and am looking forward to the next phase, an ablation. I tell everyone I love my doctor, and I do. Thank you Doctor Swarna for your diligent care of all my health needs and may God continue to bless you and your entire staff. Sincerely, Diane Barslow

Was very rude from the moment he entered the room. Was ready to dismiss the symptoms that brought me there as me being fat or stemming from my mental health. He even attempted to dismiss it as depression. I might not be a doctor, but I'm fairly certain that depression doesn't cause shortness of breath on exertion.

Dr. Swarna was extremely friendly and laid back. It helps to have a Physician like that when having to be seen for heart issues. He was also very thorough when explaining my issues and the testing that I have to have done. Dr. Swarna listened to my concerns and answered all questions I had. Never once did I feel he was in a rush to get to his next patient.
