If you want to wait 2 hours to see a specialist for 5 minutes of your time (most of it talking to his recorder), he is your guy!

Dr. Bethala saved my husband's life when he correctly diagnosed and found his heart blockages which were corrected with a quadruple bypass surgery. He is very caring and answers all your questions and concerns by explaining everything. I highly recommend him and am having a carotid artery surgery performed by him in a few days because I am so confident in his skills and knowledge!

I would not recommend Dr. Perhaps. My husband was his patient. One night his blood pressure spiked to about 300. He had a appointment with Dr Bethala the next day after spending hours in the hospital the night before. Dr Bethala canceled his appointment and his staff refused to let him see any of the Drs. In the practice. They do not care about patient's well being!!!
