We were referred to Dr Kasirajan by our local cardiologist. I am so glad we followed his recommendation. Dr Kasirajan is wonderful. He listens to your concerns and makes sure you are comfortable with his treatment plan. He invites you to ask questions and does not make you feel rushed. He takes as much time as you need. My husband's surgery involved an extra procedure, but everything went smoothly and he was able to leave the hospital after 5 days. His recovery has been trouble free.

Dr. Kasirajan is an excellent Surgeon in his field. He suggests the best available option for the situation and some times insists it. He can insist because he knows what he is doing. I went through a CABG surgery for which he was the Chief surgeon. He came recommended by department heads of other prestigious Universities in the same field. He did a phenomenal job during surgery and had his son watch me throughout my 1 week of stay. He is one of the best in Richmond VA for CABG.

Dr. K is a brilliant doctor and gifted surgeon. My surgery went perfectly. I talked to other surgeons and they only gave my procedure a 50-70% likelihood of success, Dr. K said there was a 95% chance his team could fix my valve and he did it.
