The Doctor is great, but the office and nursing staff are really who you see and speak to. No attention to the doc; he doesn't return calls or interact with you unless you make an appointment. Go elsewhere.

I am a 67 yr old male who has put his trust in Dr Subbarao for over 13 years now and would highly recommend his services to anyone. Friends in the medical community recommended him to me when I first moved to Denver and I also noticed he was recognized by 5280 Magazine as a top heart doc. 10 years ago I moved to Thornton and I still use him as my cardiologist. He has tremendous bedside manner, listens to all my questions (I always have a list), I never feel rushed. He really cares. Gary Gaudin

When I was first diagonesd with afib at Rose, Dr. Subaro was the attending physican and I have been his patient since 2011. In 2017 it was determined that I need heart surgery and was recomended to an excellent surgeon by Dr. Subbaro. I will remain his patient and I recommend him to everyone.
