Dr Subbarao always takes the time to listen and answer any questions. He is thorough in his examinations, easy to talk to, and has a great "bedside manner".

I went to three different cardiologists for different opinions on my ECHO test. This office BY FAR beats the other top rated offices and doctors that were recommended to me. He is super approachable and talks to you like a person and makes sure you understand your heart health issues. The technology he has at the office is incredible. I was able to view my ECHO results and he walked me through what I saw. I left the office with a heart monitor whereas the two other offices told me I had to come back another time to pick it up or I had to go to a different location. His operation is just way more advanced the other places. You can tell this is his passion!

In 2007, I was given 3-5 yrs. to live by my former cardiology group but was lucky enough back then to be referred to Dr. Subbarao. That was 13 yrs. ago and thanks to Dr. Subbarao's excellent care, I'm still here. He goes the extra mile, taking time to communicate with my other medical specialists and always considers my overall medical condition, quality of life and any risks involved when any treatment/procedure is proposed. Most importantly, his staff always responds promptly when I call with a heart-related concern. I am so fortunate to be cared for by such a skilled and dedicated physician

Dr. Subbarao's MA was completely incompetent, so much so I called and asked that he was not part of my care for any reason. I did not find Dr. Subbarao, prepared with any review of my medical records, test results or heart monitoring information. I found this and his arrogant approach very unprofessional with lack of concern of current conditions, symptoms or potential progression paths, or timing. I will not ever return or continue any type of care with Dr. Subbarao or his staff and I will ensure my family or friends do not either.

Dr. Subbarao has a good bedside manner and is confident in his understanding of heart issues. I have recently moved but when I was seeing him I felt very comfortable with his treatment options, he is a good choice for a cardiac doc.

This Dr very carefully listens to you and takes the time to answer any questions and really looks at you. Over the years I have been his patient I have recommended him a number of times and I have never mentioned him to any medical professionals who did not say he is the best there is.

Treated me with condescension and continually said it didn't make any sense. Said I had to do what he said, or else. Didn't believe the side effects I related and couldn't recognize heart burn was causing my " heart pain".
