I would tend to agree with the Dr. Swarup's lack of warm and cozy bed side manner. However, his expertise as a surgeon, attention to all details and sense of urgency has earned him my best possible rating. I underwent surgery last week, and I am not only feeling great and back to work, both entry incisions have healed up and the scares are already fading. As a professional woman I prefer candor and skill to being coddled.

Horrible staff! And horrible bed side manner! I wish I had never had the procedure done as it caused more problems for me. I WILL NEVER go back to the AZ Heart rhythm center

EXCELLENT DOCTOR. My adult son had a heart problem that another doctor told us he would not touch. After an exam by Dr. Swarup he told us he feels confident that he can fix it. He does over 200 of these procedures each year. Everything went extremely well. This doctor saved our son from an abnormal life. He is now extremely healthy and very active physically. He is a god's sent.
