Several years ago I was hospitalized for a catherization procedure. After the procedure I was contacted by my cardiologist who advised me I had severe blockage, and nothing could be done. Needless to say my family and I were devastated. We decided to get a second opinion and contacted Dr. Nanavati at his office by phone. The office was closed as it was after business hours, but Dr. Nanavati answered the phone, Dr. Nanavati responded to the hospital, not my family, pulled a chair up to my bed, and when told of my results of my catherization and cardiologist opinion , stated, “that’s not true there is something we can do,” Dr. Nanavati spent 30 minutes with me and my family, explaining about medications that could improve my condition. He also contacted San Francisco University to set me up for a heart transplant if necessary after several visits to San Francisco my condition had improved so much due to the medications. Dr. Nanavati had prescribed I no longer qualified for the transplant. Since that time I have been under Dr. Nanavati’s care with positive results. Dr. Nanavati is a well-qualified , caring , accessible cardiologist.. His most important asset is he will listen to his patients.
The doctor’s compassion and care is far in excess of anything I’ve experienced. The doctor’s compassion and care is far in excess of anything I’ve experienced before I put my life in his hands and he did not disappoint thank you!
