Thats a matter of opinion. I had a horrible experience there. He refused to se me without a co-pay and when i gave it to him, he lost my chart. Oh, but he 'remembered' my chart and i was fine even tho two weeks earlier there was something abnormal with my ekg.

I personally never plan to step foot in that building again. A lot of people swear by him tho. Not the case with me.

Lot of people have died cause of him, he's only qualified to do certain test, if testing is abnormal patients have to be sent to Lexington, but he doesn't like to do that. To bad for the patients that swear by him, something might could be done to help them.

There is a new cardiologist at the hospital, Dr. Patil. He seems very knowledgeable. I plan on seeing him in the future myself. Might be best if u can't travel far.

he tried this trick on me
had me go in and sit down with the nurse, to have all my info
and she starts explaining heart caths to me out of the blue
so i ask her what shes telling me and she says, i was pre-op for a heart cath
i was pretty surprised about this, since i HAD NOT had my stress test yet

so, you can just walk into a doctors office off the street and the nurse will tell you that you are pre op for a heart cath
HOW, JUST BY LOOKING AT YOU?
WOW, i dont need a degree to say something is up with that.....
i mean most doctors first take a bp
maybe they weigh you or get a medical history
before they decide to do surgery on you
but maybe chandreshaker is one of them psychic doctors

Yeah He may be, but how the heck do u get in and see him? I have called for an appointment 4 times and I always get voicemail of front desk in ARH clinic. I personally like to speak to a person when I make an appointment! Those of you that talk about Dr. Chandrashekar being a heart cath maniac, where did you get your medical or nursing degrees. It is not unheard of to have a heart cath without a stress test. If I was having chest pain or something wrong with my EKG I would want them to do whatever is best for me! And of coarse there is the classic argument of the wait at MT Heart Center! Obviously those who say that have never been to MT. Comp! I would wait at the Mt. Heart Center ten times over as to have to wait at Mt. Comp. It is at least pleasant there!
