"Dr. Sujith has been my husband's cardiologist for several years. When I was referred to a different cardiologist I requested to be referred to him instead. Luckily Dr. Sujith took me as a new patient. He is outstanding and I have the upmost confidence in him."

"Again, my new doctor exceeded any previous doctor I have seen in the practice. Unlike previous doctors (one foced me to initiate a formal complaint) my new doctor was the polar opposite. While having my condition for nearly all my life, this was the first thorough interaction where I felt comfortable that I as in VERY capable hands, but also explained all the risks, management, and a very clear long-term treatment plan."
