excellent experience first time visit

The staff was wonderful, helpful, and welcoming. Visiting a Cardiologist can be scary and they made me feel very at ease and comfortable from the second I walked into the office. I barely got to sit down and I was called back to the exam room. The assistant was wonderful, joking and made me feel very at ease. Dr. Tummalapalli came in and was great! He listened to me, asked questions and made sure when I left I felt ok about the visit. I would recommend this group to anyone, anytime.

Dr. Tummalapalli has been an excellent cardiologist for me. We discussed some concerns I have had with running a marathon this fall and he helped ease my concerns and we came up with a plan for allowing me to try it.
