Quite frankly, I was astonished with the entire appointment. Dr Kapadia was simply outstanding! He spent the time to make sure all of my questions were answered and he completely explained my diagnosis. So much better and thoroughly then any experience I have had before. What I really appreciated was he took the time to understand me as an individual and recommended lifestyle changes I would never get from my prior Cardiologist. I felt blessed to have the time with him.

Even though it is costly for me to travel to the Cleveland Clinic the entire experience was great. Please note that the Mayo Clinic is only 80 miles away from where I live so that gives you a little idea that I came to Cleveland Clinic instead of Mayo because of my understanding that the Cleveland Clinic was the best provider for cardiac care. The care was excellent!
