Dr. Sanai was hands down one of the best doctors I’ve seen for any reason. I was very nervous about seeing a cardiologist, but Dr. Sanai’s easy-going style and bedside manner really made the experience comforting. He is extremely knowledgeable, logical, and responsive. Not only does he take the time to explain what’s going on with you when you meet with him in person, but he’s also willing to communicate with you over email.

Honestly, I wish that he was my PCP. This doctor is amazing and really takes his time to understand his patients and to really know them. He is not just about cranking out the patients, but about building a relationship with his patients and making sure they know that they are safe in his hands, not because they are paying him, but because he truly cares about them and their concerns. He doesn't rush you out, but intently listens and makes sure he has a clear understanding of your concerns before making any suggestions. I very highly recommend him to anyone looking for a cardiologist. Amazing doctor!!

Dr. Sanai is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. He seemed to genuinely care about me and to get to know me. He also profusely apologized for having me wait 10 minutes past my appointment time. He has a tremendous bedside manner and was very comforting and knowledgeable. I'm coming back for a follow-up and he told his receptionist not to charge me a co-pay next time because I had to wait 10 minutes in this visit. I've never had a doctor do that before! I would definitely recommend Dr. Sanai and his office.

Dr. Sanai has to be one of the best doctors I've ever seen. Granted, my problem wasn't very serious (making sure the heart palpitations I had were nothing more serious,) but I was completely impressed by his bedside manner. He was funny, engaging and genuinely cared. He didn't overprescribe procedures I didn't actually need. He took the time to explain to me what was going on in my body. He strongly encouraged me to email him next time before making a trip down to his office. Also, his assistant was funny and put me at ease. Another note - The wait time was approximately five minutes.

Dr. Sanai is the doctor I've been looking for. I had a heart attack eight months ago, and finally found a doctor who is concerned about me and my case, and finding the best path and treatment for me instead of applying generic fixes.

Dr. Sanai is the best, from his greeting, to his professional interaction with the patient and his follow- up! He is the epitome of what today's provider should be striving for, which is a high level of quality care! This was my first visit with him and I immediately felt comfortable and cared for! He is most humbled, great energy and is knowledgeable and efficient! These attributes can be lacking amongst many healthcare providers who seem overworked, overbooked with no bedside manner! You will not find this in Dr. Sanai! I do my research and I only see the best.. He will not disappoint!

I knew of Dr. Sanai briefly through referrals I receive from him at the office I work in but upon reading the reviews I felt a bit more assured that I'd have a pleasant visit. Although the parking was a bit frustrating just because of the traffic entering and exiting, the garage staff was more than organized in getting everyone taken care of expeditiously. Front office staff was pleasant and professional. Dr. Sanai came out to greet me and take me back shortly after my 10-15 minute check-in. He apologized for the wait stating that he decided to take back his patient after me since I arrived late which was perfectly understandable! He is very personable, professional and makes you feel at ease during your visit. If I ever need to visit a cardio again, I'd definitely return!

Dr Sanai was very professional and yet super friendly. He was very honest and trustworthy and made me feel like I was in good hands. He explained to me how in his opinion, based on my symptoms, EKG, initial test results, and given my young age and overall health, I really didn't need additional testing/treatment. He gave me very helful recommendations to help with my symptoms. He also told me he would be willing to do additional examinations if I needed more reassurance and peace of mind, but that he didn't think they were necessary at this point. I totally trusted him and didn't put myself through unnecessary radiation and examination. I love it when doctors treat you like a human being and not a source for making more money. I hope I never have to see a heart doctor again but if I do, I would definitely come back to Dr Sanai.
