It was a great experience! Dr. Sanai was most caring, kind and polite, who ran some diagnostic tests which resulted in my feeling much less apprehensive than when I first went it. This made me feel much better than I expected. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a great cardiologist!

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 Reza is so cool and professional and personable. I really had a good appointment. He was clear about my options and helped me to see what they were, and how I might continue into the future. So, I had a very good appointment. I would highly recommend Reza to anyone who is in need of a solid cardiologist and I would recommend him highly.

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.

Literally the best Dr. around. Been going to Dr. Sanai for close to two years now. Always quick to see you (I waited 15 seconds today, not an exaggeration). Always very honest and gives you well thought out and informed road map to success. On the younger side and being 30 I appreciate his approach and ability to connect with people my age. He doesn't talk down to you and always has a smile on his face as he takes a family approach to each person instead of viewing you as another appointment/patient. Couldn't recommend him more.
