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.

Absolutely one of the best experiences I've ever had at a medical appointment. Noone was ahead of me, so he got me in early. Took the time to get to know me and my history before anything. Took his time, but did not ask me to submit to anything unnecessary. I would not hesitate recommending Dr. Sanai.
