Dr. Sawlani was very pleasant, knowledgeable and interested in me and my case. He did recommend open heart surgery which I was not expecting. I was a little shocked and may not have been able to ask the right questions. But he did recommend. I seek a second opinion, which is what I needed!

March 23, 2020 7:53 AM

I had to wait more than an hour in a very crowded waiting room. The receptionist had no idea who Dr. Sawlani's partner was. I think they have too many doctors to represent.
