Dr. Doraiswamy is one of the most impressive doctors I've met since moving to Tucson two years ago. He is very straight forward, explained my condition and my options. He set up procedures quickly to get to the bottom of my issues. He e listened to me carefully allowing me to be an active participant in my healthcare. Dr. W also has a great sense of humor.

Both my Wife an I are a patient of Dr. Doraiswamy and he is an outstanding Psysician. His manor and empathy for the patient is extraordinary. He is everything our previous cardiologist was NOT.
