Dr. Doshi was very caring and positive. It was my first time in his care and he made me feel comforfortable. I feel that it is very important to make a person(patient) feel at ease when visiting a doctor, especially when you are dealing with health issues. Dr. Doshi did just that, he was sensitive to my needs and made me feel at ease. He was very knowledgable, he answered all of my questions clearly.

He is a fabulous doctor, but his front office is killing his reputation - the reception and ALL of the medical tech need training to be friendly and have courteous interaction with the patients. They are cold and directive instead of courteous and friendly. They will check you in on time and put you in a medical room - no friendly conversation, lack of eye contact and uncaring. The wait in the room is always too long before the doctor arrives. I have talked to Dr Doshi about this. My appointment times always get changed at the last minute. His scheduling person can be friendly or rude, depending on the day and mood - If I treated my clients like this, I would be fired! I need to be clear - I really like Dr Doshi. He is a fabulous Doctor and he fixed my heart - but it is very tough to go to his office for an appointment. And, I don't think I can recommend him without telling them about the office situation.

Nine years ago my cardiologist ( not a surgeon) determined that I was in need of a pacemaker. She made arrangements with Dr. Doshi to do the surgery. His office has monitored the device since it was implanted. They determined that I was in need of a new one and all of the arrangements were made through his office. I have always been very pleased with his office services.
