Dr. Kaustubha D. Patil was great!! My cardiologist advised that I see an electrophysiologist. Just as my cardiologist shared, all NM Cardiologists specializing in electrophysiology of the heart are excellent and it was difficult to select one of the many at NM. I chose Dr. Patil after meeting him via his video profile. Dr. Patil's manner and communication style are both professional and warm. I had a lot of questions about my recent tests. Dr. Patil took his time answering my questions putting my mind at ease with respect to my condition. I'm very confident that my cardiac health is being maintained by competent and caring cardiologists such as Dr, Patil.
