Rahul Malhotra, M.D., F.A.C.C., F.S.C.A.I. has more than 25 years of experience in cardiovascular medicine with expertise in advanced/complex coronary intervention, carotid artery, deep vein thrombosis management, peripheral vascular intervention and treatment of varicose veins.

This allows patients to get up and walk much sooner, and in randomized clinical studies, has shown a reduction in potentially life-threatening bleeding, particularly in women. Patients are usually in and out of the hospital the same day, within hours of the procedure.

He has been extensively involved in ground-breaking clinical research. Currently he is involved in 17 clinical trials.

I had a good experience as usual. Dr. Malhotra was delayed, but due to an emergency. No problem at all for me.

The nurse who called me in to see the Dr. never spoke to me. She just led the way and nodded to get on the scale and motioned for me to follow her. A "Hi, Stella, how are you today?" would have been a nice greeting. It seemed like a "cold" reception.

Was not expecting a "care provider". He was new to me and my first thought was that the Dr. assigned me to someone else until it was explained that the Dr. was there and he would come in to say "Hi" to me. My second visit with the provider he explained when he came in that he was working with the Dr.

I arrived early fully expecting to wait till my appointment time. However was registered quickly and taken in for my appointment based on "first come, first serve". I appreciated that but was not expecting it.

My reason for not recommending is that the parking is horrendous and when you need a walker to reach the office it is sometimes a major effort. There is not ample provision for handicapped access to the building.
