I liked Dr Shetty a lot. Very easy to talk to, very knowledgeable, felt very comfortable with how she explained everything., & how she asked me if I had any questions for her. Hope she continues to stay on as the adult congenital doctor.

Dr. Shetty was very friendly. She put us at ease. She read the test results right away and let us know the results during the appointment; I was glad I did not have to wait for results.

Excellent. I am the mother of the special needs heart patient that the survey is based around. Dr. Shetty took extra time to go into detail of the heart to explain the ultra sound with a plastic heart example. She is very amazing and spends quality fime with my son on his heart appointments.

it was a pleasant experience

The only concern I had was the wait time. My appt. was at 11:30 AM. The nurse took us in right away. 2 different nurses came in and did 2 tests that were done by 12:15 PM. Then, we had to officially wait for Dr. Shetty. She did not come in the exam room until well over 1 PM. Our official meeting ended in 15-20 min. My 7 yr. old was getting upset because she was very hungry. I just think the wait time should be reduced.

Dr. Shetty is a great person and doctor. She is my daughter's (12 yrs.) cardiologist and always talks to her in a way my daughter can understand. She's patient and always willing to listen to my 12 year old's concerns.
