I just felt that he was a bit tunnel vision. He was concerned about his speciality and not the whole person.
Patient | February 20, 2018

I just had a checkup & every thing went very well.
Patient | February 2, 2018

Very patient and understanding.
Patient | January 24, 2018

Great doctor! I respect & trust him.
Patient | January 23, 2018

Dr. Irani is what everyone should have the right to expect in an MD.
Patient | January 16, 2018

I really like Dr. Irani as a physician, but his time management and wait time is very bad.
Patient | December 25, 2017

Very good.
Patient | September 25, 2017

I have been seeing Dr. Irani since my open heart surgery in 2010. I have found Dr. Irani to always be the best cardiologist I could ever hope for.

Dr. Irani is, without question, one of the best doctors I have ever seen for treatment of any kind. I have recommended him to others. One person moving to Nashville will contact him soon to sent up a new appointment. I have total confidence in Dr. Irani's ability as a cardiologist and appreciate his care and concern for my physical well being. He is very easy to communicate with and very easy to access if I have a question which arises between appointments.
Patient | July 25, 2017

Very good provider.

Always look forward to my visits because I know dr will be nice & easy to talk to.
Patient | April 13, 2017

Drove 2 1/2-3 hrs for this app. only to have maybe 7 min. with care provider. I think my expectations of Vanderbilt were bigger than the actual visit.
Patient | April 11, 2017
