Dr. Irani has been my cardiologist since my open-heart surgery and I trust him completely.

Dr. Irani is the best.
Patient | September 5, 2018

I think Dr. Irani is a nice person, but I have qualms. I had open heart surgery on April 18 and neither Dr. Irani (or Dr. Kaiser, the surgeon) were in contact - as in first person contact. I didn't speak to Dr. Irani until this appointment; I had to ask the staff at Dr. Kaiser's office if they could ask him to contact me about an abnormal reaction following the surgery. I don't think this is normal or acceptable. If I made all of the decisions regarding VU care, when a patient has surgery, the doctors would call shortly after the surgery to check in. Maybe when I got home, or a week later, but doctors shouldn't have to be asked to call their patient to see how the patient is doing. That would change if I made the decisions.

Everything about this visit was excellent.
Patient | June 17, 2018

Dr. Irani has been, over a decade, a splendid cardiologist.
Patient | May 28, 2018

I was randomly assigned Dr. Irani from a referral by my primary care. I am very happy with him and feel like he's thorough and an excellent listener.
Patient | May 14, 2018

Very good.
Patient | April 3, 2018

Patient | March 30, 2018

Love this dr.
Patient | March 25, 2018

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.
