Doc Swarup explained in detail how to qualify and apply for the admission to the "Amulet"test program . Randomly a computer selects the patient's participation by having either the Amulet inserted in the LAA or be on the Eliquis bShow morelood thinner (forever). I expressed my reluctance to be on a test program sponsored by a pharmaceutical co. Also Doc informed me that the info on the websites of Watchman and Amulet re. tissue regeneration that will cover the left atrium appendage in 45 days and therefore eliminates a long term blood thinner. He stated that's not true, which led me to believe that a blood thinner is a necessity forever after the the Amulet insertion. I thought about it and at this point decline to apply for the test program and will not take the Eliquis but instead depend on my intake of natural blood thinners contained in some of the vitamins I take.

I'm still here. Dr. Swarup and his staff very caring. Also, they have conventient office visits in other places like Gilbert.
Staff exceptional. No long waiting timr
Staff is very friendly. He tends to run late, but trying to come across town can do that to you. Took the time to explain what is going on with my shortness of breath and my heart.
Great staff and Dr. Swarup is very knowledgeable and professional glad I have him for my heart doctor
Questions and my concerns were taken care of by the Dr and his staff
Everyone was professional, and kind.
I have been under the care of Dr. Swarup since 2010 after having a stroke. He has for 13 years shown me true attention and care for me during many issues with my heart. I consider Dr. Swarup to be the one and only to take care of me.
Great experience although it’s hard to be unhealthy, I have always been 100% healthy and I am a nurse practitioner so that makes it even harder. Everyone at the office is great, Dr. Swarup is amazing.

My visitation went as planned saw Dr. Swarpe, discussed the battery life of my heart pacer and my medication update, discharged with. 3 month appointment. Thanks to the staff too....
Dr. Swarup takes very good care of me. He's greatly improved my quality of life!
Prompt, professional service. Wait for service was not as long a waiting period compared to previous office visits.
Everything was explained and if I had questions they were answered. Exactly what I'd expect from a good Dr.
Professional, polite, caring
Nice to actually meet with Dr Swarup. He threw me off guard on the statins as my cholesterol was never questioned until 2021 & I didn’t realize my LDL should be that low. I will do a fasting blood test Monday morning. I have ordered Cholesterol MD supplement and will see how it works between now & my 3 month follow up. Judi
Everyone was polite and helpful. I had all my questions answered.
Staff attentive and professional. Dr Swarup spent the necessary time and answered all our questions.
Dr. Swarp definitely help's all of his patients. Change of my prescription and ask me if I wanted to participate in a new drug study and I said yes.
I waited in the exam room for an hour. Dr. Swarup spent time with me after he arrived,answered my questions and was clear with my options.
I waited an hour in the waiting room for my appointment. Then I went to the exam room and he came within 15 minutes. He reviewed my chart and talked about change in one med and when he wanted to see me again and what procedures would be done then. He got a phone call and he left. Time with him was about 15 minutes. He just seemed rushed. Overall I believe he is a very good physician and I trust his judgement. I would recommend him to my friends. The only negative thing about seeing him is having to wait in the waiting room for at least 30 minutes plus. Perhaps the wait is in scheduling.
Dr. Swarup answered my concerns and suggested some preventative ways to help my condition
Was pleasant had to wait quite a while but was a good visit
