I have had 2 stress tests and 1 nuclear stress test I have had 2 stents done in San Diego at UCSD by Dr Palakodeti and his team. I will be going back to UCSD next week for the Dr to do a third Angiogram because of some new issues. The Doctors team and staff are always very friendly. When I had some BP issues i called the office and a nurse was put on the phone with me. Office visits wait time is always between 5 to 20 minutes. I cannot imagine seeing a different Cardiologist
