Dr. Dharan is the most compassionate and empathetic physician I have had the pleasure to work with. His caring manner and clear explanations were extremely reassuring to me and my family as we had to decide between a stent or bypass procedure. I chose the bypass and am completely confident it was the right choice. Mine and my family’s impression of Dr. Dharan was echoed by ALL of the nurses and staff at CCU in John Muir, who said I was lucky he was my cardiologist/surgeon.
