Dr. Manyam is amazing. I can't say enough about him as a person or a doctor. He helped my wife get rid and deal with her abnormal heart rhythm. We felt comfortable throughout the whole process and gave us a way to get in touch with his team if needed. He is an excellent doctor who has been very well trained, and who also trains many other physicians throughout the world.David in Lynnville, TN
I would recommend Dr. Manyam to everyone that has a need for heart surgery. He took great care of me during my surgery and did an outstanding job. He is a great doctor and Chattanooga is very fortunate to have him here.Bettye L. Lane in Chattanooga, TN
Dr. Manyam and his team were the cardiologists who attended to me at Erlanger when I had a minor heart attack. They are the best of the best. They were attentive, explained everything in detail, and were very caring. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Manyam and his team.Charles Totherow in Chattanooga, TN
