Review of Dr. Taikowski


My experiences with Dr. Taikowski have for the most part been quite satisfactory. This last time was an enigma. His technician recorded my ECG, and when the doctor read the printout, he turned to me and told me that my paroxysmal Afib had become full blown Afib. And that was it. I am a retired healthcare professional, and I guess he said no more because he assumed that I would do my own investigation. Still, for more than a day I labored over his lack of discussion with me.

Review of Dr. Kunkes


Dr Kunkis has been my cardiologist for over a year now. His office staff which include Alicia, Debbie, Gail, Denise, who fitted me with the event monitor and Nah who performed the Echo test. This group is excellent and I would recommend them highly.Al Jannotta

Review of Dr. Fishman


This man is my hero. He literally saved my husband's life. We had met him as a new patient the day before my husband had a major cardiac event. We loved him that day for his clear explanation of his condition. He happened to be the leader of the trauma team the next day when we arrived via ambulance at Bridgeport Hospital. He worked tirelessly to bring him back to me that day. He again showed unbelievable compassion, and has been readily available via message to answer my every question.

Review of Dr. Winslow


I have a very rare and complex case with most of my specialists being out of state which is tough when I get sudden cardiac symptoms. Dr. Winslow caught onto my case right away and came up with a good game plan. Very friendly and answered my questions and explained himself well. Totally recommend Dr. Winslow. ????

Review of Dr. Casale

- in Weston, CT |

Dr Casale leaves plenty of time to discuss all of your questions and you never feel as though she were in a hurry to see the next patient. She is thorough, attentive, has a great manner and provides reassurance.

Review of Dr. Taikowski

- in Shelon, CT |

Dr. Taikowski is always kind, thoughtful, helpful, and most of all very knowledgeable. During an office visit he takes the time to answer questions. He came into the hospital room before and after the operation to make sure I knew what was happening, results, and recovery information. Hope you never need a cardiologist, but if you do he’s the best.

Review of Dr. Casale

- |

DR. Linda R Casale is only good on paper. My first visit with her I waited an hour to see her for her to give me 10 minutes of her time and dismiss what was going on with me. She insisted that there was nothing wrong with my heart and had no idea why I was passing out and fainting and that it was nothing She did order some tests. I started the process of the testing and when results came she never called to explain what was going on and it took many phone calls to get anyone to respond as it’s

Review of Dr. Chiravuri

- in Newtown, CT |

Di. Chiravuri is not only excellent surgeon, he has a unique level of empathy for his individual patients. He explains things, offers suggestions and gives referrals when needed. He also tells the hard truth, when asked. What a pleasure to deal with a high capable, savvy and caring physician.
