Review of Dr. Pastore

- in Tampa , FL |

Dr Pastore saved my life. Other physicians ignored my symptoms. Dr Pastore listened and identified what was going on. After going to the Cath Lab and Dr Pastore placing 2 stents, I am on the road to recovery. Dr Pastore is very direct. I appreciate that.

Review of Dr. Pastore

-Trinity |

Dr. Pastore saved my mothers life! After bringing her to the ER three days ago and numerous tests being ordered and coming back normal, he never gave up....continued with more testing and finally decided to do a Cath that showed her erosion! An erosion that could have ruptured. They call these the "silent killer" in young adults. Dr. Pastore told me it was the best thing bringing her in when I did. Mom feels great! She hasn't felt this good in years. Thank you Dr. Pastore.

I used to love Dr Pastore, but every time I call his office with some real problems or any other reason, his office is closed. If you leaves message, it is not returned. I’ve even wondered if he closed, is I’ll, family problems? Dr. P. Please let us know what is going on.

When comes to schedule they're very poor. They change my appointment 3 time when I have a serious problem with my heart.

Review of Dr. Makati

-Tampa, FL |

Doctor Kevin Makati is an awesome cardiologist!! He listens to your concerns, answers all your questions and tells you about the ablation procedure, from mapping the ablation with GPS so he knows exactly where the ablation will be done.

Review of Dr. Pastore

-Odessa, FL |

Be warned of Dr. Pastore. He orders testing procedures performed in his office (and out- patient) that are not always needed. I have some very minor issues, and he recommended heart catheterization!! He wouldn't answer questions when asked and just kept saying the same evasive things it was like he was on the clock and ready to get to his next patient. He tries to push and scare you into agreeing to unneeded tests at even greater expense (to his benefit, of course) without any answers.

Review of Dr. Pastore

- in Palmetto, FL |

I believe i would not be here today, had I not seen Dr. Pastore. I had seen 7 other cardiologist, the past 6 years, testing good on several stress tests. None of the other Drs would listen to me when i explained to them I do not have classic symptoms. I can not tolerate statins, and in fact the last cardiologist told me he couldn't do anything for me. Dr. Pastore was the first to listen to me and believed me when I stated how bad I felt. He found 5 arteries almost totally clogged. 6/29/16

Review of Dr. Pastore

- in Spring Hill, FL |

Wouldn't recommend this doctor. He was careless during outpatient procedure, ended up being admitted for complications. My questions were not answered, was actually told "don't worry about it". Terrible bedside manner, he was pretty much in the doorway ready to sprint out to a different patient while talking to me.
