Dr Lopez installed two stents in my right coronary artery at Fawcett Hospital, in Port Charlotte, fl. In doing so he blocked a side artery. Since that time I have suffered from heart attack symptom side affects that have had a significant negative impact on my lifestyle, i.e. no dancing, biking, etc Also, I spent two days plus at Fawcett and never had a visit from either Dr Lopez or any of his staff. I also don't know how long I froze my butt off in the operating room waiting for his "arrival"
Dr Lopez has been a great Dr for me. Excellent communicator and a very caring person. When I came to FL the MI Dr was not able to help me and Dr Lopez with all the appropriate testing and question was able to prescribe the correct medications to stabilize my heart and return me to an active life style that I love. I enjoy his personality and sense of humor, its an honor and pleasure to be his patient.
I had a pacemaker implanted in Dec by another Dr switched to Dr Cossu after talking with several friends. He made some changes to program and completely explained and answered all my questions. His staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. Left informed and satisfied.
This man knows his stuff I'm thankful I went to him I have PVC's if I listened to another Doc I would be taking beta blocker Dr Martinez was understanding and checked me out He wrote on a piece of paper that I was perfect and he could not fix me I still have it after two years on my fridge and I moved to Md Eating healthy and exercise is key Plus I take potassium Have not been bothered since!
Dr. Cossu is easily the most compassionate and caring physician I have ever seen. from my first visit with him I understood that he truly cares about his patients. He is totally involved with my care and has gone over and above to help me and to make sure I'm comfortable with the decisions we make together. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of cardiac care.
I was seen in March 2015 on an emergency basis. He was wonderful to me. I had to have s stress test and my cholesterol was very high. He put me on higher does of meds. Staff very nice. I am seeing him this March for my check up. Wonderful personality and very caring.

Dr. Martinez saved my Husbands life and we will be forever grateful to him! He went beyond the call of duty. Dr. Martinez is the most patient, kind and caring Doctor that we have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He is up to date on new life saving medications. We have referred several of our friends to him and they all feel the same. He is awesome! Patti and Tiny van Tonder

Provides thorough explanations and education of condition and treatments. Kind, level-headed.
I have been a patient of Dr. Martinez for the past nine years. I have found him to be a most patient, involved and caring physician. He has always involved me with his plans for me and has kept me informed at all times as to what is happening. He treats his patients with respect and as intelligent individuals. He is knowledgeable as to new techniques and is up to date with new medicines. He really cares about his patients. I have never felt rushed during my appointments.
Recommended serious procedure that was not needed without further testing.
