Dr. Vismara has been explaining things about every test or procedure he done. He's patient with me when I have questions or explain what's going on He saved me from open Heart surgery when I had a Heart attack and placed stents in me.
Does not explain anything and barely spends time with patient.
Dr Vismara explained everything about the procedure for a aortic valve replacement. He never made me feel rushed and he answered all my questions. I felt very comfortable having this group perform my valve replacement
He was my Dr. in Lafayette, Louisiana at UMC now is it is UHC. He took very good care of me when he was their if it wasn't for him i probably would not be here today. He never gave up on me and i think him very much for that. He is a very good Dr. and i wish he was still my Dr. and I know that were he is at now he is taking very good care of all of his patients.
He was courteous and professional in every way. In the cath lab he took his time to check it all. Then he called my Doctor and discussed what he had learned from the cath. After the cath, he met with my family and left them with full knowledge of what he had found. He did the cath through the arm.
Dr MacNavin is my gift God. He treats me like he wants his mother to be trated. I feel his genuine love as he cares for as a person not a number on the clipboard. I go through too much these days thats why he's highly appreciated!!
Dr Businaro is a wonderful doctor. She listens before deciding a course of treatment. She is always on time and does not rush out of the room. She has managed my husbands blood pressure and medications for that. She also manages my pacemaker. I have no hesitation in recommending her to my friends.
Dr Bell is an excellent cardiologist. He is also very compassionate and cares for his patients. I highly recommend him.
Wowwwwwwww. That's it. One word. Dr. Bell is phenomenal. I've been to visit him twice now and although I've not had a heart attack I am 59 yrs old and have recently recognized symptoms of potential heart malfunction. Dr. Bell put me at ease immediately as his vast knowledge and compassion had me thinking I was his most important appointment. Let me close in saying if I'm ever in need of anything further than monitoring symptoms - DR. BELL IS MY CHOICE FOR HEART HEALTH CARE. Thanks Dr Bell
Loved the care I received from Dr. Pineda, over the last year they have changed their operations and i havnet seen him. The Nurse seems to panic easy and applies unwanted tests and medications. Not happy with that.
Best Physician ever. Highly recommend.
Did a cardiac cath and put in stents, extremely pleased with expertise, care, and concern. Highly recommend him and associates.
Great Doctor
I would recommend Dr. McCann to anyone you has congestive heart failure. He was my dad's doctor and was just so wonderful with him and my dad trusted him. Dr. McCann is very confident, caring and has great bedside manner. He took the time to discuss the situation with the family. When my dad past away he even sent us a handwritten person condolence card. I'm thankful to Dr. McCann for giving us additional time with our dad.
My husband and I have been patients with Dr. Feldman for years. Until the recent change we were very satisfied. Once they moved to Palmetto Health things changed drastically, for the worse. I am so sorry because I respect Dr. Feldman but the quality of care, not only in his staff, but in his care as well has detreated for some reason. I have made a very hard decision in moving to another practice. Barb Zoller
Had heart cath 2 years ago through the wrist. Care and outcome were excellent.
In my opinion, there is none better than Dr Bell. He is compassionate and has a wonderful bedside mannerism. After My illness in 2004, I was asked who I wanted to be my Heart Doctor. I responded that I wanted someone who would take time with me, tell me in layman's terms what was going on and also someone who is compassionate. The nurse responded, "Well you want Dr. Bell". He was assigned my doctor and still is. I will continue seeing him as long as I am alive.
Great patient rapport, excellent surgeon, overall nice guy
My appointment was scheduled quickly and my in office wait was just a few minutes. Dr. Feldman spent time asking questions and fully getting to know me. I appreciated this. He reassured me and I felt scheduled appropriate tests to ensure the health of my heart. I left feeling heard and that I was in capable hands.
Dr Feldman did an ICD implant placement surgery utilizing the Medtronic Single Lead ICD in May 2016 with great results. Pre op / surgery/ post op was excellent. Healing fast with no bruises. She was thorough in her explanation which gave me confidence in having the procedure done. I would highly recommend her for any surgical procedure.
I am beyond impressed by Dr. John K. Bough. He was very professional and also very kind, took time to talk to me regarding my concerns which made my visit very comfortable. Very first time had Heart Cath procedure done and Dr. John is truly an expert.
Have already recommended Dr. Hewett to others.
Dr. Feldman is very knowledgeable and really listens. I have been a patient of hers for at least 20 years and she has taken excellent care of me. Hope to have her for another 20! I highly recommend her.
Dr Pineda was terrific. He saw how nervous I was prior to my heart procedure so first thing he did was to put me at ease. He explained the entire procedure to me and as I was awake during it he spoke to me to keep me calm. If you are having any chest pain issues this it the doctor to see. Thank you Dr Pineda!
Awesome! Totally feel comfortable with Dr Hewitt as my cardiologist. With my RN background, this guy is tops.
