I had 4 bypasses in 2009 and within the last year have seen Dr. Paixao several time for various problems. I highly recommend him.His staff is also very helpful.

He was rude and demeaning. He took a ridiculous amount of time to read my tests, made the wrong referrals which made my process take longer, laughed at me when I explained my symptoms, and tried to diagnose me before I even finished talking. The heart monitor he prescribed to me did not work right...more
