I have a very good opinion of Dr. Ghitis. He really takes a lot of interest in what you are telling him and his advice always makes a lot of sense. If you would go to see him, you would feel the way I do. I consider myself lucky to have been able to have Dr. Ghitis as my cardiologist.

Has been my cardiovascular Doctor foe over 30 years. Excellent Doctor! I had a heart attack 1 year ago. Dr. Ghitis happened to be in the emergency operating room, and saved my life.
