I had been a patient of Dr. Ghitis since 2016 after my angioplasty and he is a great and thorough doctor. He talks and listens to his patient and ask question and answer question as well. The problem to improve is for the waiting during appointments. This last appt. was for a long over an hour wait. Most patient try to come in early so the waiting is not too long but still have to wait long to be called in. I wish they can improve that part as patients get impatient about the wait. I wish they stick to the appointment time they give to the patient. Thanks.

My visit was way beyond satisfactory. I was made to feel welcomed and that the staff was ready to help me in whatever way I needed to be helped. The ladies that took my info were professional and personable, made me feel I was in the right place. I have NO doubt I upgraded my Cardio Doc with Dr. Ghitis. I have full confidence I am in good hands. My previous Primary Dr. Pereria, first floor to the right as you enter the building, referred me, then new doc at Cano followed my request to see Dr. Ghitis with a referral. I worked in the Behavioral Health field and know good doctoring when I see it. I am in good hands!

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.
