We used him twice and the last time he did an ablation on my husband, he assured us all went well. It turns out that this last ablation made my husbands afib persistent, and his quality of life is non-existent.

Dr. Betensky is excellent in all areas. He has even called me on weekends. He spends as much time as you need to discuss your situation. The only problem is making and keeping appointments. He is so busy and in such high demand he only schedules office appointments one day a week. Unless there is a serious issue be prepared to reschedule your visits.

My husband had surgery Monday ar Sarasota Memorial. He never can out to talk to us. The nurse tried 3 times to get him to come out to see us he was busy. Dr Nallari gave us a recommendation for him. I as his wife have never been treated like this by any Dr. His office had the audacity to call today and said he talked to us. HE NEVER DID. VERY ANGRY

I suffered a severe episode of Atrial Fib after kidney surgery. Dr. Betensky saved my life. I cannot impress upon one enough how competent and compassionate this physician is. He is a great addition to our medical community. I am a retired physician. I know excellence when I see it.
