Outstanding Cardioligist. Follow up to a hospital stay for surgery. Had some cardiac issues and Dr. Haitus was at the hospital every day and was on the phone to hospital staff at all hours of the night. I would highly recommend!

I am so thankful that Dr. Haitas and his group of nurses come to Manchester to see his patients. I think he has too many patients to see in a one day's time.

My appointment was last Tuesday and I was able to have a very good visit without having to leave my home. For that, I am very grateful. Dr. Haitas has been my Cardiologists for over 25 years. I have the greatest respect for him as a competent, highly skilled, knowledgeable, caring and compassionate professional. He takes a great interest in his patients and communicates health status with recommendations for a healthy life style. In this communication, he gives me confidence that even at my age of 82, I am capable of choosing options to improve and sustain my quality of life. Over the years, I have developed a level of comfort knowing that I can depend on him to provide excellent care and good advice. I am happy to recommend him to my friends as an outstanding physician.

I have had the privilege of having Dr. Haitas as my cardiac physician since April of 2001. He has always been caring, considerate, patient, and taken care of all my needs. My visits are never rushed and time is taken to answer my questions/concerns. Suppose what impresses me the most is his ability to make a decision promptly and follow with treatment he deems necessary. His entire staff is knowledgeable, personable, and ready to answer any question.
