I have been going to Dr. Haitas for 14 years and would not consider going anywhere but Centennial. He and his staff are genuinely considerate and professional every time I have been there . I am thankful that I found them when I moved here from West Tennessee. I would recommend Dr. Haitas to any one who has any kind of heart issues......

I have found Dr. Haitus completely knowledgeable and professionally current on matters of cardiology. While we all try to research a quality person for our medical needs, I discovered Dr. Haitus knows what he is talking about, listens to the patients concerns and can evaluate a course of action. I am experiencing a better quality of life today as a result of Dr. Haitus. I also discovered if I have questions or have read about different procedures, the doctor will listen and engage in a meaningful discussion. I first saw him in my 50's, I am now in my early 70's. I experienced afib and a TIA. The doctor addressed those issues. I now see him twice a year for a routine check up.

I recently needed the service of a cardiac specialist. Dr.Haitas agreed to accept me as a patient. He listens to what I have concerns about. His staff is excellent. My favorite is his nurse Kelly who makes sure she reinforces the plan of care he has setup for you.

Dr. Haitas is not only a superb medical doctor, but is also a concerned, very intelligent, highly motivated human being. I have had several contacts with him, one when I did not know him at all but he diagnosed an arterial condition that I had -- it was life-threatening - and then direct me to one of the few surgeons who could operate on a malady of this complexity. Then I actually met Dr. Haitas in person when I started to have the heart problems of an ancient person (which I am) and he took the immediate steps to minimize a stroke and then to repair an afib condition. All was successful and he and I are presently staying in touch on the afib problem because it tends to come back. In all this Dr. Haitas is a concerned human being. And I appreciate that part of him as much as his knowledge of my heart problems. I've never known or had a better physician.

I can't say enough about this thoughtful and excellent doctor. I feel he saved my life six years ago by taking the lead in identifying potential problems BEFORE I had a heart event. If you are seeking a heart doctor who will take time and concern for you as if you were his only patient, I recommend him highly. Signed, 20 year patient.

Dr. Haitas is the quintessential caring person and physician. I could wax poetic about his education, his ability--and inclination--to listen, his diagnostic and surgical skills, etc. But the most important thing I can share with you is the following: He saved my life.
