Dr. Jost was very professional and we feel like we are in the best possible hands for our care. His accent is thick but you can tell he cares about his patients and knows what he is doing! His staff was absolutely top notch.

I was thoroughly impressed with my experience at South West Cardiovascular. The staff was warm and professional and Dr. Jost is extremely experienced and good at what he does. I would recommend his services to others.

Dr. Jost's bedside manner was the best I'd ever experienced, he is truly the best doctor in mesa! The staff were timely and the rooms were clean. The only bad thing was the water fountain not working!
in Scottsdale, AZ |
He treated my husband when he became Ill. He persuaded him to go to the hospital he was affiliated with, he even drove him. Scottsdale Hospital was 5 minutes away and his hospital was a good thirty minutes or more. In this case it may have been the difference between him living or his death. By the time I got to the hospital I never had time to speak to my husband again.

To my knowledge he is the kindest and most knowledgeable heart doctor I have been to.Made me feel like a VIP and took time to listen to me.
in Tempe, AZ |
Dr. Jost is an outstanding doctor. He is an excellent cardiologist, always updating his knowledge and skills, has built a comprehensive office with cardiac stress testing, blood collection, & ultrasound imaging to serve his patients with efficiency & less stress and fewer appointments. He also is a real doctor and a great diagnostician, by which I mean his Swiss & US training have given him a comprehensive understanding of the human body. He is able to identify cardiac issues and others.
