My hubby was referred to Dr. Centafont from a friend back in Dec 2018. Easy making an appt, dr listened to both of us over hubby's concerns. This is the first time a dr has spent over 30 mins in consultation with us. His heart was tested for A-fib to see how well/poorly his heart was operating in Dec 2018, which was at 22%. Over the next few months, Dr. changed 3 of his prescriptions (which no prior Drs in the Tallahassee area has EVER done). 4 months later, his heart is operating at 44%. Would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Centafont for anyone having cardiac problems.

I only met this doctor once when I went with my mom (in her 80s) to her appointment. Not at all impressed! Very arrogant doctor who would not listen to her and was not concerned that “his medication” was causing her great suffering and would have ended up killing her. He got very snappy when she asked for the medicine to be decreased in order to see if the side affects would improve. He is no longer her doctor.

Dr Centafont is the only heart Doctor that has attended me, but I am very satisfied with his procedures. He takes all the time he needs to explain my condition and offer advice. I'm doing much better since being under his care.
