Dr Kasapis listens to my questions and concerns, and provides explanations that are easily understood. The staff is first-class. Facilities are clean and modern. I give Dr Kasapis my highest recommendation.
in McComb, MS |
He saved my life! I had a heart attack in the ER and Dr. Jones brought me back. Dr. Kasapis and his team arrived and fought like hell to get me through it. My heart stopped 19 times from beginning to end. 95 minutes after arriving at the ER, they were wheeling me in CICU with three stents. Excellent intervention surgery and great after care.
in Gloster, MS |
Dr. Kasapis saved my life 5 years ago when I had a massive heart attack. Made it to the ER in McComb after crushing pain in my chest. Coded in the ER and was brought back by Dr. Kasapis and the ER team. I can't say enough good things about my treatment then or the follow up treatment received from Dr. Kasapis. I've had other heart related incidents and all were treated by Dr. Kasapis with excellent results. Like I said, the man, with God's help, saved my life.
in Ruth, Ms |
He saved my life 31/2 years ago and continues to prevent me from having another heart attack.

I have a family and personal cardiac history. I see him on a 6month schedule. He is courteous, prompt and knowledgable. The parking at this office is shared with a Physical-Re-Hab office. It is the pits. Re-Hab patients are NOT the ONLY patients with mobility problems. Earlier this year My BP had a sudden steep increase and was seen by an associate. They were gruff, impatient and seemed miffed.

Recently Dr. Kasapis saved my husband's life by moving efficiently and with great expertise! Very politely he explained to us what he and his team were about to do. He moved very quickly but with great care. After the cath and 2 stents Dr. Kasapis thoroughly explained the procedure with pictures of my husband's heart to him and then to me. I am most grateful that this doctor was available to work on my loved one!
in Mccomb, MS |
Extremely talented. Patient friendly. Very informative to patients and patient family. Leader in his field.

I had a very good experience while undergoing a few cardiac procedures. Dr. Kasapis and his staff were very professional and caring during my testing and treatment. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a cardiologist.
in Jayess, ms 39642 |
I had a heart attact and got emergency surgery late one night. The doctors, nurses, and follow up rehab have been great.
Columbia, MS |
This doctor performed an unecessary Angiogram, and destroyed the pulse in right wrist. I have sleep Apnea which was in records. I incubated while sedated, and woke the next afternoon completely unaware and scared. There was nothing found. Dr. Kasapis never came to see me. Nor did any other cardiologist. I was signed out and sent home. I will never trust anyone from this practice, and will never go back to this hospital.
