I love this Dr.. I have been his patient over 10 years... I had an echo on Fri and was told results would take a week.. on Tues 2 days later, I got a call from the nurse and she went over all my results!! She made sure I understood everything and made my next annual appt.. I highly recommend this Dr and group...

A patient of Dr. Caras's prior to the following event. I went to the hospital ER late in 2006, with shortness of breath. I laid in the ER for approximately 12 hours, without him being notified by the hospital. A PA from Dr. Caras's practice came by and we finally got word to Dr. Caras what was happening. A short time later, Dr. Caras came to the ER, took one listen to my heart and breathing. He took me for an ultrasound and determined I had a PE. I had emergency surgery, he saved my life.

I was told by Dr Caras that depending on An Echo I might have to have open heart surgery due to a aortic valve problem.I did have the echo 11 days later and then never got any results or heard from him or anyone in his office .I waited 10 days and tried to get the results but no answer.Finally after much pressure on my son's part Dr agreed to let nurse read me the results.I simply cannot understand this level of care.I will not be coming back to this practice.
