Dr, Pubbi has been working with my husband heart condition (A-fib) for over 6 years. He is kind and listens to us, but first most ensures that my husband health is never in question. When my husband keep going into A-fib Dr Pubbi did a 6.5 hour mapping of his heart to burn electrical connections to keep the heart out of A-fib. My husband went home the next day and once healed has rarely had any A-fib bouts.. He is a caring doctor with great skill I would recommend to anyone and have!!

St Augustine, FL |
Dr. Pubbi installed my defibrillator in august 2010. Since that time I've seen Dr. Pubbi on mostly routine visits and found him to be highly professional and obviously more than qualified. His bed-side manner is top notch and Dr. Pubbi always takes time to explain things in layman's terms. Thanks again to First Coast and it's excellent team of physicians and staff.
in St Augustine, FL |
Dr. Pubbi placed a pacemaker in me almost 3 years ago and I haven't had a problem with it. He checks it (and me) every 6 months and is always extremely pleasant. I always leave feeling that we are friends. I like that!

Dr. Pubbi is the most patient , kind ,warm Dr in his field I have ever had. He takes time to listen and no question you ask goes unanswered,I trust him with my cardiac care and my husband trusts him too..You will not find a better Cardiologist in this state . He is superb.

in Jacksonville, FL |
Dr. Pubbi has been our family cardiologist almost 8 years now. We love him and respect his opinion. Could not have asked for better care. My mother is also his patient and she always says she wishes all doctors could be as kind and caring as Dr. Pubbi! His staff is amazing and his scheduling person, Mahla is an absolute miracle worker. She makes things happen. Wish all offices had such a great team!

I have tried repeatedly to communicate with Dr. Pubbi and his staff through the Patient Portal. In NO instance have I ever gotten response, despite my mentioning the failure once. On the most recent occasion I wrote concerning my need for a change in a prescription the amount of which I was supposed to double. However, doubling leaves me short before the prescription can be refilled. I finally went to the office, and a few days later got a call about the issue but no resolution.

in Fleming Island , FL |
I have been a patient of Dr. Pubbi for several years now. He is a patient man that listens to my concerns. He takes the time to answer all questions I may have. He guides me through relevant information concerning my heart care breaking it down to my understanding. He has gained my complete trust concerning my health care. You can see by my ratings below my satisfaction with Dr Pubbi
in Palm Coast, Florida |
Words will never express what this man means to me! At the age of 24 I was diagnosed with a rare heart condition, scared half to death and not knowing if I would even live, Dr. Pubbi made me a priority to preform a surgery he had never done before. It's been almost 2 years since and you would never know I went through the things I did. I owe everything to this man and he will forever have a huge part of my heart. Hands down the best cardiologist out there!
in Keystone Heights, FL |
Dr. Pubbi is m y hero! He has implanted a pacemaker and has replaced one lead since 2011. He is one of the best doctors (not just cardiologist) I have ever been to. He listens and treats you as an intelligent individual, not just a body. When I leave an appointment, I feel I am valued as a person and not just income. I have never experienced anything other than courtesy and professionalism with Dr. Pubbi and will continue to sing his praises to any and all who need a cardiologist.
in Orange Park, FL |
Dr. Pubbi cut to the chase, and did not order unnecessary, time delaying procedures, but diagnosed me quickly. I feel 100% better after my procedure, and would recommend him to anyone.
Jacksonville, FL |
Dr. Pubbi is a professional, in depth and caring cardiologist whom I would recommend to anyone.

Dr Pubbi is such a great person and very friendly. He's great at explaining your procedures. He will go as far as drawing a picture to make sure you understand what is going to occur during your procedure. He's always in a good mood and smiling. A few years ago, I was scheduled for surgery. Dr Pubbi called me personally to postpone the surgery because he got the flu. I thought that was awesome that he called himself.

It was good He eplained everything and I am 75% understanding what is going to happen.

I've seen dr. Pubbi for 5 years fixed my afib, withno reoccurrence 4 years.
in St Augustine, FL |
I called the office today September 19 to get results of my echo exam that I had September 12(Monday). I had to leave a message to call me back again. Apparently the other doctors failed to read the results of my exam within 24 hours. When I had my appointment Friday Sept 16 Dr. Pubbi could not believe that the test results were not read from the test that was taken on Monday September 12. This is very frustrating to say the least. I would appreciate a phone call today to explain my echo results
in Jacksonville, FL |
He listens to your questions and answers so you can understand. It is fairly easy to get an appt. to go along with your schedule.
in Jacksonville, FL |
Unable to contact office for appointment, only able to leave messages and no return call when messages are left for an appointment

He is smart and very compassionate about your health. I love this doctor, one in a million. He will run any test to get to the bottom of your health concerns. Excellent, keep up the good work doctor P.
Jacksonville, FL |
First he is a caring physician with his patients. Takes whatever time is necessary to explain tests and reports. This maybe why extra time at the office happens quite often.
