I saw Dr. Baptista the first time 5 years ago. I had been to 2 other doctors before him and they could not detect MVP with all their stress tests, and other expensive services. It was ridiculous. I could fee something was going on. He did. I then knew it was not in my head! I now live out of state so must seek another compentent cardiologiest for a checkup. So sad.

The doctor and staff are OK. They set up a nuclear stress test for me and I found out that it was going to cost me $2500 when I was at the diagnostic center. I canceled out and the practice charged me $200 for cancellation. It is not right to charge for the services not rendered. I am ending my patronage to Dr. Baptista unless they rectify this and give me back $200.
