I came to Dr Heller's office very worried about recent test indicating valve regurgitation. I had written down questions that I wanted to ask. The Dr seemed antagonistic, and confrontational. He didn't have my latest test so he couldn't refer to it. I wanted to know if I needed to switch diuretics. The 1 I had was an old prescription, ( HTC 25/ triamterene 37 mg), this one is potassium sparing. His response "it's not potassium sparing" The Dr's attitude hurt me. I cried & cried on way home.

I was blessed to meet Dr. Heller in a surgical room when he installed a stent into a failed artery that had been part of bypass surgery in 2012. When I decided to change cardiologists recently, I located Dr. Heller and was extremely impressed with Dr. Heller during my office visit. At the end, he gave me his cell phone number on his card. How unusual is that? He really demonstrated his concern and caring nature. He is the BEST and his staff are all incredibly personable too!

Dr. Heller is caring and compassionate while being an excellent cardiologist. He takes the time necessary to discuss your case thoroughly. He is generally on time in the office and always returns phone calls, no matter how late in the day or evening. He has extensive experience in Integrative Cardiology. I had my Mitral Valve repaired with a clip installed through the vein. No open chest surgery required!

Dr Heller is professional, extremely knowledgable , has outstanding credentials and answers all your questions . He takes time with every patient and is very thorough . Unlike most cardiologists, dr Heller only recommends those tests he feels are needed. I find him to be courteous, reassuring and patient friendly.

My physician recommended Dr Heller and to date am very grateful. I was diagnosed with a clogged coronary artery. During our initial meeting Dr Heller sat and listened to my symptoms carefully. His responses were clear & educational. After 45 minutes in consultation I clearly understood my problem and the necessary procedure. His staff made all the hospital arrangements & I was in and out in 6 hours. Dr Heller is outstanding. He has been spot on and am extremely satisfied with his style & ethics

How can you write a review about a man who saved your life...without saying boldly HE SAVED MY LIFE!!! Dr. Heller is a person who genuinely listens to his patients and then uses his incredible skill and expertise to help them live healthy productive lives. Heart Disease is not something you die from it is something you can live with as long as you are being taken care of by Dr. Heller!

Dr. Heller listens to the whole story and asks pertinent questions related to your case. The first time I saw him he was in the room with me for 25 minutes, making sure he had all the details, and then told me that he could improve my quality of life, and spent the next month making sure to see me every week until I was settled. Dr. Heller was the first cardiologist to really listen to me and then try different and sometimes extreme measures to make me feel better.

He took a thallium stress test and I was told by his medical assistant that I was in bad shape and not to get excited or stressed snd heller wod be back in a week. I then went home called my go and went to a cardio out of jfk. He took an angiogram to me I was clear Nd he thought my stent a year before probably wasn't necessary. I was livid. I called to confront him and he said why didn't I ask to see his partner. He is bad He is now on his 3rd partnership

Dr.Heller is an extraordinary physician. Brilliant yet extremely approachable. He is able to hear a patient's voice without judging. He takes the necessary tests, but he also listens to symptoms. Coming from Philadelphia, surrounded by many of the best doctors and hospitals, it was a relief to have found a doctor of this caliber in Florida. M.Moskovitz
