Dr. Le took very good care of my dad. He had a heart attack and required 2 procedures and 4 stents. He took his time to answer all of our question. Thank you for saving my dad's life!

This review is for Francis Le, MD, a Cardiologist and also an Airmen Medical Examiner for the Federal Aviation Administration. Dr. Le is also a consultant for the FAA concerning cardiology issues. As an airline pilot, I must complete and pass a medical examination every 6 months to continue my occupation. Several months ago, I experienced flutter like feelings in my heart area and immediately saw my family doctor who diagnosed my condition as Atrial Fibrillation. On that day, I began a several months period of being unable to pilot an aircraft due Afib being a disqualification per the FAA guidelines. For my situation, Dr. Le was the perfect match to get me back to work as quickly as possible. Dr. Le prescribed the approved medication that corrected my Afib within two days, and set up all the FAA required tests I would need for the FAA to issue my special issue medical to return to work. I found Dr. Le and his staff to be professional, no nonsense, guiding me every step of the way.

Dr.Le diagnosed my condition quickly, which required an implantable device for treatment. After the procedure, I saw his P.A. Seth Ruffin who answered most of my questions as well as tuned the device. I am pleased and somewhat surprised at the high level of care as well as the results. Thanks Dr Le and Seth!

Recently I had the annual visit to check my pace-maker and meet with Dr. Le. Upon entering the office, it was nice to see that numerous precautions had been taken to make the area safe during the COVID 19 crisis. My wait in the office was short and I actually got the pace-maker check done a little before the scheduled time. Staff were very efficient and courteous. Next, I met with Dr. Le to discuss my current condition and data from the pace-maker system. Since I have been felling well have not had any problems, it was encouraging to hear Dr. Lee agree that the data was positive. Throughout our short appointment, Dr. Le was respectful and courteous. Overall it was a very positive appointment.

We were seen very timely in contrast to previous visits. Dr Lee was interested in Virginia's issue with taking Torsemide (water pill) and was glad we let him view a recent lab report request by Kidney Dr., Dr Compton. He failed to get a copy of that report? He rightly accepted Dr Compton as the primary manager of degree of water retention bs. Torsemide.

Family member had cardiac intervention by Dr. Le at Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center. The doctor talked to my brother vey kind and humane. I would describe the doctor as an altruist. He showed concern for my bother's well being at that time and also for later. Dr.Le offered medications that were effective and affordable. Dr. Le offered followup at his volunteer clinic. Thanks to you and your staff for such a wonderful experience. Kudos to Ross,RN in the Cath lab and who was most professional and communicated! Thanks for your great care!!

I was concerned the first time I visited Dr. Le but he was so through and nice that I got over it quickly. Now after my second visit (with tests) I feel that I chose the best doctor for me. He explained options and was very helpful. No one wants to hear that they need to drop 30 pounds but he explained how I should go about it. He also told me I needed to cut back on carbs. I really liked the way he explained the test results and what needed to be done to keep my heart healthy. I've got a follow up appointment in 6 months to see if I've made any progress (I get the picture 5 lb per month) and improvements in heart functions.
