Patient Comments (4)
in St Petersburg, FL |
I have been very pleased with the Heart Institute. Since first seeing them on a recommendation of a neighbor who is a patient. Since seeing Dr. Memon who was able to get me a heart monitor for a month and then Dr. Cardona who was able to interpret the results and come up with my options. One of the options was to treat my problems with medication rather then surgery, this was not offered by my Doctor in NY. The follow up visit to Kim was just as informative and efficient.

Prompt and easily understood.
in Largo, FL |
I really want to personally take this time to thank Dr. Cardona and his staff, who personally sees to it that I am carefully watched due to my heart attack. I get calls checking on my status and makes sure I am doing well. I go the pace maker clinic there and they monitor my pace maker, and they can personally tell me what I have been doing, If I have been over doing it or just resting, It monitors my daily activity. But the staff is really awesome, I recommend them for your heart. needs.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Cardona. He is very personable and calm and my research indicates he has an excellent education and background in his field.
