Sun City Center, FL |
As a new heart patient I was set at ease by the entire staff. My condition was explained to me and I was set at ease as to how it will be treated Dr. Duarte clearly answered my questions and explained the surgery. This was my first time at this office and I highly recommend their professional atmosphere.

AND HOSPITALS I HAVE EVER BEEN TO IN MY LONG LIFE THERE HAS NEVER A MEDICAL EXPERIENCE 2 COMPARE 2 THIS. AND IS STAFF IS BEYOND GREAT

From reception to the actual consult with Dr. Duarte, I found my visit and interaction to be exceptional. I initially met with Nurse Practitioner Misti Davenport for triage and assessment. She was very professional; kind, polite, and provided an excellent overview of my surgery. Dr. Duarte was very comforting, detail-oriented in his discussions about my surgery, and exuded confidence, compassion, and professionalism which reassured me that I'd chosen the right doctor for my care!
