Excellent doctor. I had high blood pressure, when I first went to see him. He put me on medication, but he convinced me to make dietary changes and I was able to stop taking the blood pressure meds after 5 months, following his advice. He believes that life changes can solve a lot of problems and he is so right about that!

Dr. Popat is personable, likable, very knowledgeable and easy to talk with. He suggested I view all the videos on his website - I did - and as a result started a vegan diet - lost 12 pounds in 30 days and feel more focused with more energy - seem to remember things better, as well - for a 68 year old. A month later he was really happy that I had started eating more healthfully - his excitement was contagious and I felt so encouraged. This Doc is the best and I highly recommend him. God Bless!!

I wanted a younger more up-to-date Cardilologist and Dr. Popat more than fit the bill! He has a great "bedside manor" as well as being extremely knowledgable. I also like the fact that he is so intuned to dietary issues. I've had real problems with statins for years. Dr. Popat's staff is the first group who were able to get me qualified for Repatha even though several others had tried. They really know what they are doing! I hope Dr. Popat is my Cardilologist until I get called home!

I first met Dr. Popat when I was admitted to Florida Hospital for emergency care. I was very impressed with his excellent bedside manners. Dr. Popat is very friendly, upbeat and motivated to ensure his patients receive quality care. I feel lucky to have followed up with him as my consulting physician, as he listens and puts you at ease while determining the best treatment plan for good health.

Dr. Popat is very professional, yet very friendly and makes me feel at ease and confident in his decisions. I am a big believer in lifestyle having a huge effect on one's health and I am thrilled to have found a physician who also lives that philosophy. Too many doctors prescribe medicine as the first line of defense. I am not against medicine when it is needed, but I prefer to try more natural approaches to a health problem first. I highly recommend? Dr. Popat.

I'm a pharmacist at the veterans hospital. I've had the pleasure of working with Dr. Popat. He's very professional and attentive to his patients. As a physician he takes the time to listen to concerns of his patients and work towards a plan which will meet their needs. He is very polite and courteous to the staff.

Dr. Popat is an excellent doctor with a wonderful staff. They provide the best care to patients in the area. Besides having a strong knowledge of his speciality, he is a decent and kind man with excellent bedside manners. He never makes me feel rushed, but rather takes his time at each appointment and always makes me feel like a part of his family. He has been my doctor for many years and the only cardiologist I will ever go to.

I met Dr. Pop when I visited the James A. Haley emergency room for care. He is a great guy and fabulous doctor. He was through and attentive. I'm greatful to have had him as my attending physician. I highly recommend him to anyone in search of a cardiologist who will be attentive to their needs, kind, a great listener and thorough.
