What People Say About Dr. Jesal Popat, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Having a strong family history of heart disease, I myself wanted to get the best care I could for my own heart and Dr. Jesal Popat was the perfect doctor for that task. I was able to make call his office and make an appointment with no issues. During my office visit Dr. Popat he was able to clearly list all the health risk that can cause damage to my heart, my weight being one of them and my smoking habits. Dr. Popat throughly went through his vegetarian and plant base meals which to my surprise weren’t all bad. I can proudly say that I have cut back significantly with my smoking and lost some weight as well. Dr. Popat also did a series of lab work and heart exams which showed that I would benefit from a heart catheterization. Dr. Popat did the heart catheterization at St. Josephs hospital and I was in and out in no time, his bedside manners are beyond any other doctor I have seen while hospitalized. I am very pleased to have him as a doctor and his honesty is very much appreciated.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Popat. When my husband had a heart attack, he was so bad, no one wanted to operate. Dr. Popat operated and it has been almost 2 years since the attack. Dr. Popat cares about his patients and it shows at each visit. Hopefully, I will not need a heart doctor, but if I do I choose Dr. Popat.

Best cardiologist in the Tampa Bay area!! Dr. Popat definitely saved my life - and changed how I will eat forever. He focuses on nutrition, not pharmaceuticals (like most doctors). But if you do need a stent, he's also top notch at that as well. He installed a stent for me (for a 90% blockage) and I felt great the very next day.

I searched in the internet for the best Cardiologist in Florida. I am from Puerto Rico and after Hurricane Maria, many doctors retired and/or went to USA. Currently, it takes from 7 months to one year to have an appointment with a specialist here. This was the reason to search in Florida for the best physician-cardiologist. Dr. Jesal V. Popat took time to listen about all my health concerns and my goals to improve health conditions. He demonstrates throughout his feedback that he actually cares for my health. He also integrates nutritional advice which is very helpful to achieve a proactive approach to improve my health concerns. He projects a very positive attitude with his professionalism and kindness. I admire him for his strong educational background which covers all the phases of cardiology. His staff Jessica and Alyssa are very polite, professional, helpful and friendly which provides a sense of "belonging" to the right place. I highly recommend this physician.

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.
