With all my heart I would recommend Pima Heart, Dr Pacanowski and his team of providers and staff. They genuinely care and have a high standard of of services. For me I was given back my life, my livelihood and my health. Most Dr's would have not had the dedication to see my surgery through. I was a mess inside and had complications from an old accident. Every step of the way and each member of the staff at Pima Heart was kind and professional and dedicated to helping me through some of the most challenging times of my life. I attribute much of that to Dr. Pacanowski's Leadership. Thanks to everyone that helped me get fixed I now am feeling myself again and looking forward to the rest of my life. I am free of pain, I am free from the burden of not knowing how I was going to provide a good life for my family. My family and friends and self will forever be grateful. Thank You Dr Pacanowski and Pima Heart for caring. 100%

My mother hit her leg which caused a huge cut. We tried everything to get it to heal and she eventually gave in to see a doctor. We saw Dr. Pacanowski and he is very personable and explained things well about the procedure she needed done. The place she had it done on River road was a little hard to find, but very nice and worth going to over a hospital. The staff is very friendly and attentive there. The cut finally healed! I would recommend him to anyone.
