in HERNANDO BEACH |
Easy to speak to, listens well and speaks to the person not the patient. Understands and elicits concerns. Addresses concerns and has only the best interest of patient in mind. Treats the whole person and includes the symptom and the anxiety in a manner which makes one comfortable and thankful that he was chosen to help you. He treats you like he would his own family and when he does you believe he does. Cannot say enough good things about him. I am thankful that I found him and have comp

Dr. Idicula, himself, as a physician is an excellent doctor-however his staff & associates are completely incompetent. I saw him 2 mos. ago & was referred to an Oncologist; 7 wks b4 they recd the referral. I was seen by one MD associate in his office-it was a 3 hr long visit as I had to wake the MD up 42 times; left the exam room & asked the staff if the MD had a health issue (low blood sugar, narcolepsy); no one cares; anaphylatic reaction x1 in his office - overall a frightening experience

Dr Idicula and his staff are amazing. Friendly, professional and go the extra mile to take care of you. I highly recommend him and his clinic. We came from Ga to see him and we were not disappointed. Our experience was wonderful

Without the help & intelligence of Dr. Joe, my mother might be dead. He's the only one who cared about my mom no matter if she had insurance. I love him for his compassion in being a doctor.

What can I say, Dr Joe in my eyes is the best. He is most caring about ALL his patients. The compassion, thoroughness, patience and non-condescending are just some of his exceptional virtues. What other doctor would personally call his seriously affected patients to see how they are feeling? His staff is courteous, responsive and efficient. Hip Hip Hooray. ,

Dr. Joe Idicula is acutely intuitive, caring, efficient, highly intelligent, a top expert in his specialty of cardiology, and has an extremely wide breadth of knowledge. He is an extraordinary human being. This flows through to his exceptional staff. I highly recommend him without reservation.

Dr. Joe has been taking care me, and my family for 20+ years, he's very thorough, & kind, he goes above and beyond. If you need him in an emergency he's always there. Dr. Joe has the respect of a Very Large Medical Community. Doesn't matter where I go, Doctors & Nurses alike know "Dr. Joe", and have nothing but praise for him!!! His Staff is Top Notch Professional, Respectful and Caring. Also, you almost never see this any more, but most of the staff has been with him since the beginning... TMM

Can not say enough great things about Dr Joe and his staff. Thank you for your professional services, bed side manors, treating us like family. Thank you isn't enough. Dr Joe is a truly awesome Doctor who cares about his patients.

I am an agent for Blue Cross Blue Shield and have been told by so many of my clients how good Dr. Idicula was but it wasn't until he saved my husband's life did I see not only his expertise but the compassion his man shows for his patients and their families. There not many doctor's around that make you feel the way he does.
in Brooksville , FL |
Dr Joe Idicula was AWESOME! He was very polite, respectful, thorough & frank. He told me exactly what supplements I should take & what ones I was taking were bad for me & why or if they were just a waste of money. He has a slight accent but is wonderful if I ask him to repeat or spell something. He explains everything in simple terms & even draws diagrams and suggests patient take notes. He encourages testing as naturally as possible & encourages eating right & daily exercise. He's wonderful!
in Spring Hill, FL |
Office staff spends majority of time on the phone, ignoring the patients in the office. Very poor office skills.
in Spring Hill, FL |
Dr. Idicula truly cares about his patients. He takes the time to listen to your symptoms as well as thoroughly informing you about his diagnosis and treatment plan. He is very friendly and in my opinion the best doctor in Hernando county!
in Weeki Wachee, Fl |
We feel SAFE in Dr. Joe Iducula's hands. That is a wonderful feeling. Donna Kelley
in Spring Hill, FL |
Dr. Joe is like an old-fashioned doctor who truly cares about his patients. From the moment you walk thru the door, you feel like there is something different about this man and his practice. His staff are some of the kindest and most accommodating people in the medical industry. Take it from a person who had been to numerous doctors before finding Dr. Joe, you will be hard pressed to find doctor more compassionate and determined to heal you than this doctor. Again, his staff is amazing too.
