What People Say About Dr. Joshusa Valtos, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
I was a patient of Valtos because I decided my original cardiologist was located too far from my house. That was a mistake. This past Sunday I had an afib episode and called 911. When the ems arrived, my heart had reverted back to a normal rhythm. I called Valtos’s office the next day to get checked out but reached a voicemail which said they would call back within 24hours. I left my information but did not receive a call back. It’s Wednesday and they still haven’t called. I will now return in kind by not calling them ever again. I don’t see how they stay in business with that quality of service. I have never experienced such horrible service from a doctor. If I could give them zero stars I would because that’s how much service I received.

Dr VALTOS is someone I'd highly recommend. He's through, takes time to discuss health issues with you and makes sure you understand what your treatment will be before leaving. He's explains things in a way you can understand and doesn't sugar coat what's going on or how things will progress.

Dr Valtos is exceptional in every way. The time he spends with me and my loved ones is beyond compare. He even takes the time to handle “non cardiologist “ type issues from time to time when I’m seeing him for cardiac issues. Excellent caregiver and I wish there were more like him.

He identified my atrial fibrillation and treated quickly. I required a pacemaker/defibrillator and treatment for heart failure. Prior to procedure, my EF of heart function was 15-20%. After conversion, atrial fibrillation, .ablation, and pacemaker placement, my function if now 45%. My quality of life has greatly improved. I believe I would not be alive today due to my frequent flash pulmonary edema episodes and multiple ICU admissions prior to treatment

I would recommend Dr. Valtos to anyone looking for a cardiologist that cares about his patients. He takes the time to get to know his patients, and listens to their concerns. He is very knowledgeable and shows great empathy. He explains your condition in great detail, but in a way you can understand! His knowledge and skills as a physician, alongside his fantastic bedside manner make for the best doctor you could hope for!

How was your experience with Dr. Valtos?

About Me

At the center of cardiovascular care there should be strong interpersonal relationship to provide shared decision making.  Personally, I like to spend time getting to know patients to be better prepared to take care of them in critical moments.  Society provides doctors the privilege of being caregivers, and I take that very seriously.
