Would recommend Dr. Civello to anyone experiencing any cardiac problems. Knowledge, experience, and abilities put me at ease at the first appointment. Had chronic AFib that was extremely resistant to non invasive treatments but was cured by an ablation procedure. I am extremely pleased with the treatment I recieved from him and all of his staff.
