He correctly diagnosed me with POTS Syndrome when for over 6 months I went to probably 20++ doctors to seek help, & many tried to help but couldn’t & some of them were very rude & insinuated that I was “faking my illness “. Dr Civello really (& patiently) listened to my explanation of symptoms and easily concluded I had POTS Syndrome, which in general may take up to 3 Yrs to get properly diagnosed. He was kind & compassionate; extremely smart & yet humble (. It to mention “a looker”- lol!)

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.
