Dr. Jimenez inspires confidence. He is thorough and is skilled at explaining complex procedures in simple terms. Thanks to him I am no longer on medication and my palpitations have been gone for over a year after a single procedure.

Dr. Jimenez did an excellent job explaining my condition and then fixing me up. I had palpitations for years and people would blame it on anxiety. Dr. Jimenez discovered that I had an arrhythmia and he was able to eliminate it. I haven't had a recurrence in 6 months thanks to his help. He was also kind and considerate to my family. My wife and daughter had many questions and they both agreed that he was thorough and not rushed. Thank you again.

I always feel like it's 'hurry up and wait' when I go to his office. The wait times can be long and then I feel rushed with the actual time with the doctor. I like Dr. Jimenez but he works out of JFK Medical Center in Atlantis, FL and I will not return to that hospital.

Arrogant, dismissive, overconfident. He has no business speaking to patients or their families. Hewould not explain the situation to us or offer alternatives. I would never recommend him to anyone and encourage my Insurance to challenge his charges forfailure to perform his duties.

My Mother is my angel and Dr. Marcelo saved. He held her hand and explained the procedure with so much empathy that I was moved and had to come here to review him. I don't ever review Doctors but this guy needs a gold star (or 5). Thank you Doc, from the Logan family.

I had a long time flutter and was sick of treatments and hospitals. Dr. Jimenez took care of my arrhythmia and I am now healthy as an ox. I can't thank him enough.

Dr. Jimenez has seen me for rapid heart rate (SVT). I've had ablations in the past prior to moving to Florida, and he was highly recommended to me by a friend in the medical field. I have found Dr. Jimenez to be knowledgeable and trustworthy. He has always taken his time and explained things in a way that I can understand. I know that I'm in the best care with him and his staff.

Review all the facts he gives you before you decide to have him do any surgery. He exaggerates his accomplishments in order to solicit your business. After the surgery, followup care is none existent. He didn't even have the courtesy to follow up with his patient after surgery. He has no program to insure timely followup for patients who need post operative help. He is arrogant and really doesn't care about anything accept his next surgery. Stay away there are better surgeons.

I have three had PVI RF cardiac ablations, with Dr.Fishel, senior associate of Jimenez. Dr. Jimenez spends much more time than the allotted amount, is far more personable and far more interested in the patient.
