Patient Comments (7)
in North Port, FL |
Doctor did not have information on me when I he met with me. He told me that someone would call me when the results were received from Millennium, but I never received a call. So I contacted the office and spoke with a nurse who stated that the doctor was out of the country, but when he returned she would have him follow up with me. That was three months ago and I'm still waiting. Let just hope I don't have a serious heart problem because you did nothing, but charge me. Thanks

Dr Lopez installed two stents in my right coronary artery at Fawcett Hospital, in Port Charlotte, fl. In doing so he blocked a side artery. Since that time I have suffered from heart attack symptom side affects that have had a significant negative impact on my lifestyle, i.e. no dancing, biking, etc Also, I spent two days plus at Fawcett and never had a visit from either Dr Lopez or any of his staff. I also don't know how long I froze my butt off in the operating room waiting for his "arrival"

Dr Lopez has been a great Dr for me. Excellent communicator and a very caring person. When I came to FL the MI Dr was not able to help me and Dr Lopez with all the appropriate testing and question was able to prescribe the correct medications to stabilize my heart and return me to an active life style that I love. I enjoy his personality and sense of humor, its an honor and pleasure to be his patient.
