      Dr. Fortsas is a very warm and caring physician, he invites questions and takes time to explain and confirm understanding. His warmth generates the feeling that he cares about my total well being and not just my heart health.

      Fabulous cardiologist! Called his office as new patient. After another cardiologist canceled skilled nursing facility decision to take my father to E/R, his office requested files to be sent over - first it was - we'll call u back - then-can u get yr father to our office today - then tell facility to get him to ER now!! He jumped right in for a new patient and took control! He & his team hands-on - prompt, responsive. One of the best dr experiences I have ever had!!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
