My appointments were dragged out almost for a month. I didn't get my test results for over a week for my echocardiogram and then waited another week on my 24 hr monitor. Then I was told I had to wait another 2 wks to get the stress test. I told him I wanted to get this done before we left for vacation because I didn't want to end up in a hospital in a foreign country. Every time I asked to have the doctor call me, he was unavailable. I was given a medication that made my b/p drop to 89/69.

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!!
