I’m satisfied with the care provided by this physician. He’s answered critical questions regarding my diagnosis and provided data to document the findings and prognosis. He’s also been quite kind and understanding in his approach to treat and heal. Excellent bedside manner, truthful but with compassion. I admire his dedication to the treatment of cardiovascular disease.

It is with pleasure that I recommend Dr Sancaktar. I had been experiencing pain in my left shoulder and arm. I contacted my primary Doctor and he suggested that we look at the practice since he had heard very good things about the doctors. I received a call from the office to make my initial appointment. The scheduler said I would be seeing Dr Sancaktar for my visit; I did meet the doctor. I told him of my painful shoulder and arm and he stated that there was a concern for me since I had had breast cancer 7 years earlier and had received a large amount of radiation as part of my treatment. He stated that studies had shown that the radiation could cause damage in both the arteries and valves of the heart. He scheduled the necessary tests and it was found that I indeed needed to have both bypass surgery as well as a new mitral valve. Dr Sancaktar introduced me to Dr. Michael Firstenberg who would be the Cardiovascular surgeon who would do my surgery. An excellent doctor for sure.

I am a new patient of Dr. Sancaktar. I have only met with him one time. He has ordered two tests for me to be taken within this next week. He seemed very professional, not “stuffy” and know it all, was proactive on what I need to have done to make an accurate diagnosis for my future well being. He spoke to me so that I could understand and not some jibberish that people with degrees behind their name often do. He didn’t seem to rush me through his office. I appreciate his kindness and helpful comments.
