Dr Sanchez is a caring doctor. He is attentive and always ready to help his patients.
in Largo, FL |
Dr. Sanchez is knowledgeable, but there are a lot of doctors that are... What sets Dr. Sanchez apart is his human side, he actually "hears" as well as take the time to understand and treat the entire person. He is such an amazing human (and doctor), I recommend him highly and have sent several friends to him... As long as he is in practice (and I live) he will be my cardiologist!

Dr Sanchez has been a caring and totally awesome doctor to me, He always takes the time to talk with me, he tells me his concerns and what I can do to better my heart health. I would highly recommend him as your heart doctor, he is a Christian that I trust with my life. All the ones in his office are great too. Thanks doc??

My first visit with Dr. Sanchez was great! I have been to many doctors in my lfe, and many specialists; too many have been either too busy to explain or act as if I could not possibly understand. Dr. Sanchez did neither. He took the time to discuss my health issues thoroughly and clearly, and suggested options. That makes him a five-star keeper in my book!

Dr. Sanchez is the type of doctor I wish all were...smart, caring, and easy to talk to. I felt like he really cared and wanted to assist me.
Largo, FL |
The staff is wonderful and very kind and understanding. They work and fight for you with your insurance company to help get authorizations if needed. Dr. Sanchez takes his time with you and explains everything so that you understand what is going on with what he wants to do. My overall experience with this office is amazing. .
in Parrish, FL |
I went to Dr. Sanchez after bypass surgery with complications. I needed answers from my cardiologist at the time and wasn't getting them. Dr. Sanchez sat down with me, listened to every single detail of my experience, addressed every single question I had, adjusted medication in a way that improved my quality of life immediately and has been a tremendous help to face the heart disease I have. He, as well as his staff, are incredibly thorough, knowledgeable, patient, caring and loving.

I have been his patient for a few years and i used to be closer to the office but I don't mind the drive because Dr. Sanchez is an excellent doctor and he cares about his patients.

First and foremost Dr, Sanchez is very friendly and listens to his patients. He talked to me in layman's terms and didn't go over my head when explaining himself.
