Through my bypass surgery & stint placements, Dr. Stapleton was very astute in assessing my condition & then seeing me through the procedures. He was thorough in explaining the issues & informed me of every step in the process. His experience & depth of knowledge was obvious from the beginning. I highly recommend Dr. Stapleton.

I never met dr Stapleton until right before my cardiac catheterization. He was so nice and reassuring. He ended up putting two stents in me. I was 54 years old. He spent time asking about my history and lifestyle. On each follow up visit he went over the labs then spent a good bit of time talking with me. Never talking down to me. It’s been almost a year and we got my cholesterol down where it needs to be. He is very talented in his field and very kind and caring. I highly recommend Dr Stapleton

Dr. Stapleton is a very caring and highly competent cardiologist. He listens to my concerns and addresses all of my questions. After suffering a heart attack in the late 1970s and subsequently undergoing a quadruple bypass in 1993, I feel that my heart is in good hands.
