If you are looking for a new Cardiologist, you will be well taken care of when you visit with Dr. Siva, as I highly recommend Dr. Siva. I have been of a patient Dr. Siva for 10 years, he is an excellent doctor, along with being a caring and compassionate person. Dr. Siva makes you feel like you are his only patient, he listens to your concerns and questions. I have been able to manage my blood pressure with the care of Dr. Siva. He performed a procedure on my leg veins to prevent swelling and improve circulation, reduce the pressure and discomfort. Dr. Siva’s new office is very nice, conveniently located and it has an open reception area that is very bright and airy. Dr. Siva showed me around his beautiful new offices and exam rooms. Many tests/procedures are performed in-house, like stress test and ultra-sound. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. If I need cardiovasculare surgery, Dr. Siva is my first and only choice!

His new clinic location in Newport Richey is a state of art and fully equipped with first class medical equipments. His new clinic is staffed with professional and very polite nurses and medical assistants. I consider Dr. Satish a true gentleman and I feel blessed to have such a great cardiologist. James NE.

Dr Siva is a most unusual doctor. He actually listens to you, never talks down to you and makes sure you completely understand. He is highly intelligent, speaks 5 or 6 languages but it still a down-to-earth , easy to talk to person. His aide, Tiffany is sweet and helpful . All tests can be done in the offices which makes it very convenient

My experience with Dr. Sivasankaran has always been a positive and pleasant experience. He always takes his time and explains the procedure and answers any questions I may have at the time. He was the doctor on call at Trinity and thanks to his skill I am able to write this review. Two weeks after my emergency stent surgery I am feeling great. I recommend him to anyone who needs a cardiologist.

For anyone seeking medical care for cardio or vein issues, Dr. Siva is the best. His modern and state-of-the-art offices are ideally located and staffed with the finest people in medical care and who are sensitive to the patients needs. While one may have many choices in cardio medical care, in my opinion, Dr. Siva is the very best. In addition to being an accomplished physician he's compassionate and a true humanitarian. He saved my life.
