I suffered for years with severe leg pain. I couldn't do anything with my friends that involved walking. I struggled to finish my bowling season. There were weeks that I could only bowl 2 games. I went bowling today for the first time since Dr. Siva fixed my legs and I bowled all 3 games with NO PAIN. I can't wait to get back to enjoying life again. Thanks Dr. Siva for giving me my life back.

in Valrico, FL |
Dr. Siva will make it difficult for you to deal with most other doctors you may have. He is warm and caring and treats the entire person...not just the heart. He leads you rather than pushes. He takes the time to know his patients and identifies underlying issues which can affect your health. He talks with you...not at you. It takes a rare doctor that can take the worry out of heart issues. Dr. Siva is THAT doctor.
in Spring Hill, FL |
Dr Siva and staff are professional and explain all procedures. I had ablation procedure done in both my legs and it was a success. No more pain or swelling. I would tell anyone what a great group this is.
Port Richey, FL |
I was very pleased with Dr. Siva's care. I would recommend him to anyone that needed a good heart doctor.

Dr. Siva has been my doctor since 2009. Dr. Siva has helped me to control and maintain a healthy blood pressure rate. We accomplished this together through a series of tests and treatments that were not uncomfortable at all. I plan to continue to see Dr. Siva for my lifetime! Dr. Siva is uniquely qualified in his expertise as a cardiologist, at the same time, he is personable. I would have complete trust in Dr. Siva if I would require any surgical procedure in the future.

Would I recommend Dr. Siva? Oh yeah, what a wonderful man. He is kind, caring and listens. He takes time for you and your questions and will talk to you until you totally understand the situation and the solution for fixing the issue. I feel like he saved the life of our dad and continues to keep him at his best help with the aftercare and maintaining the health through medicine. We have never felt as though he was in a hurry to get done with us so that he could move on. We love this guy!

I had been to several heart doctors, none of them compare to Dr. Siva. He is compassionate and really takes the time to listen. He is knowledgeable, asks questions, and is the top in his field. You probably will never make a more important decision - than to choose a heart doctor. I'm glad I found Dr. Siva.

Dr. Siva is amazing My Mom had a rough year (2016) in/out of the hospital. Dr. Siva was actually off with his family and came in to the hospital to see her because I was not comfortable with the hospital doctor. He explains things so that you understand (not using big dr. words). He was great at communicating with my mothers other doctors (she has 8) and myself/husband while she was in hospital. He never seemed rushed when we were speaking to him. He always gave us as much time as needed.
in New Port Richey, FL |
I like Dr. Sivas as both a doctor and a person. He is very easy to talk to and seems to understand his patients concerns. He sides on the side of caution and being a cardiologist, I'm glad he does. I highly recommend Pasco Cardiology and Dr. Sivas as your cardiologist.

Dr. Siva is very knowledgable and compassionately. I never feel that he is rushing through my appointment and Dr. Siva is always willing to thoroughly explain my medical situation to me. I would highly recommend this physician to anyone with cardiac concerns.
in new port richey, fl |
He doesn't rush through my appoints and listens to me. He takes time to answers any questions. I About a year ago, he did a surgical procedure to diagnose my heart problem. It was a good option as he knew my problem immediately treated it. Recently I fainted, called his office & was seen the very next day. This accessibility is important to me. His staff is very caring and follow through on whatever is needed immediately. My primary doctor recommended him and it was a good recommendation.
New Port Richey, FL |
My experience with Dr. Siva has been that he is prepared to listen to my concerns and offer advice without being the " I am the Doctor so I know what is best for you attitude " which sadly some doctors have. A nice guy and I am very pleased to have him as my Cardiologist he has always treated myself and my wife with respect
in Spring Hill, FL |

I saw Dr. Sivasankaran about a high heart beat. He immediately put me into hospital and set up an ablation procedure based on my EKG. The results were significant. I was able to compete sucessfully last year in the senior olympics and am still able to perform at high cardiovascular levels for endurance events. Dr. Sivasankaran is a caring and attentive physician who is very knowledgeable in his field and works diligently for the patients overall well being.

Great Cardiologist! If you have Cardio issues Dr. Siva will correctly diagnose you whatever the issue you have and properly treat you. I've been seeing him for years now and highly reccomend him. Dr. Siva diagnosed a vein problem in my legs and performed Venous Ablation successfully stopping terrible pain. I also see him for high blood pressure/hypertension regulary. Fantastic Dr. w/a great Staff
in Port Richey, FL |
DR.SIVA IS VERY DIFFERENT THAN MOST OTHER DOCTORS....HE TAKES VERY AGGRESSIVE STEPS INTO FINDING OUT WHAT PROBLEMS YOU ARE HAVING AND WHY YOU ARE HAVING THEM. ...HE WILL HAVE YOU TAKE SEVERAL TESTS...HELPING HIM TO PINPOINT THE PROBLEMS BEFORE ANYTHING HAPPENS..NOT WAITING FOR SOMETHING TO HAPPEN AND THEN TAKING ACTION...HE IS VERY MUCH INTO PREVENTIVE MEDICINE....THANK YOU DR.SIVA....I WISH MORE D0CTORS WERE LIKE YOU..

He listens to his patient and ask questions about how I am feeling and he makes sure that I understand what he is planning for my care and any procedures he has planned. I have calcium blockage in both my legs. Dr. Siva was able to do the necessary procedures to open the arteries to get the blood flow back in my legs, making me able to walk without pain and cramps in my legs. Dr. Siva has been my Dr. for more than 10 yrs and I hope I can continue to be his patient for the duration of my life

Always cheerful, professional, focused and supportive, I can say without qualification that he is the most professional and competent medical doctor I have ever met. And, it’s not just his “medical expertise,” but it’s his personality, his caring bedside manner, and the essence of a wonderful and great man that truly cares, comforts, and saves lives.

I have had several appointments with dr. Sivasankaran and I am pleased each time with my time there. He is very thorough in asking questions and recommending what needs to be done. Sending me to a neurologist to rule out some symptoms that could be connected to neuropathy before he would do any procedures shows me concern about me and not rushing to do anything. I am happy to have a doctor taking time with my concerns.
in Spring Hill, FL |
Doc siva is a very caring doc and always takes time to talk with you about any concerns you may have. He has done three procedures for me ,one stent hart cat. one vein tretment all turned out verry well Would highly recomend him.
