in Crescent City, FL |
Dr. C has been my doctor for about six years. He always has time to listen and then explain any questions I might have. If I am having a problem he checks everything completely which certainly puts me more at ease knowing I am getting excellent care.
in St Augustine, FL |
I retired with 40+yrs experience as an RN in Oct'15 and moved to St. Augustine. Jan '16 developed chest pain with increasing severity. I knew no physicians. Chose my PCP from the internet who referred me to Dr. C. Though aware of my background he took the time to explain everything pre/post heart cath. I respect he didn't hesitate to call in a 2nd opinion to help me avoid open heart. He cared about me, my needs and the best approach. Bottom line no open heart, I'm fine. He's the best.
Palatka, FL |
I felt very comfortable at my first visit with the staff and doctor. Dr Caracciolo was thorough and cared about what I had to say. I feel reassured now that my health needs will be met.

Was very personable, thorough, and took time to explain test results.
in St Augustine, FL |
I felt that Dr caracciolo put me on the wrong medication and it was also terribly expensive. I felt awful for an enire year. He recommended me to have heart valve surgery but the surgery, although an awful experience, did not fix my condition. I had mitral valve regurgitation and I still had mitral valve regurgitation 6 months later. I had an ejection fraction of under 50 after the surgery that was supposed to fix everything.I did rehearch and determined that I should go to Mt sinai hospital
in St Augustine, FL |

I am dealing with multiple health issues and Dr. Caracciolo has put me at ease when it comes to my heart issue. He referred me for heart surgery which was necessary and has followed up extensively.

We thank the Lord every day for the wonderful, caring doctor he is and pray he has a long and successful practice.

in St Augustine, FL |
Hello. I am a Physician's Daughter. I am a Physician, so, I know how it should be. I can only tell you how professional, relaxing, efficient, informative, & TERRIFIC these visits were. From the Staff at the front Desk, to the Technician that did my tests, to the Doctor that gathered my initial info, prescribed the tests needed, then explained the follow up results. Everyone was great, supportive & knowledgeable,. especially, Dr. Caracciolo. I recommend this practice highly & exclusively.
in St Augustine, FL |
Dr C is always patient, caring, and very professional. In my opinion, he literally saved my life by initially scheduling the tests necessary to establish a base line diagnosis and discovered blockage which would have resulted in a (possible) severe heart attack. I recommend him without reservation. Every member of his staff is always supportive and professional.
in St Augustine, FL |
Dr. Caracciolo saved my life along with Dr. Crisco, they worked on me for hours making a stent work that a lot of Drs would of gave up and opened my chest open. Excellent Dr.s
in Palm Coast, FL |
Dr. Caracciolo is obviously knowledgeable, and he is very skillful at explaining complex issues without condescension. He is pleasant, professional and efficient while not seeming to rush his patients out the door. He's one of the best doctors we've seen in Florida.

Very knowledgeable, he explained the specifics of my condition and drugs to treat it being very specific at a level I could understand.
in Palm Coast, FL |
I was sent by my general family Dr., to see Dr. Caracciolo for my blood pressure. Seems it was hard to get my blood pressure under control. Dr. Caracciolo got me under control, immediately. I was thrilled. For that, alone, I would recommend him for my friends.
in St Augustine, FL |
Dr. Caracciolo spent time listening to my questions/concerns in a manner that made me feel like I was his only patient.

in St Augustine, FL |
Dr. C is compassionate and caring. He takes time to explain your condition in terms that you can understand. He tells it like it is. His office runs very efficiently. You are seen within a few minutes of your scheduled appointment time. The nurses are here the best.
in St Augustine, FL |
Dr C knew I had a blockage the first time I spoke to him. He suggested a wrist radial procedure to check it out and sure enough, I had a 95% blockage in the LAD. The procedure performing Dr put the stent in right then and there and saved my life as they suggested I may have been a week or so away from a massive heart attack. Great people with great knowledge. I will be forever grateful to him for seeing me so soon and changing my life.
in Palm Coast, FL |
