Dr. C is amazing . He is thorough an extremely knowledgeable. His staff is kind and efficient. He looks after my husband that has major heart problems and suffered two severe strokes. I trust him and feel very confident in his decisions. I can’t say enough about this practice and every doctor associated with it.

My husband was a patient at Flagler Hospital in Saint Augustine. Before we could leave this Doctor was trying to persuade my husband to have bypass heart surgery after he was on a ventilator for almost two weeks and came out of a coma. We got out of the hospital and after seeing another heart doctor he couldn’t believe any doctor would crack my husbands chest while in the shape he was in. The nurses told us we were right to refuse.

We have just move here from NJ and picked Dr. Carracciolo for his credentials and cardiologists with vascular expertise. The office staff was helpful, efficient, and made the transition very easy. Our medical assistant was very nice and completed the information for the doctor. Dr. C was very personable, down to earth, explained everything and the plan of care going forward. He made my fiancee feel comfortable to ask questions and wasn't rushed at all. He even asked if I had any questions, thus including me in his care. Dr. C scheduled him for a aortic ultra sound due to risk factors which he had never been advised about before. I would recommend Dr. C and First Coast Heart for anyone looking for a cardiologist! Thanks Dr. C!
