Acworth, GA |
Great doctor. Pleasant, professional, Attentive and above all on top of his game with his extensive knowledge of cardiovascular medicine. Trust him completely !
in Palm Coast, FL |
I think Dr. C can read people better than the first Dr I was seeing. Dr C is a good listener, explains things in plain, easy to understand language, even draws pictures to help make his point. I like his straight forward, but professional approach.
in St Augustine, FL |
I already recommended him to a couple people already. He is wonderful and knows his stuff. Everyone in his office is extremely friendly and caring. Sincerely, Michael Valaro
Palatka, FL |
I was referred by my primary physician. I am disappointed in the care I have received. I was admitted to the hospital in Palatka as an emergency patient. I had my records sent to Dr. Caracciolo after tests were done. When I had my appointment, they couldn't find my records. Then I had a carotid doppler done. I was told to go on Crestor because I had a blockage and then go for another blood test in a month. I did and have not heard back from them! Looking for another cardiologist. Months ago
in St Augustine,Fl |
I have been seeing Dr C for 2 or more years very good and easy to speak with as well very informative.
St Augustine, FL |
I truly trust all recommendations on my continued maintained health experience.
in St Augustine, FL |
I was referred to Dr. Caracciolo during prep for a surgical procedure in 2013. He was thorough and alleviated my fears and pre-op nerves. An experience I dreaded was warm and reassuring instead. Dr. C is one of my favorite people.
in St Augustine, FL |
Dr, Caracciolo "AKa Dr, C", is a wonderful doctor, very understanding and extremely caring.

Felt as though I was his only patient of the day. Focused on concerns, and offered a protocol to follow for the coming year.
in St Augustine, FL |
Dr. C has been my cardiologist since I had by-pass surgery in 2009. I'm extremely grateful for the top notch care I've received from Dr C and all the staff at First Coast.

The best physician experience period. Listens to me , he is smart but caring. Individualized my treatment for me. I did not feel like just another patient. Takes the edge off with a good but professional sense of humor.
in St Augustine, FL |
I have had some wonderful cardiologists in the past, but Dr. C is the best. He has checked for and found an aneurysm that no one had caught before. I just feel confident in his care and that's a feeling we all want.
Elkton, FL |
Dr. C, as he is affectionately called, is up to date on latest developments. I have read several of the latest updates about heart concerns after he told me. He was ahead of the news. He also asks whether you have any questions. You are not rushed.
in St Augustine, FL |
"Dr. C" has a warm personality and a very caring attitude with his patients. He takes his time to talk to you, to listen and to answer any questions. I applaud his dedication to each patient as individuals and his commitment to serve.

There is no doubt Dr. Caracciolo has extended my life expectancy. I have recovered from an A-Fib incident with his medical guidance.

I wouldn't trust any other heart doctor. Dr. C is a very patient doctor, can joke with his patients to help ease the tense atmosphere (which there aren't any). He cares very much about his patients and their concerns. I try to refer everyone that I know, who has a heart condition, to Dr. C.
