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 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.

Dr. Caracciolo is very thorough. As a new patient I was impressed that he wanted to do his own heart tests and not just rely on my previous test results or my own novice explanation regarding my heart disease. After my second follow up appointment I left with a sense of comfort in knowing that I can trust Dr. Caracciolo and I believe he is doing everything possible to manage my heart disease. He took the time to explain my test results and answered all my questions.

Dr. C has a way of putting you at ease. He is easy to talk to and you can ask him anything. After I had just come home from from the hospital due to a bleeding brain aneurysm, I had to go to the emergency room for chest pains. Dr. C saw my husband going into the emergency room and inquired why. By the time I got home that afternoon, Dr. C had his office call me to set up an appointment to be sure I was fine. I would recommend him always.
