  • Dr. Neil Sanghvi“Dr. Neil Sanghvi is extremely professional, but at the same time friendly and approachable. A great listener, which should be a prerequisite for every doctor. Excellent staff! I have fired a couple of doctors for having unorganized and discourteous staff, so this is very important to me. Great folks all around, would highly recommend to all.”

  • “The staff members of First Coast Heart and Vascular Center who assisted me at my first visit were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Felicia always has a smile on her face and will gladly answer any questions I may have.
    On my second visit I had a venous test and I was very nervous. Towanna was incredible; she kept me engaged in conversation which helped to calm me down. She also explained what she was doing during the procedure.”

  • Dr. Neil SanghviMy experience with Dr. Neil Sanghvi was excellent!  After almost a decade of a periodic rapid heartbeat, he was able to restore my heart rhythm to a normal rhythm.  His plan of treatment, surgical team and patient interaction was superb.  I would highly recommend both his surgical expertise and patient rapport.

  • Dr. Dinesh PubbiAs a 30 year old man I did not expect that I would have heart problems but God decided to test me with low pressure in my heart chamber.  I am so happy that I first was introduced to Dr. Vincent Caracciolo who in turn introduced me to Dr. Dinesh Pubbi.  Dr. Pubbi has been treating me ever since.  Dr Pubbi has been a superb doctor and treated me better than any other doctor ever has before.  I was and still am very scared about having heart issues but knowing that Dr. Pubbi is treating me helps me so much more to deal with my medical issues.  Dr. Pubbi has always returned my calls, emails, voicemails and messages immediately.  Much faster than any other doctor has in the past.  I normally do not recommend doctor services but I highly recommend First Coast Heart.

  • Dr. Vincent CaraccioloDr. Caracciolo, We want to thank you for your time today during my first appointment with you and your kind staff. It was truly a pleasure from the entrance into your office. The staff was friendly and helpful at all levels and you went beyond my expectations. Your down to earth, caring and friendly approach was exactly what I was looking for. I liked the diagnosis approach to find and seek to meet my particular needs rather than a shotgun approach. Thank you for everything and you gave us confidence and hope for the future. I will have the work you ordered completed Monday and I will see you next Friday for a follow up.
