  • Dr. Van Crisco

    I would like to express my appreciation to Dr. Van Crisco for taking such good care of my Dad when he performed a heart cath on him a few weeks ago. Since Dr. Crisco was able to go through his wrist, the procedure was much easier for my Dad than it has been in the past. In addition, I appreciate Dr. Crisco taking the time afterward to show me the films and explain the stenting procedure. This was my Dad’s first surgery with Dr. Van Crisco and we are very happy with the results.”

    Dr David Grech Best Cardiologist

    I recently changed my Cardiologist to Dr. David Grech and it was one of the best decisions I have made. My first visit with him was very comfortable and he put me at ease with his demeanor and bedside manner. He spoke to me in terms that I could understand and I didn’t feel pressured that he had to move on to his next patient. He took up the time with me that I needed to understand and digest my health, diagnosis and his plan for my future care.

    Patient Friendly Cardiologist

    Dr. Caracciolo has about the best patient-friendly manner I have experienced. He listens carefully, asks questions in clear manner and explains situations in an easy to understand way. Dr. Caracciolo seems very learned, and competent. His interest in his patients is exemplary. He even called me at home on a weekend to explain a situation. I am very happy to have him as my cardiologist.

  • 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.
