  • Dr. David GrechDr. David Grech is a great cardiologist and is always very pleasant which makes him easy to communicate with about my concerns. He really takes time to listen to what his patients say and answers questions in great detail. He is very thorough with patient history and family history. He is also very meticulous about explaining every test and the results of each test. He is also very good at putting a person who is scared about their condition at ease. I have to also add that the nurses and other staff members are excellent.

  • Dr. Kevin Hayes
    Valued Patient Doctor Relationship
    “I first met Dr. Kevin Hayes in 2013 at Memorial Hospital where I had been admitted with viral pneumonia. I stayed in the hospital for 5 days with Dr. Hayes treating my condition. I had trouble breathing and I was coughing but no fever; after various tests I was diagnosed with COPD. Dr. Hayes was key in getting me under the care of a lung doctor. I value his opinion and look forward to maintaining our patient/doctor relationship…..”

  • Dr. David Grech“Dr. Grech saved my life. He is brilliant.  I contacted Dr. David Grech for a second opinion. The first cardiologist totally misdiagnosed me. I was on medications that were dangerous and harmful to me since I did not have the condition that I was previously diagnosed. Dr. Grech was professional,kind and thorough. He carefully reviewed all my tests, every page of (2) 24 hour holter monitors. I was feeling very ill from the anticoagulants and cardiac medications I was taking, I feel he saved my life. Totally recommend Dr. Grech.”

  • Friendly Jacksonville Cardiologist“From the very first introduction of Dr. Kevin Hayes I felt as though I was in the company of a “Friend” not my cardiologist. Our time spent never seems rushed or hurry hurry !! He always takes time to explain what is going on, and in terms that I can understand, and if not, he makes sure I do understand. No one enjoys going to the Doctor, not even me. But I do enjoy and look at it as a visit when I spend time with Dr. Hayes. Besides being well trained and knowledgeable Dr. Hayes is a true human being who shows personal interest in his patients and makes you feel comfortable. I highly recommend him!”
