  • Dr. Neil SanghviPatient’s heart is out of AFib  – “Dr. Neil Sanghvi gets my vote. He is very experienced, professional and knows his stuff. He is courteous and takes the time to explain the various procedure options, pros and cons and will answer all of your questions. He returned my heart to normal rhythm which had been in AFib for over a year. This has greatly improved my quality of life. He took care to ensure that I completely understood my condition and the risks and benefits of the various procedures. I felt that I could trust him from the first time that we met. I never felt rushed during an appointment, he always took whatever time was necessary. I highly recommend Dr. Neil Sanghvi.”

  • Dr. Caracciolo best patient friendly mannerDr. Caracciolo the best Cardioloigst in St. Augustine
    “I retired with 40+yrs experience as an RN in October 2015 and moved to St. Augustine. January 2016 I developed chest pain with increasing severity. I didn’t know any physicians in St. Augustine. I chose my PCP from the internet who referred me to Dr. Vincent Caracciolo. Though aware of my background he took the time to explain everything pre/post heart cath. I respect that he didn’t hesitate to call in a 2nd opinion to help me avoid open heart surgery. He cared about me, my needs and the best approach. Bottom line no open heart, I’m fine. He’s the best.”

  • Dr. Van CriscoDr. Van Crisco treated my husband’s PAD (peripheral artery disease). He put another stent in his leg and ballooned out the other arteries. It was the first time we had met him and liked him immediately. He was very straight forward with us and gave me the complete description of the blockages he found in my husband’s leg. He seemed extremely knowledgeable and honest with me. My husband’s leg feels good today which is the first time in about six months thanks to Dr. Van Crisco.”

He gave me time to talk to him and then after the exam and told me what he thought might be my problem and then talked over the next steps to find out the best treatment for me. He always asked if there were any questions before he left.”

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.”
