  • Dr. Neil Sanghvi“Dr. Neil Sanghvi is undoubtedly one of the best doctors I’ve ever worked with. Polite, professional, and patient, not to mention highly skilled, I’d wager good money that he’s one of the best doctors in the country. He asks and answers questions without seeming like he just wants you to accept whatever he’s decided, and knows how to use the patient as a resource, instead of just relying on tests. The whole experience (I’d like to give a shout out to the amazing First Coast Heart &Vascular Center staff!) was outstanding!”

    Outstanding Electrophysiologist
  • Dr. Kevin Hayes“Dr. Kevin Hayes saved my life !!! I came in because of a slight burning in my center chest area two weeks prior and he LISTENED to me, the EKG and Stress test were showing normal but when I described the cool/burning (almost like icy hot cream was on my chest) effect I was having and my family history. Dr. Hayes chose to listen and took aggressive action to do a heart catheter and they found that my left anterior descending artery was 85% blocked! Dr.Van Crisco did the Catheter & inserted the stent.Great job guys, thank you from my Heart!!”

    My Cardiologist saved my life

    Dr. Van Crisco“My mother (97) was referred by her doctor, Dr. Peter Saliba, to Jacksonville Cardiologist, Dr. Van Crisco after Dr. Saliba examined my mother’s legs and knew she needed to see a vascular Doctor. Dr. Saliba’s office called and explained the situation and we were told to come right over and they could see her. We were taken care of completely that day, including all ultra sound tests and a diagnosis of a blood clot. Dr. Crisco explained her condition, what steps needed to be taken, gave me options, and advice. Very professional.”

  • Dr. David Grech“Always considered Dr. David Grech to be a very sociable doctor who clearly and concisely explains your diagnosis and answers any and all questions. I had occasion to be admitted to hospital emergency recently with a completely separate but serious problem, but he was the first doctor to visit me the next morning, and explained what was going on. He also popped in to see me the next day, and it made me feel that he really cared. Outstanding man.”

    Outstanding Cardioloist
  • Dr. Caracciolo best patient friendly manner

    “Dr. Vincent Caracciolo is the kind of doctor that listens and rules out everything to make sure you are alright! He has a good bedside manner and you know you are in good hands!! Would recommend him to anyone that wants to know the truth about their medical condition which triggered their visit to Dr. Caracciolo. He is the most professional person I have ever met that puts things in a very special way that an average person would understand. He’s just the best. I’m so proud to have him as my Cardiologist and I sleep better and have a greater quality of life thanks to his gift from above that cures all of us. Thank you Dr. Caracciolo.”

  • Dr. Dinesh Pubbi“Outstanding patient physician relationship. Dr. Pubbi has a great ability to explain medical information in layman’s terms so that his patients can understand. He the extra time to ensure I understand the status of my health.  God has given this man an incredible talent and he is using it to help patients in need of cardiac care. His office staff is very pleasant and helpful.”

  • Dr. Neil Sanghvi“Finding a new doctor is not always easy, but I was fortunate. Dr. Neil Sanghvi has been very easy to talk to and understands my goals as far as my heart and overall health is concerned. My feeling is that we are working in partnership – a rare situation in these days of sometimes rushed medicine. I have never felt rushed or that my questions were not important, and he has always taken as long as it takes to get the job done. I am pleased to call Dr. Neil Sanghvi my doctor.”

  • Dr. Kevin Hayes

    “Dr Hayes is a great doctor. He listens, he cares, and he’s always on the side of the patient. Whether it be cost factors, time concerns, or future treatment, he’s clearly dedicated in assisting the patient with their concerns and future needs.”

  • 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.”


    Happy Cath Lab Patient

    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.

    – Happy in Palm Coast

    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.”

    Dr. Neil Sanghvi and Staff

    Dr. Dinesh Pubbi“The Cardiac team at First Coast Heart & Vascular Center in Jacksonville, FL is the best. They take their time and don’t rush you here and there. They explain things and don’t get bothered by you asking questions.  I am happy to come here every time to see the staff and Dr. Dinesh Pubbi.  I believe he cares a lot about me and my heart.”

  • 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.
