  • Dr. David GrechCardiologist for the Whole Family

    Dr. David Grech has taken care of my whole family including my daughter, my wife, and myself for several years. We have always been more than satisfied with his care for us. My family have recommended Dr. Grech to quite a few people over the years, and some are now patients of Dr. Grech. He takes the time to listen to me and is genuinely interested in my total wellness. I look forward to my yearly visit.

  • Dinesh Pubbi, MD

    Top notch Cardiologist

    Dr. Dinesh Pubbi installed my defibrillator in August 2010. Since that time I’ve seen Dr. Pubbi on mostly routine visits and found him to be very professional and obviously more than qualified. His bed-side manner is top notch and Dr. Pubbi always takes time to explain things in layman’s terms. He takes as much time to discuss your conditions as one needs. Professional, courteous treatment. Thanks again to First Coast Heart & Vascular Center and it’s excellent team of physicians and staff.”

  • Dr Kevin Hayes

    Extremely Helpful Cardiologist

    Dr. Kevin Hayes made me feel very comfortable and he answered all my questions. I just moved into the area and didn’t know any doctors, Dr Hayes was extremely helpful in getting me other doctors in my plan. All the doctors he recommended called me to set up appointments saying Dr Hayes office called them, this was amazing to me. Dr Hayes and his staff are excellent, I would highly recommend First Coast Heart.”

  • Neil Sanghvi, MDPatient’s Favorite Cardiologist

    “Cardiac care can be extremely scary. Having a doctor that “fits” is vital to your diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. Dr. Neil Sanghvi just “fit” from the very beginning. I was fortunate enough to have been referred to him and would not want anyone else. Unfortunately, I have been given a clean bill of health and only get to see him once a year now. We always remember our favorite teacher or professor……well Dr. Sanghvi is my favorite MD! Put your heart in his hands. You won’t regret it!”

    “I have been seeing Dr. Dinesh Pubbi since my heart attack several years ago when he implanted my AICD device at Memorial Hospital.
