Testimonials

"I would refer him in a heartbeat"

Dr. Popat was very very easy to talk and answered all my questions without making me feel dumb or like I should already know, very good bedside manners. I would refer him in a heartbeat ❤️❤️

"Extremely personable"

Staff was very friendly and helpful. It is a pleasure being part of this practice. Dr. Popat is extremely personable, he takes the time to listen to your concerns and explain his plan of care. It’s important to feel that your doctor actually cares. He took very good care of me in the hospital and I will stay with him for future care.

"I highly recommend him"

Dr. Popat is an amazing cardiologist. I highly recommend him.

"Very impressed"

I met Dr. Popat while in Florida Hospital and really liked him. I have been seen in his office twice and am very impressed. His medical assistant, Alyssa, is excellent. She asks a lot of questions and seems very interested in keeping my chart up-to-date and keeping me informed about my care. She always returns my phone calls. I know I always have a lot of questions for Dr. Popat, but he always takes the time to answer them and doesn’t seem to mind answering them.

"A care plan that is optimistic, doable and goal oriented."

I had the pleasure of meeting with Dr. Popat today after he had performed a stint procedure last week. What a delightful experience. Very professional, caring and interested in my particular situation. My husband has already elected to change his cardiologist for his next appointment. I highly recommend this gentleman - he immediately put me at ease with a care plan that is optimistic, doable and goal oriented.

"Dr Popat has a very good bedside manner."

Was referred to Dr Popat through my family physician after an abnormal EKG. Dr Popat has a very good bedside manner. Spends time with the patient explaining things. I was scheduled to have hip surgery which was eventually delayed pending the results of a heart cauterization. I often have anxiety when undergoing medical procedures. Dr Popat worked with me to reduce my anxiety and get me through the heart procedure. It is rare to find a physician or specialist with such good "people skills". I highly recommend Dr Popat for any heart related issue/procedure.
