Dr. Petro is the best. Period. When I was first diagnosed with heart disease after hospitalization for omental infarction and discovered I'd had previous heart attacks I was pretty low and depressed. He helped me in more ways than treating my heart. He brought me peace. And he's easy on the eyes, too, hehe. Friendly, professional and experienced. He's got it all. 10 out of 5 stars.Posted by:

I was seeing another cardiologist, but was seen by Dr. Petro in his stead for my second office visit. I asked to be reassigned to Dr. Petro. He was so positive about my issue. I left the office walking on air.Posted by:
Put a brother totally at ease with his expertise and experience. I’ve seen and experienced fear but again he put at peace with my imagined Siri ration. Outstanding!Posted by:
