I've been seeing Dr. Popat now for several years. He's very knowledgeable, professional, and always does an excellent job explaining things to me. He went to school here in Tampa and you can really tell he has a passion for helping out the local community. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Popat is a very caring and compassionate physician. He takes the time to answer patients questions, is always very attentive, and never gives the impression that he is in a hurry.

I was fortunate to work with Dr. Popat during my fellowship experience at the University of South Florida. He was one of the nicest teachers I had and took time to explain diseases and procedures to his patients and their families.

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.
