My Approach to Care

As I studied cardiology I became fascinated with the heart's electrical system. Helping people with fast or slow heart rates is something that I really enjoy, and it allows me to work with people of all ages and backgrounds. When I meet with patients, it's important to me to make sure that whatever we decide in our plan of care, that it's based on information sharing and joint decision making.

Every patient is unique, and what works for one person may not work for another. Making care and treatment decisions together usually results in much better outcomes.

I was very impressed with Dr. Kapalis. He explained. Everything to me very well, and my husband was there, and he felt the same way. And the questions we had, were answered right away and in a way that we could understand it. Thank you.

I am new to having issues with my heart, and so I was pretty nervous and had a bunch of questions. I was completely at ease and walked out of that office, confident and sure of our next steps. I would recommend Dr.Kapalis any time.

I was probably the last appointment for the day, so they were very late coming in. But I really appreciated the fact that they did not rush me and gave me all the time and attention that I needed even though it was late in the day. Thank you.

Yes, I like Dr. Kapalis. He did a great job. First time. I met him he seem to know everything about me. He straightened out my defibrillator pacemaker. I haven't had any problem with his test. I would highly recommend anyone that I know to come and see Bryan Heart.

Dr. Kapalis is awesome!!!! So knowledgable and caring.
March 11, 2021
I came to my appointment with a list of 6 question. Dr. Kapalis came into the room and began visiting. by the time he asked if I had any questions for him, he had already covered 3 of my concerns. Dr. Kapalis is very intent, presents facts clearly, and walks you through the procedure that is being suggested. Also what I liked is the way he speaks up, loud and clear. My hearing isn't the best but I felt I never missed a word. Good and caring Dr.
