I used to be a patient of Dr. Kalafatic...I don't live in Bronx, NY anymore. I think you might be related to the doctor I used to see. He was much older than you. It's good to know that his offspring took over the practice and that you're offering great medical services too. 😊

He's a great doctor. Very cool. He actually ended up working in the same building as my dentist. Would go to him again.

He was really professional, and helpful. I enjoyed my visit with him.

The wait was maybe 15mins... if that much. He was very thorough. He explained everything in detail and his bedside manner was great! He is very genuine. I high recommend him!

I called the doctor's office just to let him know that I would be 15 minutes late. Once I arrived, I was seen right away by the medical assistant who was very professional and made me feel comfortable on my first visit. Dr. Kalafatic examined me and asked all the right questions. Never was there a rush by either Dr. Kalafatic or his staff. I have scheduled a follow up appointment. 5 Stars all around.

Excellent for immigration medical test fast and the more cheap!! Highly recommend!
Dr. Kalafatic is an excellent cardiologist! Gave me tons of advice on my diet and told me some ways I could be more active during the day, without having to change my schedule too much. I did a full lipid panel and cholesterol test, he recommended some [prescription medication to help lower my cholesterol while also giving me some pointers on keeping things in check naturally as well. Highly Recommended!! Plus he speaks Spanish too! So I'm definitely making an appointment for my mother (who doesn't speak much English) as soon as she gets back from Nicaragua!

I have had two heart attacks in my life, a minor one and a larger one most recently. And following multiple surgeries and a recent move to the Bronx I was in need of a new cardiology specialist to monitor my health. My wife and I visited at least 4 in total, plus the 2 prior back in Cleveland before the move – and I got to say, no one gave me the comfort level I felt with Dr. Kalafatic. He is not only an intelligent doctor, and someone who clearly knows what they are doing with tons of experience – but he’s also just a very genuine person who cares about his patients. He’s never tried to rush us out even when I’ve been late to appointments, he is always making me feel at home, and he’s always offering me advice on things I can do to keep busy and trying to find me ways to stay active and stress free. I’ve already referred family and friends to him and they’ve loved him just as much as we have! Definitely look him up if you need a heart doctor.

I have a family history of heart disease amongst other issues, and its always been something I’ve been worried about but never really did anything about. On my 30th birthday I decided to make an appointment with Dr. Kalafatic, he is by far one of the best cardiologists in the Bronx area. He was very comforting and caring, and was so willing to answer all my questions ancd concerns. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a cardiologist in the city!

I just recently moved to Manhattan and was referred to Dr. Kalafatic by my doctor after having some chest pains and shortness of breath. It was really a great experience, he was so friendly and personable and as worried as I was he really put me at ease about everything…thanks Dr. K!

Being in my 50’s and having had heart issues before, I was referred to Dr. Kalafatic to have a stress test done. He was an absolute professional, his office was nice, and his staff was even nicer. He took time to explain things to me and spent time making some suggestions about certain habits and things I should do to limit stress and just take care of my heart health. Very pleased with the service and I will definitely be visiting him for future appointments.

I had a stroke 18 months ago, and it was one of the toughest points in my life. And recently with my cardiologist retiring my son made me an appointment with Dr. K and I am very glad he did! I have seen many cardiologists over the past few years, and few have the personality and friendly nature of Dr. K. He and his staff are always so nice and unlike other doctors, I rarely ever have to wait long or struggle to make an appointment!

Dr. Kalafatic is a wonderful doctor, and I am very happy to be a patient of his! I’m only in my 20’s but a few years ago during a game of pickup basketball I began getting these terrible heart palpitations and I honestly thought I was going to have a heart attack. After a scary emergency room trip, I made an appointment with Dr. Kalafatic, and he put me through a number of different tests and diagnostics, only to find that I had a semi-serious cardiovascular ailment that had gone undiagnosed throughout my life. This was a terrifying time for me, but thanks to Dr. Kalafatic and his treatment, I’ve made a number of life changes and have been getting better day by day. I really can’t thank him enough, I really feel like he saved my life. Highly recommended.

My husband had a heart attack last year, and he’s in his late 60’s and not in the best shape at all – refusing to quit smoking for years, eating terribly, never paying attention to his health much at all. But thanks to Dr. Kalafatic that has all changed! Within 6 months of being under his care, my husband has quit smoking and Dr. Kalafatic has him on a full diet and weight loss plan. I have no idea what he did to spur this change in him but I am so glad he did, my entire family is so thankful for Dr. Kalafatic.

I got a referral to see Dr. Kalafatic for an echocardiogram and an EKG from my doctor. And while it was just a checkup, because of some issues I was having I must say it was a great experience. Showing up to my appointment early, I never thought I would be seen early! That was a huge plus right from the beginning. Then throughout the time I was there, from the staff to the doctor himself, everyone was friendly and made me feel super comfortable. I have a follow-up appointment for a stress test in a month or so, and I got to say, I’m not dreading it in the least! If you need any cardiology testing done at all, definitely ask about Dr. Kalafatic in the Bronx!

My mother had a stroke 4 years ago, and it took her years to get her movement back and be able to talk 100% but thankfully she’s a lot better now. During that time, she had to be taken to her cardiologist Dr. Kalafatic’s office. And despite her limited mobility and issues with speaking clearly, Dr. Kalafatic and his staff made each appointment an absolute breeze! No hassles whatsoever, I never had to wait long (as I was often on my lunch break at work taking my mom). Thanks Dr. K!
