      Dr. Soriano has been a great cardiologist to our son. He diagnosed him with a double aortic arch and finally gave us the answers to our son's ongoing health problems. He explained everything in detail and was quick to coordinate care with our family doctor. Dr. Soriano has always been available to answer our questions and never seems like he's in a rush.
