Excellent, analytical cardiologist

Dr Gaba happened to see my echocardiogram in the middle of the night during my diagnostic hospital stay. He recognized the urgency of my situation and immediately started my transfer to a hospital with a heart surgeon where, after performing a couple more procedures he was able to find a damaged mitral valve and two arteries in need of bypassing. I subsequently had open heart surgery. I think his insightful intervention saved my life.

Excellent Physician

Yesterday at 6am my son drove me to the hospital with chest pains and nausea. I'm 74. Dr. Gaba cancelled his other appointments to deal with me and my heart attact that began during the angiagram. 95% blockage in 3 major arteries. Dr. Gaba was thorough and extremely attentive to my problems and was there for over 12 hours with me. I received 3 stints and came home before noon today feeling much better. The care was superb!!
