I was referred by my cardiologist because Dr. Gallegos was to be backup for my cardiologist on doing a mitrial clip procedure in Oct 2020. He disagreed with the the cardiologist and wanted to do a different procedure. 4 months later due allegedly to a health condition I had and mess I was taking for it, he delayed. His staff scheduled me for test after test. Then once the procedure was scheduled, the nurse informed me that I needed 2 more tests on top of 3 other tests this week due to having covid a month ago. When I called his nurse with a question and told me my procedure had been bumped by other patients who had their tests already completed. When I confronted her because she had assured me earlier in the week my tests results would be back to the doctor in time for the procedure. For confronting the nurse, I was kicked out of the practice.

He is brilliant, kind, listens, takes time to teach and explain. Connects with the patient as a person. He is the best heart doctor I’ve had over the past 20 years. Probably the reason I have survived.

Dr Groban saved my life. I had been mis-diagnosed for quite some time and he saw me in ER and found I had endocarditis (infection in heart) and it had ruined a valve that I was unaware had a birth defect. He is not only a good doctor, he is a good person that treats his patients like they are individuals. He listens and he explains and lets you participate in medical decisions. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Hearing you need open heart surgery is so scary! Meeting Dr. Gallegos and covering my treatment plan, gave me hope that I would be so much better post surgery. He willingly answered questions, covered options and listened. Highly recommend!

Dr. Lovell explains things very thoroughly. He is kind, patient and genuinely cares for his patients. I feel quite confident in his ability to diagnose and treat cardiac issues.

Ordered angiogram after 15 minute visit. Straight to angiogram. Said wouldnt put stent in anything under 70 percent blockage. Cut inside lining of artery intervening with 60% blockage. Caused spiral dissection. Killed me dead on table. Had to be brought back to life twice. Havent heard from or seen him since. Now i have PVC’s the rest of my life and 4 stents. New cardiologist saw video Said no blockage. Procedure unnecessary. Breathing issue was allegies. Left arm pain was pinched nerve in neck

Great guy! I had some strange persistent symptoms. He saw me and immediately sent me through several diagnostic procedures. He followed up personally at the end of a long day of tests. He is very easy to talk to and I can tell by his demeanor he cares about his patients. I can absoulty recommend him!

Dr. Gallegos performed 4way bypass open heart on me in January 2015. In 2016 so far I have ridden my bicycle 1200 miles (including 320 miles in 4 days - Cincinnati to Cleveland). Enough said.

He was a very good surgeon and provided a high level of care for me, throughout my heart procedure. He was direct, to the point and very thorough, a trait a greatly appreciated in my cardiac surgeon. He got me through a long and protracted procedure and I have made a full and strong recovery. I would recommend him.
