Resident saw me prior to Dr. Mullens. He answered all my trivial and swimming questions very well and was a wonderful resource. Dr. Mullens is efficient, extremely knowledgeable, speaks as he examines. His recommendation was fulfilled that same day, near my home. Could not ask for more!.

Dr. Castro fixed two problems with me. I am 100% happy and have completely recovered. I had a bad valve and an undiagnosed aorta problem. After fixing the valve, Dr. Castro noticed the aorta problem and repaired that too.

Dr. Saleh never rushes me at our visits. He listens, and makes the most educated care plan that he can with the information that he has. I feel he understands how debilitating living with migraines can be, and when I message him for questions or concerns is always responsive.
