in Bakersfield, CA |
OUTSTANDING! Dr. Banks has the credentials, but he also has a wonderful personality. He lightens the moment, at a time when your most concerned, for your children. I would highly recommend Dr. Banks to any parent who's child is in need of cardiac care. Office staff was great today, and including wait time, a stress test, follow up with the doc, we were out the door in 1 hr. and 15 min. I'll take that time frame for a doctor visit, and be grateful for it. Thanks Doc!
