I was visiting Texas from the left coast, went to DeTar ER for chest pains and shortness of breath. I was lucky to have Dr. Gaalla as my cardiologist. He explained my options. He scheduled a heart cath for the next morning. Turns out I had 85% blockage in an artery feeding the left side of my heart. Dr. Gaalla inserted a stent, now I feel great. Thank You Dr. Gaalla.

Dr. Gaalla was my cardiologist after heart surgery. He came by to see me several times, even late in the evening to just check in on me. He was very kind and took the time to answer my families questions as well. I usually don't have to wait long to see him on my appointments. When I've had to reschedule there have been no problems. Most of all he's very friendly, positive and encouraging to me to keep myself active after surgery. Hope he stays in the area I can't imagine seeing anyone else now
