Dr. César Molina, a Yale graduated, is a qualified, trustworthy, caring and excellent cardiologist. I felt that I can trust Dr. Molina’s expertise. He is very thorough, asking me about the medical history of members of my family, and has compassionate bedside manner. He was caring, personal and cordial with a warm smile. Dr. Molina explained my condition well, clearly and in details, showing an exceptional medical knowledge. He thoroughly answered all my questions, and took the time to address all my concerns. It is very clear that he deeply cares, and is truly interested in the well-being of his patients. Dr. Molina also gave me advices how to better take care of myself, and provided guidance how to avoid stress. All members of his staff are also professional, efficient, friendly and caring. I am deeply thankful to all of them. Dr. Molina is an excellent, exceptional, knowledgeable cardiologist and a truly caring human being. Time at his office was well-spent time!

Dr. Molina saved my life. I had several incidents such as collapsing. Tests and doctors had no explanation. On a friend's recommendation, I went to Dr. Molina. He listened and investigated thoroughly before an exam; then compassionately explained that I had a condition since birth, never detected. It was life-threatening and needed immediate surgery. Tests revealed he was 100% correct and now, post-surgery I have a better quality of life and a life! His care, attention & expertise are unmatched.

Walked in for Annual Physical & they started to do EKG. I'm NOT a heart patient and have no cardio issues so I declined it. Then Dr Molina came (1.5 hour late) and chastised me for refusing. Did a very rushed exam, skipped many of the routine annual tests I'm accustomed to(are required?). Didn't discuss the blood work ordered by him. I contacted his office & told them I felt "cheated" Later I got a bill for $1,000 for having discussed other medical issues. TERRIBLE bedside manner &HORRIBLE bus.

If you're looking for a dr who pushes drugs and doesn't listen to his patients then he might be good. He's not at all interested in helping the patient with root cause of illness or think outside of his Rx pad.
