I MADE MY FIRST VISIT WITH DR. KAWALSKY THIS WEEK AND WAS VERY SATISFIED WITH THE ENTIRE PROCESS. HE WAS QUICK TO CONCERN HIMSELF WITH ALL MY PAST MEDICAL REQUIREMENTS AND PROCEDURES. COVERED MY MEDICATIONS, AS WELL AS THE NEED FOR REFILLS AND THEN SET ME UP FOR A EXAMINATION ON CAROTID ARTERIES, ONLY BECAUSE I HAD NEVER BEEN TESTED FOR THIS PROCEDURE BEFORE. HIS NURSE IMMEDIATELY GAVE ME AN EKG, AND HIS ENTIRE STAFF WAS VERY HAPPY TO OBLIGE MY EVERY QUESTION OF INTEREST. THE APPOINTMENT WAIT WAS ONE OF THE SHORTEST I'VE EXPERIENCED IN A LONG TIME. THE OFFICE ENVIRONMENT WAS VERY ROOMY, NEAT AND CLEAN. VERY IMPORTANT AS A RESULT OF COVID-19.

I appreciated all the precautions that was taken to make me feel more at ease about visiting the doctor's office at this time. I was very impressed when I checked out. I was asked to return the ink pen directly to her so she could clean it. I can only remember one place of business that cleaned the check out screen and pen. At another clinic I recently visited, they checked my temp. by touching the scanner to my forehead right after doing the same for the person in front of me. I feel it should have been cleaned after each use. Your practice scanned my forehead without touching the skin which seems much safer.

I've been Dr. Kawalsky's patient for over twenty-five years. He's seen me through by-pass surgery and two angioplasties successfully. I have the utmost confidence in him and his associates and the staff at North Texas Heart Center which I consider a Dallas institution.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kawalsky's for many years. He has guided me and and helped me through years of heart problems. There is no one I trust more with my health. He always makes and takes time for me when I have needed him. I would recommend him to any and all who may need an experienced cardiologist.

Dr. Kawalsky has been treating me for the past 15+ years. He has always been complete in his examinations. With his Stephen scope he detected abnormality in the veins on my neck. Ordered further testing showed that my left side had 70% blockage. He detected an abnormality in the heart and found that one chamber did not fill completely before contracting. It is this thoroughness to detail that sets him apart from others.

I was referred to Dr. Kawalski by a trusted friend. She spoke very highly of him. When I called, I was surprised to receive an appointment so quickly. The staff was very courteous and I didn't have to wait long. Everyone was very professional. I felt confident that I was in good hands. After starting the blood pressure medication I felt better immediately! I was shocked that I felt so good! I didn't realize how untreated high blood pressure had been making me feel so tired and weak. I'm so grateful!!
