He treats my husband and I both as patients with respect and dignity, explaining steps clearly along the way! He has a very warm bedside manner which can make friends out of just about anybody. I also work with him in a professional category as I am employed at the hospital where he treats patients! I have never seen him without a smile on his face! As an advocate for my disabled husband he listened when I had some major concerns about my husband and I KNOW he really, truly cared and listened! He works alongside my husbands other MD's to make sure every area is taken care of! I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Gobal!

I am so lucky to have ended up under the skillful, creative and nurturing care of Dr Gobal after being hospitalized for a mild heart attack. He made sure there were no stones unturned in the diagnosis and treatment of my condition. Dr Gobal was immediately accessible when I had a problem after going home and completely included me in all healthcare information and decision making.

I’m so grateful that Dr. Gobal was working the night of my heart attack due to a tear in my artery. He is an exceptional Doctor with so much knowledge and expertise, if it wasn’t for that along with his experience I may not be here today. I thank God that Dr. Gobal is blessing people who are in need especially in an unexpected emergency. If I could shout from the rooftops I would tell everyone that if they are looking for quality care, knowledge and a Man of his heart to look after yours I would. He is the best of the best!

Dr Gobal has a gift for medicine. He seems to allways find the right treatment for my current health issues. His knowledge and expertise finds the right treatment every time. Not many have that gift. He also is a kind person who really cares about us his patients. I hear it all the time from not only people who he treats but from staff at the hospital I find myself from time to time. All the doctors and nurses tell me what a special docor, no person, he is. Highline has a great doctor. We both are lucky....

Dr. Gobal is a very caring, understanding, patient doctor. When I was taken to the hospital by a medic unit, Dr. Gobal met me in the entrance of the emergency room, and escorted me in. After checking me, he told me the game plan, which included me going to the 'cath lab' first thing the next morning. Everything happened just as he said it would. I was very comfortable with him & his team. Not the least bit anxious. Dr. Gobal came to my room at least twice a day to see how I was feeling.

I came into the hospital from the ER for cardiac issues. I was very impressed with his bedside manner. I asked a lot of questions and he sat down and talked with me. He was very thorough. I found out he was the cardiologist a friend saw over a year ago who had a heart attack and stent. He was very pleased as well. He’s excellent in my opinion.

Never met a doctor that makes me feel so confident that I was in good hands. His warm greetings and welcoming attitude made me feel that he cares about me. I was confused due to sudden loss of consciousness and Dr. Gobal was so concerned that he made sure I get immediate attention. I had angiogram that went flawlessly and Dr. Gobal promptly followed up with me by phone. Thank you, Dr. Gobal. I admire you very much

My elderly father was taken to the emergency room with heart issues. Dr. Gobal was the cardiologist on staff that evening. He was very patient with my dad who was very confused as to what was happening to him and made sure that my brother and I were kept informed about everything that was going on with Dad. Dr. Gobal's concern for our Dad was not just related to his heart condition but his mental health as well. We feel very blessed to have Dr Gobal and his staff to care for our Father.

I have had many physicians in my life. Only 2 of whom can I speak of as highly as Dr. Gobal. I first met him when he dismissed me from the hospital in 2014. His high level of professionalism was immediately apparent. Dr. Gobal became my local cardiologist in 2014 after my having had advanced treatment in Memphis, TN. He is a patient listener, never in a hurry, always available by phone and has a superior bedside manner. He would certainly be an asset to any fine cardiology practice.
