The best!
Dr. Gobal is by far the best doctor I’ve ever had! I get very nervous going to doctors and he has always made me feel so comfortable. He’s kind, caring and thorough. He seems to genuinely care for his patients. This is the only doctor that I don’t get nervous seeing. His nurse is equally as amazing. He’s 10/10 fantastic!

Dr. Gobal examined and treated my husband at St. Anne’s Hospital after he was taken off of a plane that was about to depart. Paramedics at the airport were concerned about a possible heart attack and sent him to St. Anne. We were so fortunate to receive thorough and compassionate care from Dr. Gobal whose expertise in cardiology is renowned. Thank you Dr. Gobal for sending my husband David home in good shape to his Houston cardiologist. And thank you for your thoughtful compassion in educating and supporting me. Janet Thompson

I love Dr. Gobal (and am an existing patient), but I've had issues with the office. I had booked an appointment and the first available was six weeks out. I received an email notifying me that my appointment had been cancelled. When I called to ask what happened I was told someone called me and left me a voicemail that I didn't receive. I was also told I could reschedule for an appointment another month away. I guess it's time to find another provider.

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.
