Dr. Gobal is gifted in both his approach to cardio health and patient centered skills. I feel blessed to have him as my Cardiologist.
in Renton, WA |
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.

He listened and addressed each issue I brought to his attention,involved my family at my request,and never failed to greet me warmly.There was never a problem contacting him about any problem.I was at ease and very comfortable with Dr. Gobal.
in Jonesboro, AR |
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.
in Jonesboro, AR |
I cannot speak highly enough in regards to Dr. Gobal. Not only was he continually respectful, courteous, and willing to answer questions about my condition; he went out of his way to help with the costs of prescriptions. Dr. Gobal saved my life. When I had the opportunity to thank him for all the he had done, he replied Fixing you is my reward, no Thanks necessary... Wonderful physician!!
in Jonesboro AR |

in Van Buren, MO |
I would highly recommend Dr Gobal. He took his time with me, listened to all concerns I had, explained how to work on correcting the problem. He has a great bedside manner. I first met him in the hospital and I have seen him in his office. He wasn't in a hurry in either situation. I was told to call anytime that I had questions or concerns. His office staff is also very helpful.
in Doniphan, MO |
Dr. Gobal was a wonderful listener. He looked me in the eyes and gave me time to speak. He asked me questions about what I was experiencing, and explained everything I should expect before my procedure. He treated the nurses and staff with the same respect and consideration he showed me.
