He was courteous and professional in every way. In the cath lab he took his time to check it all. Then he called my Doctor and discussed what he had learned from the cath. After the cath, he met with my family and left them with full knowledge of what he had found. He did the cath through the arm.

Loved the care I received from Dr. Pineda, over the last year they have changed their operations and i havnet seen him. The Nurse seems to panic easy and applies unwanted tests and medications. Not happy with that.

Dr Pineda was terrific. He saw how nervous I was prior to my heart procedure so first thing he did was to put me at ease. He explained the entire procedure to me and as I was awake during it he spoke to me to keep me calm. If you are having any chest pain issues this it the doctor to see. Thank you Dr Pineda!
