Dr. Pineda was my daughter's surgeon to close a hole in her heart that didn't close at Birth. My daughter is 48 yrs. old and has multiple health issues. After having a stroke when a blood clot went to her brain they found the hole in her heart. At our orientation appointment Dr. Pineda explained in detail how the surgery would do and answered all our questions and concerns. As Jehovah's Witnesses we do not take blood. Dr. Pineda did an exceptional job in closing the hole without using blood. We would definitely recommend Dr. Pineda to our family and friends.

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!
