Dr. Baban saved my husband’s life and I will forever be grateful to her. She listened to his story of what he was feeling and what brought him to the ER and found a blocked artery during the angiogram. She was very compassionate and patient with me. She clearly explained the procedure and answered all of my questions. I highly recommend her!

Really 5 stars is not enough! If I could leave 100 stars, I would! I have been a cardiac patient with annual visits to my Cardiologist for the past 30 years. When my Cardiologist retired, I was devastated. Having visited over 7 Cardiologist and sadly disappointed, I was ecstatic when I found Dr. Baban. Not only is she a wealth of updated knowledge, she heals with her compassion, grace, and humanity. That is the best medicine no health care provider can prescribe. She is a natural and truly cares for her patients. I am extremely happy with her and the entire office for their professional care and manner. Thank you Dr. Baban and entire team for your services.

I receive exceptional health care from Dr. Baban. She is very concise and straightforward. Options of treatment are always clearly described. I especially appreciate our dialogues (as opposed to monologues) regarding health treatment. My highest recommendation to anyone requiring cardiology care.

Dr. Baban properly diagnosed me. She is by far the best doctor I have ever had. I would and did trust her with my life. I owe her my life and will never stop thanking her. Besides her great skill and knowledge, she really listens and cares - a rare quality for cardiologists.

The Baban has been my cardiologist for about a 18 months now. I like that she takes the time to listen to you and she explains everything to you in terms you understand and asks for your feedback on any plan on action. She has an excellent staff that is friendly and professional. I can say enough good things about Dr Baban and he staff.

I have been a patient of Dr. Baban for a bit over a year now. I was initially referred to her because my primary care doctor had noticed a strange heartbeat. My first visit and every subsequent visit to Dr. Baban has been as good as anyone could hope for. She is very professional, an exceptional listener, intuitive and very detail oriented.

Two days ago I had a procedure performed by Dr. Baban at Palomar hospital. She is very skilled and did much to make this patient comfortable. The angiogram went smoothly and the entire team worked well together. There were no complications.

Most unhelpful staff I have ever had the misfortune of dealing with! Doctor is not even recognized by Graybill. Instead of being accommodating her staff was intentionally obstinate. Any time a doctor's staff is purposefully obstructive its a good reason not to expect much from the physician... Waste of time!
