Care Philosophy

"My patients are all different, and I enjoy getting to know them and their interests,"states Dr. Padilla. "Knowing my patients helps me to provide treatment options that they would choose – it's the patient's choice – my job is to give them all the information.I realize that I can't force patients to do anything – I can only encourage and recommend.I also rely heavily on primary care physicians' input and information about their patients,as they usually have had a longer term relationship with a patient. I view primary care physicians as part of the cardiac team."

in Long Beach, CA |
He never rushed my appointments, he and Maria ,his nurse always went way above my expectations in my care. They always called me back, no matter what time of day or night and most important I know their concern was genuine ! If I were asked to refer any family member of mine or anyone else that I truly love I would refer them to Dr. Padilla. Elaine Lakin
