Introduction as I am new to the area. He was attentive, understood the likely cause of my heart issue, did a regional exam, honored my questions with respect. My situation is unusual and complex and he was able to set aside quickly the things that did not fit with the symptoms, and make therapy adjustments. Excellent visit and I a nurse, retired, but appreciate his abilities.

Special Thank You to Dr. Gaba, who made a special trip on his day off, to pop over to see me so I would not need to go to the ER. Thanks for the prompt response and sincere concern for my health.

I was already under the influence of sedatives and my cardiologist sought Dr. GABA to implant my very difficult stents, which he dropped everything and did in a heartbeat. I didn't get to speak to him as he was very busy but this man saved my life. The rest of the criteria here wasn't applicable as I scheduled through my own Dr.
