My husband saw Dr. Pieniek prior prior to having major abdominal surgery in 2020 and 8 months later. He's a very kind and reassuring doctor. He and his staff are very professional.

I've been under Dr. Pieniek's care since the summer of 2019. He has a sweet spirit. I never feel rushed in an appointment. He's obviously experienced and knows the cardiology field. All questions are answered fully. He is kind and caring with no trace of arrogance or haughty manner. Highly recommend him.

Dr. Pieniek goes above and beyond to help his patients! I recently had a situation that was time sensitive. Somehow he was able to schedule me for tests in the hospital the very next morning even though I saw him at 5pm. I appreciate how well and thoughtfully he listens to his patients.

My husband, Tom, has been a patient of Dr. Pieniek's since 1998. The first time we meet Dr. Pieniek was when Tom had been admitted to the hospital with CHF. It was 11:00 PM, we were waiting anxiously to see a doctor and in walked Dr. Pieniek. After the exam he noticed I had a list of questions. He told me he was making rounds and he would be back to answer all of them. I knew then he was an amazing doctor and Tom will tell you Dr Pieniek saved my life! We are forever grateful him.

I have been a patient of Dr Pieniek for almost two years. He came highly recommended to me from my friend who has been a patient since 1998. The care I have received so far has been exceptional in every aspect. He listens to all my questions and takes the time to explain everything in detail to satisfy all concerns. His staff is always very friendly and professional and always returns my call. It's such a comfort to know I have such a caring physician.

I came to him as 2nd opinion for a leaky valve. He explained to me and my husband the nature of the problem, far better than the other cardiologist I saw too! He used drawings and graphics to show me my leaky valve on the ultrasound machine. Definitely recommend Dr. Pieniek!

Dr Pieniek was the on call ER Cardiologist that came to my rescue 15 years ago,April 2001, at Plano Presby. First with my pacemaker implantation, and the aftercare of my heart condition of 3rd degree heart block. For 15 years now Dr Pieniek has listened and addressed my concerns with the necessary testing and medications. I feel better than ever and Dr Pienick gets the credit. Thanks Dr Pienick. !!!!!!
