Dr Morales is very patient. He never seems that he is in a hurry to get you out of there. He returns phone calls in a timely manner. No wait time for appointments. My husband is a patient of his and if ever I need to see a heart doctor I will definitely see him. We have confidence in him and I would recommend him to everyone. We love him.

Everyone in this office is friendly, professional, knowledgeable and helpful. Dr. Morales is the best--he patiently explains what's happening, and allows enough time for any questions. My only complaint: I was called NINE times to confirm my upcoming appointment! Too much!

I was referred to Dr. Morales. I was extremely nervous anticipating "WHAT! I am going to a cardiologist!!" I worked for years in nursing and I have to tell you since we moved to Southern Arizona, we have had challenges finding Docs who look you in the eye and genuinely seem to care about the patient.... Docs who understand that the patient is NOT just another number. Docs who express candid concern when needed and joy when the concerns are not necessary. I met Dr. Morales and all I could think as I drove home after my appointment, was "I have worked with many various doctors over the years, and this is the Doc (finally!) who gets it all..... he grasps the patient's anxieties and needs and addresses them in a comforting manner. Well, that was this patient's experience and I hope it will guide some others' decisions when a cardiologist is needed.
