Dr. Gwinn is an excellent doctor he is very knowledgeable very caring. I would highly recommend him. He is also a strong Christian which is what I want in a Dr., expecially one who is dealing with my heart. I believe I probably would have died if I had not meet Dr. Gwinn.

Dr. Gwinn took great care of my Grand Mother during her senior years. Now my Mother has asked to be a patient of his. Mrs. Emma J Weaver, loved this doctor and he kept her healthy for a very long time. He was very thorough with her care and she listened to him. My Mother has asked me to set her up with Dr. Gwinn and as a family, we all trust him as an excellent Cardioligist. Thank you Dr. Gwin and your entire staff.

Dr Gwinn is a very knowledgeable, and considerate Physician. He listens to what his patients tell him and responds to their concerns. Dr. Gwinn gives appropriate, non invasive tests to patients in his office, and he does this without scaring a person to death!!!

Actually shook my hand, and spoke to my wife, making sure she understood what was happening. Did not rush out of my visit. Was treated with respect and even though it is a business, everyone treated me as a friend that needed care, and we'll worry about the finances later. I guess he believes in keeping you around for your family, and the rest will work out for all. It was great to feel that the patient is the center of attention. My primary care Dr.'s cardiologist... need I say more.

Dr Gwinn's office was able to schedule a referral from my primary care doctor on the same day. Dr Gwinn quickly identified my problem and spent time explaining the condition and the course of treatment. Dr Gwinn and his staff work very quickly and efficiently.

Very competent and focused on the urgency of treating time sensitive issues.Has a down to earth explanation to questions you have.
Dr. Gwinn had left the office by the time it was our appointment time. We did not know this until we were back in the waiting room. We had to see his PA instead, who was unfamiliar with my stepdad's case. She was unprofessional and loud. When Dr. Gwinn called the next day he didn't remember whether he had ordered my step dad to keep taking his medication or not. Altogether a very unpleasant experience. Plus the office sent us equipment that was for the wrong patient.
