Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Almanza and his staff are very knowledgeable, friendly, and caring; he explains everything very carefully and clearly. He is the best of three cardiologists that my wife and I have had. God bless his and his staff.

I saw him on 8/16/16 for first time and I was not comfortable with him and this Cardio Center. Dr. Almanza was running all over. Too many patients. He told me at my asking that he sees about 25 patients/day. He spent 20 min. with me and ordered 3 tests. I cancelled them and won't see him again....more
