I have always been pleased with the level of care provided by Dr. Munoz. I have always been particularly pleased with the fact that there is not an unusually long wait time. The intake staff is very efficient and quite personable. I get the distinct impression that he is genuinely interested in my health concerns and that is much appreciated. Finally, he listens!

Knowing Dr. Munoz now for 2 decades, nothing has changed! Very attentive, takes his time to attend and listens to the problems. Examinations are not just computerized as many doctors of today. If hospitalized you can expect him at the hospital. he answers phone calls and messages a.s.a.p. I personal don't care if i have to wait an hour more after official appointment time, delays occur because every patient is attended to his health condition and sometimes it takes a little more time to get down to the problem, what causes delay after a certain number of patients. I prefer to wait and get the exam done right! Thank you Dr. Munoz and stay the way you are !

The waiting time is unacceptable. Maybe an hour wait which is usually the waiting time with my other doctors. My appointment was for 1:15, I was there before. I was called to the back about 3:12, and waited more than 45 minutes only to see the doctor briefly and I left the office at 4:09. Dr Munoz is an excellent physician and I know he does his best but when you schedule double or triple scheduled appointments on the same day, it does not work. That’s what I was told because the doctor was going to be out of town for the next two weeks???

My last visit on October 7, 2019 was very pleasant. The staff members who were working in the stress test department were very gentle as they proceeded through all the steps that were necessary for the test. I appreciated their concerns.

I first met Dr. Munoz at the hospital (Sierra) and he reminded me of my brother. I really felt more at ease when he told me that I had a very strong heart. He made me feel more better, with those words. My wife and I really enjoy seeing and visiting Dr. Munoz very much. He deserves more than 5 stars. Keep up the good work all of his staff and we highly recommend Dr. Munoz .

My mom has been a patient of Dr. Muñoz for a while now. I am her daughter, and accompany her to these visits. I am always impressed and very happy that Dr. Muñoz takes his time to speak to us. He doesn’t just treat her as a “patient account”, he genuinely cares and gives his best to her. We are so happy w/ his staff, who are also very caring! Thank you Dr. Muñoz for taking care of my mom as if she was your only patient! You are awesome!

I really love Dr. Munoz! He is so nice and takes his time with me and is very caring. I didn’t have to wait long to see him and his staff was excellent. When I was in the hospital a couple of years ago the nurses there loved him and told me he was the best! I don’t doubt that at all! I will always recommend him highly!

Dr. Munoz has been excellent since he became my cardiologist a few years ago. He listens, offers the time needed to review and communicate, and gives advice as necessary. I have already recommended him to new patients who are very satisfied! I've witnessed first hand his ability to schedule urgent visits for new patients, and his support staff is excellent! I use the West side office. Very well run!

I'm new to El Paso so I had no idea what doctor I should call for an appointment. Lucky for me I noticed the building on N. Mesa where Dr. Munoz is located. Strictly by chance I went in and made an appointment with him. Turns out it was my lucky day! I could not have asked for anyone more competent and professional. I feel I am in superior hands with him as my cardiologist........... Tommy Ballard
