Dr. Heath is one of the most wonderful cardiologist I can think of. He is patient, he listens to you, doesn't make you feel like he is in a rush to get out of your appointment. He also pays attention to what you are saying. I met him in April while in the hospital and when I met him 2 months later at his office, he remembered things that I had told him. I also like that fact that he is an expert with pacemaker, this way I can have everything done in one visit.

Doctor Heath is the best Cardiologist I have ever met. I have been fortunate enough to have had procedures by done by two other Cardiologists and those Doctors were excellent and extremely knowledgeable. When I asked them to refer me to a Cardiologist in the Corpus Christi area, they both referred Dr. Heath. Both of these Doctors had saved my life on two different events because of there extreme knowledge and training. Doctor Heath had taught both of them-enough said! M Bray

I needed a stent and/or surgery but he sent me home after telling me to call him after I had a stroke.
