Dr. Loyalka has been my cardiologist for years now and I can't say enough great things about him. He's very kind, answers all of your questions, compassionate, and top of the line. He makes my bp go down when he enters the room and that has never happened with other doctors.

Amazing Doctor! – Apr 25, 2021
Dr. Loyalka is a fantastic doctor. He was my sister's doctor before me and he saved her life. I have used him for 10-11 years and wouldn't change under any circumstances. He is very compassionate and truly loves his patients. All of my friends are aware of the esteem I have for him.

The office manager is very rude and acted like a Dictator, telling us to leave the office, because we asked why she made allowances for 2 other couples and not for us. She did not like anyone confronting her at all. When asked her to get the Dr., she disappeared into the back room and called security to escort us out of the building. The Dr. took her word without even listening to his patient. This tells me he is in it for the money only and not for the well being of his patients! NOT A GOOD Dr. at ALL!! I Will never recommend to anyone!

It is very rare to meet a doctor who you feel that this person REALLY cares about ME! The time that Dr. Loyalka and his team spent with my father was amazing. We honestly felt like we were his only ones that he had to see that day, as he took the time to explain the entire upcoming procedure and answer all of our questions. We never felt rushed or intimidated. Dr. Loyalka isn’t just an amazing doctor but also an incredible human being. Thank you for taking such great care of my father!
