Patient Comments (4)
San Antonio, TX |
I am extremely thankful to Dr. RICARDO Garza, MD cardiologist! He has been helping my daddy through his heart disease for 2 decades! His conservative, thoughtful, knowledge based, and of course patient based approach is exceptional. I thank him for for not having a cookie cutter approach to his plan of care! He listens, and although is a cardiologist, he treats the whole person and family unit.
Great personable individual. My wife an I can ask "101 questions" and he is more than happy to answer each and everyone of them! He is very detailed and thorough with the results of my diagnostic exams.

Dr. Garza knows how to listen to you. He is the first cardiologists I have seen that wanted to hear my complete history before he began with his specific questions and exam. After all of the initial issues and exam was completed, he gave me his opinion of the testing and diagnostic work up that was indicated. Example: I had been referred for a Cardiac Catheterization and he believed I should have non-invasive testing first. I did have an echocardiogram that was normal. He's the best!

Dr. Garza gave me the care I needed when no one else in the hospital seemed to care. Very professional but also very approachable. Very knowledgeable and share it with his patients.
