Dr. Gowda is very kind and compassionate. He thoroughly explained the cardiac stent procedure he performed on my mother prior to the procedure in terms we could easily understand. Over the course of the past week, my mother and I have had the pleasure of meeting with 8 of the 14 cardiologists associated with Bay Area Cardiology. You are in good hands with this group of cardiologists.
