Excessive wait time was due to an unexpected event that required Dr. Gopal\'s attention. I totally understood the reason for the delay and have no real problem with it but I had to check with the receptionist after a long wait to discover the reason instead of being told there was a timing problem.

The Dr. is very nice and seems to know his field well. The staff is friendly and worked to schedule tests but it takes longer to get the tests than expected for potentially serious conditions. Also, it is hard to get them on the phone sometimes.

This is a heart doctor, so the test results and discussions are important. It is difficult to discuss some of the test results and their impact on the heart. Dr Gopal is excellent at using molded props to explain complicated tests on the heart and vessels. I always get a good explanation for all my questions.
