Dr. Gopal showed concern about certain things we discussed and made me feel comfortable moving forward with a surgery that has been recommended that is not connected to my heart. She was very patient and asking me questions to fully understand what I'm facing. She also explained everything relating to my heart and the results of the echocardiogram. She is very supportive.

My last cardiologist took an extended leave and will not be returning to practice. Both my sister and my Internal Medicine physician recommended Dr. Gopal. She had all of my medical records, and had reviewed the ones pertinent to my cardiac care. She was friendly, but professional and thorough. Since I've still been experiencing a couple more cardiac issues, Dr. Gopal has set up some tests in the next 4-6 weeks, with a follow up with her in 8 weeks. I believe that I'm in good hands with her.
