Dr Banchs spent a good deal of time with me explaining my options. His explanation was complete, though complicated. I understood my options well. He guided me, but did not choose a course of action for me (although I tried to get him to). He was patient, caring, and knowledgeable. I could ask no more.

Dr. Banchs is not only a fantastic cardiologist, but is so kind, compassionate, and demonstrates care and concern for me as a person. He takes time to be sure I understand information about my EKG and medicines. All physicians should be so good at not only the medical aspects, but the interpersonal!

Answered my questions and accommodated my schedule for needed procedure. Even worked with me when I changed my mind on procedure and scheduled me earlier then original date. Always able to speak with someone regarding medical concerns and MD gets back with me in timely manner. Really appreciate his compassion and straight forwardness.
