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!
