I can't say anything bad about them. On the contrary. I am very comfortable with the doctors and hospital. Everything is very good. Thank you very much. Bye.

The reason I have been a long time patient of PIH is, I have ALWAYS been treated with respect and courtesy. By all my physicians and nurses and hospital staff .

At this meeting, I was calm, but nervous, as this upcoming surgery, is of a much, more serious nature. When, we arrived at the front desk...we were greeted and asked to complete an info sheet. The Desk Nurse said the Dr was with a patient and we would be next. Upon completion of the form, we only waited about 10 to 15 minutes for Dr Tovar to be available. Dr Tovar showed us the results of the Angiogram and explained the procedure and showed us the the areas of the intended surgery. He asked if we had any questions...My wife had several questions and I believe I had one...which were all answered. In closing, the office staff was very helpful and efficient. Dr Tovar was very informative and helpful, with our questions.

I found Dr. Tovar is a very nice gentleman, but I also noticed he was on his watch having to keep in touch with hospital and also cope with patients. I feel the man seemed to have a very busy schedule, and I think that when he's seeing patients, it should be a time period when he is not going to be still involved with the hospital, which of course, he is involved with patient's that he dealt with that day. I feel Dr. Tovar is overworked in some ways. That's my opinion. Be safe. Thank you.

10-20-21 5:00 pm. Dr Eduardo Tovar Was Most Professional, Generous and Compassionate in his Explanation and Educating me about my [PHI removed], and The Pending Surgery he States is Required, (No other Viable Options Apparently-) I Intuitively Felt Confidence and Assurance in His Skill and Certainty as A Skillful, State of the Art, Medically Currant , Surgeon and Physician! Unfortunately I did not receive any word on "the Risks" for me - as involved with my Pending Surgery and Lengthy Recovery! - Something my Family, Business Managers. & Associates are asking. I look forward to the fast track with this most Wise and Capable, State of the Art, Cutting Edge -Surgeon ! [PHI removed]
