Testimonials

Your people are the greatest. I have been seeing Dr. Gomez since he came to Oregon. I made a great choice when I selected him.

Dr. Gomez is always concerned about your well being and life style and answers all questions. Dr. Gomez always puts you at ease and is a straight shooter.

The staff in the office was great and very friendly and nice and caring and just made you feel comfortable and Dr. Gomez is one of the best doctor's ever because he takes the time to really look through the information and asks questions, who he thinks about things, you don't feel rushed out, like he really cares what he does and cares about you.

I have been a patient of Dr. Gomez for several years. He's the reason I'm alive today because of his care and doing the right thing at the right time. Very knowledgeable cardio doctor.

From checking in to seeing the Dr. the staff was very nice to me. Dr. Gomez listened to me on what I had to say and I understood every thing he was telling me. I will be seeing them all again. Thank you all.
