Specialties

Dr. Ali F Aboufares has the following 3 specialties

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

Dr. Aboufares helped save my life

My general practitioner sent me to the hospital Dr. Aboufares was working at with a clear directive to seek his help when my heart rate was extremely high and I knew something was off. Upon my arrival, using his name was the best thing that could've happened. The hospital ER staff admitted me rapidly. I received first class treatment throughout my sudden stay. That included prompt, thorough and accurate diagnosis. My "silent" heart attack become evident to them as well as significant arterial disease. I ended up in the hospital for 2 weeks. Dr. Aboufares' provided superb professional care, including full explanations of my condition and the recommended procedures (to myself and my family.) Dr. Aboufares was patient with my many queries. His referral to the cardiac surgeon was also excellent. Dr. Aboufares also has a caring, calming, encouraging and informative manner. That combination of great skill, concern and compassion is rare. I am blessed to have been referred to him. I continue to trust his judgement as we do follow-up procedures because he is my medical specialist and advocate. My daughter who lives across the country even feels confident when he advises and works on improving my condition when she is unable to be there. Leah and the rest of the staff are very warm, professional and efficient. They even assisted my daughter with getting a predictive CRP reactive test to determine her heart disease risk. We highly recommend Dr. Aboufares to those wish both full information (about their condition(s) and options) and expert cardiological treatment.
