Specialties

Dr. Brian M Go has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Arrogance.

By the time I got to Dr. Go my angina was pretty bad. When I came out I had 5 stents. A friend recommended I read Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease. From this book I found I could have in all likelihood been pain free within a matter of a few weeks and could have reversed my condition without the need of intrusion into my arteries which could have led to death and still could someday. I could have done it by going on a plant-based, whole foods diet. It had been proven in studies. I took the book to my first follow up to show it to Dr. Go that he might recommend it to other patients. He told me he already knew about it but didn't tell his patients because they wouldn't do it. Anyone arrogant enough to assume he knows what his patients will or won't do is not someone I can recommend. A doctor should give his patient the known facts and allow the patient to make a truly informed decision.
