Specialties

Dr. Christopher S Massa 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.

needs improvement in bedside manner

bedside manner could be improved. Showing a little more sensitivity to what patients are experiencing, and making them feel like the Dr. cares would be an improvement. Staff is excellent, super nice and professional.

GREAT CARDIOLOGIST!

Dr. Massa is a top-notch Cardiologist who really cares about his patients. The office staff is knowledgable and cordial. The only difficulty I have found is with his telephone system which makes it very difficult to get a response when you need to talk to someone. That said, I certainly wouldn't change Cardiologists for anything... and I'd send my nearest and dearest to him in a second!
