- Cardiovascular Disease
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.

Dr Stinis is a truly amazing doctor. After seeing three vascular doctors who recommend a bypass surgery on the blocked arter in my leg. A procedure with very high risk factors. My carteologist referred me to Dr Stinis. Dr Stinus reviewed my condition and explained everything in detail including drawings of the area. He then went into detail on how he could correct the blocked artery with a less abrasive procedure by means of an angiogram. I had previousely had this done twice before with a total of six stents installed. However his knowlege and expertise was able to avoid a bypass surgery and resolve the blockage in my leg. I couldn't express just how wonderful I feel about this Doctor. He is truly a professional who really cares about his patients. He restored my quality of life and I owe him my most graitude for that. I have recommended him to my friends as well as my personal physician. Believe me his personality, care for his patients and time he spends explaining everything to you goes without speaking. Thank you Dr Stinus you are truelyvan amazing man and doctor.
Dr. Stinis recently performed heart stent surgery on my father. Other heart doctors diagnosed that it would be fairly difficult to insert any stent into his heart. That's why one of the other doctors referred us to Dr. Stinis, one of the best in the business, if not the best in the US. The operation was a total success; my father ended up having four stents in his heart and he feels rejuvenated. Thanks, Doc!
I really appreciated the way Dr. Stinis explained the procedures he had done on my husband (6 stents) why they were necessary and what the prognosis was. He relieved us both of a tremendous amount of anxiety and returned my husband to his former athletic self - at 80 able to walk for 40 minutes daily and do weight training three times a week. Thank you Doctor to you and all your staff. I have been told that normally my husband's condition would require open heart surgery, but the stents meant that he could return home the same day and resume normal activities almost immediately.
We especially like that Dr. Stinis took the time to sit down after the stent procedure and explained everything. He even took time to draw a picture of how the stents would look if we could see them. Our family member is a 46 year old man with a heart attack and stroke history who discovered a 100% blockage in an artery and saved the patients life no doubt. WE LOVE YOU DR. STINIS !
