Specialties

Dr. Denis Maddox has the following 3 specialties

  • Interventional Cardiology

    An interventional cardiologist has the same training as a cardiologist and they're well-versed in all types of heart disease and how to diagnose heart problems. The difference is that interventional cardiologists have additional expertise and training on specific interventional treatments for heart disease, such as angioplasties and stents. These methods use catheterization, which reduces recovery time as well as scarring after surgery.

  • 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.

  • Bariatric Medicine

    Bariatric medicine focuses on the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity. Bariatric specialists are trained in medically supervised weight loss and the management of obesity as a chronic condition. These specialists are skilled in various disciplines that help patients lose weight and obtain optimal health.
    The field encompasses dieting, exercise and behavioral therapy, anti-obesity medication, pharmacotherapy and surgery. Bariatric specialists might be from surgical backgrounds and perform obesity-related operations or they might be nutrition and hormone focused, prescribing diet and exercise plans as well as weight loss medications.
    Patients defined as obese or having unhealthy Body Mass Indices (BMI) have much greater risk of heart disease, diabetes, asthma, sleep apnea, hypertension, many types of cancer and chronic musculoskeletal problems.
    One subspecialty of bariatrics is the focus on the correlation between obesity and mortality.

One of the best doctor's I regularly see

Dr. Maddox was highly recommended to me when I was seeking a better cardiologist than the one my primary care physician referred me to. In fact, two other of my family members see him regularly as I have a family history of heart issues - father died of a heart attack at 54 (around 30 years ago) and mother had A=fib and had a pacemaker implanted recently. He is a very quiet and humble man, and has been very compassionate and does NOT have the standard doctor ego or condescending attitude. I have been treated by him for 8+ years, and he has me tested with echocardiograms, carotid artery ultrasounds, stress tests, and always follows up on the same day as the testing, which includes an EKG and physical examination. He tests my blood regularly. I would bet a year's paycheck that had my father been a patient of Dr. Maddox and had the current medical technology available, he would most likely lived at least 20 years longer. His medical assistant is great with follow-up also. I've heard some horror stories about other cardiologists in town, and if Dr. Maddox were to retire, I would most likely go to L.A. for treatment.
