Dr. Gregory M Gustafson has the following 3 specialties
- 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. Gustafson has done diagnostic angioplasty of my heart once and has put stints in one of my Arteries twice since 1994. My last angioplasty and stint was last Summer. He spent more than two hours cleaning the blockage in my artery and put two new stints to keep it open. I felt no pain during the procedure, my shortness of breath hs gone, and he gave me an education about artery blockage. He talked with me as he cleaned my artery, and once he even showed me a piece of the fat that he had taken out of my artery. He me while I was in the recovery room and showed me pictures of my artery before and after opening the blockage. I once talked to him about the medicine I was taking. He suggested a different medince which has lowered my cholesterol.Dr. Gistafspm has been pleasant every time he has seen me.Once when I was in the recovery room, a patient across the room from my bed needed a urinal and was calling a nurse to bring it to him. No nurse was around at that moment. Dr. Gustafson was passing through and heard the patient. He found a urinal, brought it to the patient and said to him with a smile,"Here it is. I am a full-service doctor." He and we the patients laughed.Dr. Gustafson has given me the best care. I thank him for it.
