Specialties

Dr. James A Suero has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiovascular 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.

One Star

I found him very set in his own opinions. Not at all open to a conversation. When I asked for further explanation he became very defensive and rude. It was clear we did not like each other. I left there knowing I did not want that man treating me for anything.

Caring Cardiologist

Dr. Suero is curt, but very thorough. He is caring and compassionate. My first impression was like shock...he doesn't have time for chit chat, but to complete his work. I can see where he may score from someone low for bedside manner, but if you don't take personal, take care of yourself by following instructions, he truly has a caring passionate side. I truly believe he is working on his bedside manner! He is an awesome cardiologist!

Kelly Persson RRT

Very unprofessional with my Mother, in fact Dr Suero was very rude and deeming to her. He provided her shocking news never showed any understanding or compassion. My Mom was totally with it yet asked how long she had dementia she responded to the Dr. I may not be a Dr. however I am not stupid Dr". My Mom was never followed up by this Dr after delivering tragic news. My Mom passed away the next day one of the last things she said was "I do not have dementia". I have worked in the healthcare arena for over 35 years along with multiple other members of my family Dr. Suero's bedside manner is inexcusable he should no longer treat patients but go work on research projects.
