Dr. Jeffrey M Schussler has the following 2 specialties
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.
- Nuclear Cardiology
Rooted in general cardiology, nuclear cardiologists specialize in a specific, non-invasive imaging technique that's used to diagnose heart disease, evaluate how well your heart is pumping blood, or determine the size and place of a past heart attack.
They’re able to take pictures and video of your heart during stress tests, and in resting states, that allow them to diagnose patients as well as recommended treatments, medication and additional testing that might be needed. They often work closely with radiologists to assess the damage of a past heart attack or the patient's risk for future heart attacks.

Dr. Schussler was an HOUR late showing up for my Nuclear Stress Test that my cardiologist Dr. Robert Rosenthal had suggested as he had noticed a glitch in my EKG. I was told this is the most INFORMATIVE test one could have. So when Schussler reported it was NORMAL, I trusted the findings. I continued to have chest pains but assumed they were either panic attacks or a pulled muscle. Six days later they got so bad, I called an ambulance at 3am and was taken in to the emergency room where it was determined I had a heart attack. HOW could this be, I kept asking to a litany of I don't really know. I had to have a stent procedure. It was in part of my heart that had been previously operated on. I don't know as no ONE from this Cardiology group is calling me back. I could have easily died. Even my other half was suggesting I NOT go to the emergency room because HOW COULD THIS TEST BE WRONG. And just to be clear........I PROBED DR. ROSENTHAL when he told me the test was normal. I asked he TWICE.........NORMAL ...but what Dr? ........NORMAL ...what else did it say Dr.??? Just NORMAL. It turns out the Cardiologist doesn't read the test just the word NORMAL typed on a sheet. PEOPLE should think twice before having this Doctor read a report or diagnose an illness. And while they may think they can simply ignore my calls and brush this under the table, they are far from wrong.
