Dr. Maria T Aristigueta has the following 2 specialties
- Pulmonary Disease
A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.
- Critical Care Medicine
Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.

I have been a patient of Dr. Aristigueta for several years and have been pleased with the care I have received. With her help I have been able to successfully deal with medical issues that had gone overlooked and untreated for years. She has always responded quickly to questions or concerns despite her hectic schedule.
I found her to be rude! She had no bedside manner when I saw her. Cold personality. She made me feel like a slug when I told her I had stopped using my CPAP years ago because I did not have the symptoms I had back then, AND I had lost weight. She assured me I had sleep apnea without getting the sleep study. A split sleep study was scheduled. I was told for the sleep study I should do everything I would have done at home. I arrived with mp3 player and a puzzle book. The admitting tech was cold and rude. She told me, "No TV, no reading material and no MP 3 player. VERY bad experience. Threw me into a panic attack, which I had not had for a while. I would never recommend this Dr to any patient. If you are referred to her, Ask for someone else. Honestly, Dr Aristigueta is NOT the Dr you want. The test revealed I had NO sleep apnea But I did experience a low oxygen reading, which I attributed to the stress that was placed on me at admitting. The atmosphere for the sleep study was cold--a hospital examine room with a bed. NOT conductive to good sleep! How does a Dr diagnose without doing the test, first? A good Doctor does not do that! She needs to go back to school and learn compassion in dealing with patients!
The staff and system this office uses is kept separate from the rest of the Hospital. It is slow, unorganized, has poorly trained help and takes forever to get an appointment. Dr. Aristigueta is a very caring person but by the time you actually get to see her after dealing with everything else you don't care.
