Dr. Mario J Mangas 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.
- 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.

I was totally impressed with this office!! From the moment I walked in to the moment I left, everyone at this office was professional, courteous and very well informed. Dr. Mangas was extremely thorough in his examination. He took his time with me, explained everything he was doing. Explained every single test his staff would be doing and the reason for each test. He met with me after getting the results of the tests, explained each and every result and thoroughly explained each and every prescription he was giving me. I never felt he was in a hurry to finish up and I can definitely say this doctor has outstanding bedside manners. On my way out, he even said that he would like to hear from me in the next couple of days to see how I am feeling and if I didn't call him, he would call me. :) On a scale of 1 to 10 Dr. Mangas is a 10+++++ on my list! I will definitely recommend him to everyone I know.
Definitely the best Pulmonologist in Miami. Have dealt with several and he is professional, caring and very patient. He takes the time to explain steps and what he is recommending in order to improve and maintain your health. He is very straight forward and honest about what needs to be done and makes sure you understand what needs to be done on both sides! Although some times the wait times can be lengthy, but it's well worth it because he takes his time with you and doesn't just do assembly-line waiting rooms. When he is in the room you have his full attention! Definitely recommend this doctors to EVERYONE!!
