Specialties

Dr. Sam A Borno has the following 3 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.

  • 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.

Arrived an hour early and was seen in 15 minutes. His assistant that we saw was very professional and answered all our questions. She double checked with the Doctor to verify my situation. The doctor was very polite and answered our questions. in a very good manor.

Was a patient. Not anymore. Bad Doctor

I had a couple of questions to ask. The doctor got upset and said I was wasting his time. I got upset and I complained to his stuff. They said he gets like that when he is stress out. I dropped him that same day.

Diva Doctor

Doctor Borno does not like his patients to asks questions. He told my mother that he had a busy practice and did not have time for such nonsense. He becomes very defensive very quickly when any question were posed. We left his office knowing about as much as before seeing him. He took a residency at a Psychiatric Hospital called CT Menninger Hospital in Kansas. I called them and confirmed that this was the only Rresidency available. Somehow, over the years, he changed his professional path and became a cardiologist. This is an unusual move according to other doctors I have spoken to. His Cardiology training is difficult to uncover or confirm. He does have a license to practice medicine in California.
