Dr. Stefano U Sdringola-Maranga has the following 2 specialties
- Infectious Disease
An infectious disease specialist has specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of contagious diseases.
Infectious diseases, also known as contagious or transmissible diseases, are those that stem from pathogen from a host organism. These infections may spread to other carriers through physical touch, airborne inhalation, bodily fluids or contaminated foods.
Infectious disease specialists identify whether the disease is caused by bacteria, a virus, a fungus or a parasite often through blood tests and then determine what course of treatment, if any, is necessary.
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.

Not enough words
Self-verified patient of Dr. Stefano U Sdringola-Maranga - Posted on October 26th, 2018
On a fluke my primary care found extra heart beats and said I need to see a cardiologist. A good friend referred me. My Dad & sister both died of heart attacks. My Primary care is lucky to see me once a year for my Well Woman. Her words not mine. When I was 5 I got diagnosed with a rare auto-immune condition at the time. They said I was 1 in a million. At the age of 12 I asked to not see any more doctors. I have never met a doctor like this before. I wish he could be all my doctors with one exception being my dentist whom I have seen at least twice a year for 10 years or more. Dr. Sdringola has such a good heart. Takes time explains things & even answered some questions more than once. He is very thorough. You can talk to him like real person. He genuine seems to like helping his patients and helping them to help themselves. Discuss things, he won't tell you everything you want to hear but you should listen to him. He is Kind, caring, gentle, trustworthy, a great bedside manner, compassion and passionate, he even has a sense of humor which really love & appreciate. He is the real deal and has such a refreshing outlook on treating patients with such respect, dignity & grace. I could not begin to imagine how hard this man works. I am truly humbled.
