Specialties

Dr. Suzette A Garofano 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.

AMAZING!

Dr. Garafano is one of the very best doctors you will ever meet. Incredibly smart, perceptive, knowledgeable, caring. She truly loves her profession and helping people. Going to her you can be assured that whatever she says is correct, whatever she recommends should be done, whomever she refers you to is a good doctor, and that she will get to the bottom of whatever your health issue is. I want to also give kudos to the young man (unfortunately don't know his name) who performs lung function tests in her office. Dr. Garafano and her team are all people for whom medicine is indeed a true calling.

The most compassionate, professional, knowledgable doctor I ever met

In all of my years of going to many doctors I have never met such a caring,patient,compassionate Doctor as Dr. Garofano. I would not only recommend this doctor to any friends and family members but I would even recommend her to the President of the United States of America. She is very brillant and does everything and I mean everything in her power to help you. On many occassions I have been close to death with little or no hope of survival, because of her deligence, patience and because she really cares I am alive today. She is truly a angel sent from heavon above. She is a god send, I wagered my life on it.
