Specialties

Dr. Tony G Farah has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • 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.

Great doctor, wonderful bedside maner

I was life flighted to AGH in 1992 with 100% blockage of my LAD. I was in a lot of pain and was justifiably worried. I was 49 at the time, the same age that my father passed away from heart problems. I was fortunate enough to have Dr. Farah as my physician. I turned 71 yesterday, Jan. 3rd. Dr. Farah was about as caring and warm as a doctor could be. He was extremely kind and informative to my wife. I think that the man is a great surgeon and a wonderful man. He and his team placed stents in my LAD and I have felt great for the past 22 years. Thanks again Dr. Farah.
