Specialties

Dr. Victor E Corrigan Jr has the following 2 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.

  • 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.

Two Stars

I have been a patient of Dr. Corrigan for several years. Upon a recent visit he asks me why I have been on a blood thinner for 6 years. I said because you prescribed it. He said I should have been off it three years ago. He then asked ME if I had high blood pressure. He should know. He never tells me anything about my condition. I must ask questions before he volunteers information. Every visit is like meeting him for the first time. He has no knowledge of my history or records. He is friendly and personable but not attentive to my medical situation. Very very dissatisfied. Also hard to get follow up from phone calls for prescriptions and scheduling/ordering tests. Staff is very slow to respond if at all. He is a doctor for those who don't expect the best.
