      Given the sudden and unexpected referrals to see Dr. DeFranco, I was most impressed his staff & Dr."s knowledge of my cardio-history, the willingness to answer my questions and concerns about the planned/possible treatments in clear and concise language relieved my worst worries to a "let's do it!" plan of treatment. I have mentioned him and his staff to several friends and fellow cardio-patients as an outstanding medical provider they should consider for their treatment.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. DeFranco's Care Philosophy

      Please visit my website: defrancomd.org

      My Practice Philosophy: It must be...

      • Evidence-based: Grounded in scientific studies 
      • Personalized: I will assess the results of scientific studies, testing, and treatment decisions to you, because you are an individual 
      • Patient Centered: My job is to educate so that you can make your own decisions.
      • Coordinated: With the care that you receive from other physicians
      • Ethical: As your physician, I am responsible to you - not the insurance company, Medicare, or anyone else

      More About My Practice

      First, I am a general as well as an interventional cardiologist: I will perform the initial evaluation of any cardiac or vascular problem, discuss treatment options, and if you need a sub-specialist, I will help you find just the right physician.Second, if your problem involves coronary artery disease, I can determine if a "stress" test, catheterization, or interventional procedure (such as a stent) is needed, and I can perform these procedures for you. Third, if you have a potential dysrhythmia (disorder of heart rhythm) I will establish the correct diagnosis and treatment, and in some cases, identify the best sub-specialist if additional treatment is necessary. And if you have a valvular or other structural heart disease, I can perform your echocardiogram and, if necessary, identify another specialist for your treatment.
