Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Smith ""Focused on care" are words to live by for doctors Richard J. Peterson and Alessandro Golino at Manatee Cardiac Surgery. To us, the phrase means caring for our patients before and after - not just during - their surgeries. When choosing Manatee Cardiac Surgery you can be sure that Doctors Peterson and Golino take pride in taking care of people as people, not just patients."
