During all that time he has been an an unusually caring physician who has been an important source of encouragement in maintaining my cardiac health.

My husband has been a patient of Dr. Sdringola since 2006. He has received wonderful care and caring. Dr. Sdringola, in fact, insists that you text him with any issue you are concerned about. Dr. Sdringola was the cardiologist on call in December 2006 when my husband had to have a stent. We feel so fortunate that he was the doctor placed in our lives.

Dr. Sdringola-Maranga is not only the very best Cardiologist in the Houston area but the most caring and loving physician I have personally met. I have been a nurse for 34 years and I owe my life and my heart to this incredible doctor. He cares about each and every human being he touches. Since he has been caring for me he has literally cared for the whole me not just my cardiac issues. He always takes his time asks about my life and how I am caring for me. I would recommend him as the very best

Dr. Sdringola is a compassionate, caring and well-mannered doctor. He had taken care of our 84 y.o. dad who had 6 blockages, 80% each. He was able to successfully placed 4 stents which not only gave our dad a second chance in life but also helped gained his strength back. Though it was a very risky stent placement due to location of blockages, he was able to maneuver it safely and successfully. He is a great cardiologist, honest, caring and God-fearing doctor. I would highly recommend him!

3 years ago I suffered a heart attack and was taken to Memorial Hermann and revive 3 times on the way to the Hospital where Dr. Sdringola took over and save my life. It turns out. I had 100% blocked on one of my arteries going to the heart. He later put in 3 Stents. These life saving event lead to the discovery of not only a great physician but one of the most compassionate human being I have ever come across. He is a total dedicated physician with lots of experience in interventional Cardiology

This man is the best! He has taken care of my 92 year old mother for years! He is now my doctor as well. He is very personable and caring. Spends whatever time it takes to listen to his patients and makes himself available to their needs. He is very honest and trusting and truly cares that his patients and their families understand and are involved in the care process. I believe he saved me from a near stroke! Grateful he is my doctor and in my city! Would recommend him highly!!!
