About Me

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.
