Dr. Dominic Riganotti
Wilton Manors, FL
25 years experience male
<h1I did all my training in an around Boston whom many (myself included) believe is the "Mecca of Medicine". I've been formally treating HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases since 2001 (which was when my academic training was successfully completed). I was trained by some of the countries leading Infectious Disease Specialists. Boston's teaching hospitals are some of the countries very finest and I'm proud to say I trained there.</h1> <h1>Unlike many doctors...I always knew "what I wanted to be when I grew up" very early in my career. As a first year medical student I fell in love with ID (Infectious Disease). I spent that summer at the Harvard Fenway Community Health Center. I knew HIV/AIDS was going to be my focus by the time I began my second medical school year. So....even though I've only been out of my formal fellowship training about a decade...I feel like I've been doing this "specialty thing" a lot lot longer (4 years of medical school, 1 year Internship, 2 years Residency, 1 year Chief Medical Resident and finally 3 years of Fellowship!).</h1> <h1>My practice philosophy is based on three basic principles. The first and most important is mutual respect. I'm a punctual person by nature and won't keep you waiting forever to be seen. Your time is as valuable as mine is and I won't waste it. I'll never talk ATyou, or AROUND you, or DOWN TO you. I'll only talk TO you. This is a mutual partnership...not a dictatorship. </h1> </h1>I also know people get sick unexpectedly. So....I schedule same day appointments and will always see you when asked to. If were super swamped...the latest you'll be seen is the morning after. That's my promise to you. I'm also on call for the practice 24/7 so you can call with emergencies and concerns that can't wait (and I will return your call promptly). </h1>

A 18-year-old female asked:
Clostridium: CDiff does have a significant relapse rate. It has to be 100% liquid in order for the lab to process the sample. Young people can tolerate symptoms much more than the elderly or ill and therefore tend to go on with the infection a lot longer before seeking treatment. It may resolve spontaneously..but better if you go to your primary, ID or GI doctor. Avoid clindamycin in the future.
A 48-year-old female asked:
A 22-year-old male asked:
Staphylococcus: Now a days many of us are colonized with MRSA. It doesn't necessarily mean we will develop any increased infection rates as compared to MSSA which is also all over us. While technically speaking Cleocin, Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and Rifampin may work..don't be surprised if it doesn't. Zyvox is an excellent oral medication for severe infections. Hibiclens is far superior to Dial. Twice a week use after bathing
