About

Roberto Scaffidi, MD specializes in interventional cardiology.

Dr. Scaffidi knew he wanted to be a doctor since childhood. As a teenager, his father was diagnosed with unstable angina. Because his parents were immigrants with limited education, Dr. Scaffidi took the initiative himself to fully understand the diagnosis and ensure the best treatment was attained for his dad. The experience confirmed for Dr. Scaffidi that he wanted to be a cardiologist.

As an interventional cardiologist, Dr. Scaffidi deals with matters of the heart, including angina (severe chest pain), claudication (cramping pain in the leg caused by obstruction of the arteries) and severe aortic valve stenosis (obstruction of aortic valve that weakens heart muscles). He delivers quality care and treatments such as a coronary stenting, peripheral angioplasty and TAVR procedures.

He is skilled in explaining conditions and treatments in a way all patients can understand. Dr. Scaffidi is dedicated to his patients. It’s his mission to prolong their life span by encouraging healthy lifestyle changes.   

Dr. Scaffidi is heavily involved in the community. He coaches soccer for the Church of the Holy Cross in Dover and volunteers at his children’s schools. Dr. Scaffidi is president of his home owner’s association and a member of the hospital’s Medical Staff Development Committee. He is also a member of a local running club, Downstate Delaware Striders and Riders.
