Internist, and Practicing Ophthalmologist
Dr. Richard J. Manganiello is a practicing ophthalmologist in South Windsor, CT. The practice was founded by his older brother, Michael Manganiello, also an ophthalmologist, in 1991. Dr. Richard Manganiello joined the practice in 1996 and has practiced here ever since. His
brother retired in 2001.
Prior to coming to Connecticut, Dr. Manganiello practiced internal medicine focusing on, among other areas, infectious diseases. He served as an attending at both NYU Medical Center and Bellevue Hospital. He took care of HIV/AIDS patients at the height of the crisis at New York Y University Medical Center and the New York State prison population at Bellevue Hospital. His work in New York City prepared him to diagnose and treat a vast array of medical issues for diverse patient populations. He has always maintained his sense of medical excellence and compassion for all of his patients.
While his work in internal medicine was very meaningful, he subsequently pursued ophthalmology and has practiced this discipline since 1996. He earned his medical degrees from the State University of New York and completed an internship at New York University Medical Center. He completed two residencies, one in internal medicine at New York University Medical Center and the other in ophthalmology at the State University of New York.
