Dr. Manganaro is in charge of supervision of the panel board of certified physicians who review the ultrasounds at Life Line Screening. He is also in charge of quality assurance as well as the overview of marketing. Dr. Manganaro got the screening idea from his practice as a cardiovascular surgeon. He witnessed many catastrophic cases such as completed carotid embolic strokes, issues that could have been avoided if only the patient recognized the symptoms and went for treatment at an early stage.
Dr. Manganaro brought his idea to life through hard work and by embracing teamwork. According to him, hard work and persistence are the two things that make him a productive entrepreneur. He believes that to assess and reassess your failures is the only way to grow. Dr. Manganaro recommends the book Idylls of the King that basically teaches humans the good and the bad.
