About

Bio

I became a doctor to really get to know my patients to help them live well their whole lives. I didn’t enjoy a revolving door patient practice where I had less than ten minutes with my patients before I had to see another one. I decided enough is enough. I transitioned to a retainer based practice in 2009 with the guiding principle of quality over quantity and that relationships matter. With over 12 years in private practice, I’m excited to be a part of a patient-centered direct medical care practice built around my patient’s needs. We focus solely on patient's most common medical issues to provide them with the best and most comprehensive health care including wellness and preventive medicine, acute and chronic disease management and enhanced coordination of care. Salerno Health and direct medical care are here to stay.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
