Joseph M. Provenzano, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

The best diagnostic tool is the physician's ear! If doctors are unable to have adequate time to listen to their patients, all is lost. The advantage of my MDVIP-affiliated practice is that it allows me to take all the time I need to listen and care for my patients as well as personally coordinate thier individualized treatment plans. My job is my patients' health care, and my goal is my patients' satisfaction.
