Thomas Pitoscia, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal is to provide patient-centered internal medicine and primary care services to all of my patients in a warm and caring atmosphere. I pride myself in providing quality care in the same way I expect to be treated. When patients are in my office, I have the time to listen to all of their concerns and answer all their questions, which is largely responsible for helping me provide the type of care that improves lives, not just symptoms and illness.
