My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goals as your primary care physician are to partner with you to develop a comprehensive and personalized care plan that include both wellness care and the active management and treatment of your chronic health conditions. Together, we will better address both acute and chronic disease, effectively working towards minimizing risks, achieving goals and improving outcomes in prevention. Intrinsically, I am empathetic and genuinely interested and concerned about my patients’ needs. I believe mutual trust, transparency and respect are imperative in achieving and maintaining a healthy physician‐patient relationship.

I have had the privilege of being educated and trained in both rural and urban settings in the United States and the United Kingdom. That experience has fostered my understanding and appreciation for all people and cultures. In addition, both my training and practicing the art of medicine over the last fifteen years have honed my skills and afforded me the ability to practice in a cost‐effective and evidence‐based fashion. I believe my education, expertise in family medicine and fervor for chronic disease management will benefit all my patients. My MDVIP-affiliated practice will allow us the time to sit down together, identify, review, explore and discuss treatment options, all while working towards your health needs and goals.

from Connie in DE March 10, 2024 for Carmelo DiSalvo, MD, FAAFP

I have had a difficult time the last year with what I have. Not to go into detail but I did know that all the doctors I saw were incorrect. I asked a friend of mine who would she recommend and she had nothing but good things to say about Dr. Disolvo. He is not only taking good care of me, he understands my concerns. I have never been in this position. He was very comforting and asssured me… See more

Doctor Disalvo has always been extremely caring, kind, and helpful in every visit.
He takes time to explain everything fully so that I understand. He offers valuable recommendations on issues like cholesterol, blood pressure and healthy eating habits to name a few. Dr. Disalvo has proven to be concerned and thorough. I believe he exemplifies what MDVIP sets out to accomplish.
