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.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. DiSalvo

from Isabelle in DE August 5, 2022 for Carmelo DiSalvo, MD, FAAFP

I went to Dr. Disalvo office for the first part of my physical. I mentioned I had a cough, sore throat and general malaise. Due to Covid restrictions I was asked to wait in the car. Nikki Trujillo came out with the strep test and did a great job taking samples. Later, she arranged for me to see Dr. Disalvo who diagnosed me with pneumonia. Nikki was totally cheerful and very professional… See more
