Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bartolozzi "I approach each patient as if I was caring for a family member.  I believe in a conservative approach as the initial treatment when appropriate. I recognize and understand the importance of educating the patient on the diagnosis as well as the implications and consequences of the diagnosis and treatment options. My goal is to be sure that patients' questions and concerns are addressed during their office visit. 

Having served as the team physician for the Philadelphia Eagles and Philadelphia Flyers, I am aware of how important it is for athletes and athletically active people to receive immediate diagnosis and expedited treatment. I apply these principles in the treatment of all of my patients.

Our medical team includes a highly experienced physician assistant, an internationally experienced physical therapist and a skilled and experienced nurse first assistant in the operating room. This experienced team aids in patient education and in communication with other health care providers."
