Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. DeOrio "As a child I loved giving presents. It gave me great pleasure to select a gift and then present it to the recipient and watch their face as they opened the present. Now I get to do the same thing for my patients. Removing patient's pain and giving them greater mobility in life is the best gift I could ever give anyone. I am so pleased I have been able to spend my life helping others and I look forward to helping you."
