Dr. Depietro's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Depietro "What inspired you to become a doctor? I am the son of a nurse and a mechanic, so from an early age I had an appreciation for both the value of working with one's hands as well as going into a profession where I could help others. I find myself very fortunate to be able to do both! Why did you become an ENT/Otolaryngologist? I went into Otolaryngology due to the versatility it provides. As otolaryngologists, we treat surgical and non-surgical issues in a broad spectrum of patients that range from newborns to geriatric patients. It can be a very rewarding specialty to be able to help so people from so many walks of life. Within Otolaryngology, I have pursued further training in the care of Voice, Swallowing and Airway disorders. These are functions people tend to take for granted when functioning normally. When they aren't normal, it becomes evident how much a change in the voice or difficulty swallowing can effect one's work performance and social interactions. I really enjoy being able to help improve someone's quality of life with one of these disorders. How do you want your patients to remember you? I hope that patients under my care can experience respectful, friendly and complete care. I also aim to provide complete counseling on the diagnosis and routine follow up until the problem has resolved. As healthcare is a "team" sport, I also make it a point to keep the patient's other providers updated. My ultimate aim is that patients leave with a greater understanding of their health and know that I am there to help them through any ups and downs that occur."

Dr. Depietro gave me a quick and very accurate diagnosis of my vertigo, spinning, lightheaded symptoms. A couple of days later with treatment (the Epley Maneuver), my symptoms were completely gone. This Doctor is very thorough and well mannered. I would absolutely go to him again.

I give my highest recommendation to Dr. D! I was referred by another ENT for a vocal cord polyp. He is clearly knowledgable and has great bedside manner. I had to drive to see him but he was very patient and answered all questions.
