Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Giaimo "When you book an appointment to see me in my office, you will see me and ONLY me every single time.  It may sound old fashioned, but I believe this is crucial for continuity of care.

My training as a Doctor of Osteophathic Medicine, in addition to my training in Pulmonary, Sleep and Internal medicine, allows me to understand and treat ALL of a person's symptoms.

Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine are trained to search the traditional box of medicine and beyond.  It's medicine that makes sense. "
