Care Philosophy

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.

Dr Giaimo is an excellent, proffesional physician & his office staff & nurses are kind, friendly & Competent. Health concerns are inherently stressful enough, but Dr Giaimo & his staff help alleviate that burden by offering a clean & comfortable environment.
