“I believe in compassionate care. That means really listening to my patients, putting myself in their place. Only then can I adjust the care I provide based on their individual needs. When I’m not seeing patients, I enjoy playing music. I’ve always said that there are two things in life: a challenge, or fun. Practicing medicine would fall into the challenge category, but I also think it crosses over a little into the fun. I feel very fortunate to be able to do what I love and to work closely with colleagues I respect.”

Dr. Attanasio is interested in treating patients of all ages, and his specialties range from adolescent medicine to women’s medicine. In addition to English, Dr. Attanasio is fluent in Spanish, Italian and German.
