Hospital Medicine
I strive to provide quality care for individuals during some of their most challenging times.

Approach To Care

Watching many people, including close family members, navigate healthcare has helped Dr. Aghenta understand the degree of complexity patients can face. She understands that a hospital visit can be stressful for the individual and their family. Dr. Aghenta believes that caring for people is a privilege and is committed to treating people with respect. She focuses on strong interpersonal communication with the individual, families and other members of her healthcare team.
