Approach To Care

Dr. Conterato strives to deliver the very best care with every patient that he attends to. He believes that when a patient visits the emergency department, they must know from the moment they meet that they can place their trust in him and that he will always do his very best for them. He aims to instill these principles in his EMS staff in order for them carry forth the same standards that he sets for himself when caring for patients and their families.
