Dr. Joseph Alleva

October 13, 2016 | Submitted by pmrismorethan

When Dr. Joseph Alleva started out in medical school, he wanted to specialize in sports medicine. But he soon grew more interested in non-surgical approaches to musculoskeletal issues.

“It’s more than a medical practice,” he says. Practicing physiatry means developing longer-term patient relationships than doctors in other specialties get to experience.

It also means looking beyond the disease to see the bigger picture and make a difference. “We focus more on the whole patient…their functional abilities, their abilities to get back to doing the things that they love in life.”
