Surgery and Women’s Health Are Focuses for Dr. Adrienne Salerno

“Family medicine is about making a difference in people’s lives every single day.”

Dr. Adrienne Salerno has always wanted to be a doctor. “I can’t remember a time when I wanted to be anything else,” she says. “I enjoy helping people.”

She started out her career in surgery, but found that she wanted more of a continuous, long-term relationship with her patients. Family medicine provided that connection. At Vanguard, Dr. Salerno enjoys the diversity of being able to treat everyone, from newborns to geriatrics. Often, her patients include various members of the same family.

“When I’m able to treat the whole family, it gives me the full perspective of understanding for the patients,” she says. “It’s easier to see the bigger picture, and that helps me make better decisions.” Toward that end, Dr. Salerno also makes it a point to follow her patients from office visits to hospitals or rehab, as needed. “You can see the difference in care delivered by someone who doesn’t know the patient as well,” she says. “It allows us to make sure that nothing slips through the cracks with these transitions.”

Dr. Salerno also uses her surgical background when minor cosmetic dermatologic procedures are needed, from cyst removal and abscess drainage to complex laceration repair. “I also perform ear lobe laceration repair,” she notes. “That’s pretty unique for most primary care offices, but we’re able to offer it right in the office.”

Dr. Salerno is on the Women’s Health Committee at Vanguard, to help improve services for female patients. These may include IUD placements, options for birth control and other procedures. The goal is also to expand education on women’s health topics.

When not working, Dr. Salerno enjoys doing CrossFit. She also likes to cook and spend time with her husband and children.

The whole reason I come here is Dr Peter Carrazzone. When I was desperately ill many years ago he stood by me and worked for solutions. Everybody at this practice is exceptional. Nurses, staff, everyone. SO much better than the vast majority with the "get 'em in get 'em out" attitude. Recently n been seeing Dr Salerno and she is also very impressive. Clearly competent and like Peter, she LISTENS and RESPONDS. Both of them are huge assets to your practice.

Dr. Salerno entered into the examing room with a friendly greeting. I explained what I believed I had that brought me to the medical office that day. After answering several questions, she determined what I had was, to my relief, something less serious. She explained the symptoms that would have been associated with my condition, had it been what I originally thought. Then, proceeded to go over the symptoms that were visible to her, and what to take to eliminate the symptoms. She continually emphasized if a certain symptom appeared, I was to call and come back to the office. I was prescribed medication with explanations of each. Dr. Salerno was very thorough and politely professional.
