Dr. Mazzella Inspired by Family Doctors

“As an osteopath (DO), I focus on the musculoskeletal system, which makes up about 70 percent of our body. When functioning properly, it helps keep you in optimum health.”

It seemed that Dr. Carmine Mazzella was destined to become a family doctor. He entered the world delivered by a family member who was a doctor. His godfather also was a physician. “Growing up, I had these incredible role models,” he says. “My godfather in particular was instrumental in my decision to become a physician. He was delighted by my career choice.”

Dr. Mazzella joined Vanguard soon after his graduation from medical school. He had worked weekends at the practice during his final year. “Vanguard was a very good fit for me. I liked the scope of services and the patient-centered approach. Since I had trained in Verona, I already had relationships with the specialists in the area for patient consultations as needed.”  

He has a growing patient base that is primarily referred by “word of mouth.” “Patients usually develop a relationship with a lead provider,” notes Dr. Mazzella, “and have an entire team available for emergent needs like sick visits.” He has developed relationships with multiple family members, cultivating a deeper knowledge of family histories that help inform health care decisions.

Dr. Mazzella helps patients with chronic disease, including managing diabetes, hypertension and cholesterol. He also focuses on the need for preventive care screenings. Because of his osteopathic training, he looks at disease a little differently – in how it relates to the musculoskeletal system. In that regard, he sometimes incorporates spinal manipulation, massage, exercise and physical therapy into patient treatment plans. The goal is to reduce pressure on joints and reduce inflammation.

When he’s not working, Dr. Mazzella enjoys photography, a hobby that he pursues with his wife. They also like to go camping and hiking.

As said, Dr. Mazzella is Absolutely phenomenal in his treatment and care. As Difficult as a pt that I am,as I believe that I am the Worst or at Vanguard Medical,Dr. MAZZELLA has Never once refused to help me in an Emergency,as said He is very empathetic towards me & Never,Ever just tries to rush me through. He makes sure that Before I leave that I am better than how I came in. My Case is so serious that I have to see Dr. Mazzella Every month. That is what we BOTH Agreed would be Best for me,as said due to the Complexity of my Debilitated Health,as the level of pain & suffering changes from Day to Day for me. That being said, due to Dr. Mazzella's Care, the need for me to be rushed to the hospital has dropped from almost every 6 weeks or so,to now maybe once or twice a year. I Only see Dr. Mazzella.
