About Dr. Valente

Philosophy of care

Being a physician is a privilege that comes with immense responsibility. We see patients frequently at their worst and most vulnerable times. We must always be able to answer to ourselves that we treated every patient with the same skill and respect we would our own loved ones.

Why I entered medicine

When I was working as a school teacher, I realized I enjoyed and found it rewarding to help students and their families with problems, a lot of which were unrelated to the subject I taught. This led to me considering medicine as a profession.

Community involvement

I am a founding board member of the Hazleton Integration Project (HIP). HIP seeks to bridge the gap and unite the different cultures that live in the Hazleton area. The Hazleton One Community Center, developed and sustained by HIP, serves the needs of greater than 2000 children weekly through multiple programs. The philosophy is that by having different cultural groups spend time together in various activities they will develop an appreciation for each other.
