About Dr. DiCasimirro

Philosophy of care

My philosophy of care is highly influenced by my parents and my background in sports medicine. My parents raised me to be a good listener and treat everyone with respect. Sports medicine taught me the benefits of teamwork, the importance of working with you on your treatment waypoints, and the ultimate goal of keeping you as physically active as is safely possible.

Why I entered medicine

I see my career in medicine as a gift: I can help others by using my academic foundation and interpersonal skills to communicate and teach. Providing guidance and direction to others as part of a team has always been important to me. As a youth I was fortunate to meet and develop relationships with very dedicated health care professionals. Those relationships sparked my desire to study medicine.

Community involvement

Over my entire professional career, I have served as a team physician for numerous school districts, as well as a physician for the PIAA at the district, regional and state levels for wrestling and for track and field. I have also done volunteer work for several benevolent organizations.

Personal interests

In my free time I enjoy training my two Labrador retrievers and participating in various outdoor activities. I like to exercise, travel domestically and abroad, learn new languages, garden and cook.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
