About Dr. Agresti

Philosophy of care

I was raised to treat others as I would like to be treated, and I try to bring that philosophy to every patient encounter. To do this, one must always have respect for the patient and be an outstanding listener.

Why I entered medicine

I have always had a passion for the biological sciences and I knew I wanted a career in that field -- specifically, research. But after working as a laboratory technician during college, I realized I missed human interaction. I was more interested in getting to know my co-workers than my test tubes. This was when I realized I could incorporate my love for science and people into becoming a physician.

Community involvement

During my family medicine residency, I volunteered annually at the first aid station of the American Cancer Society Relay for Life in Saucon Valley, Pa.

Personal interests

Above all, I enjoy spending time with my family. I love the outdoors and spend most free time hiking, kayaking and camping with my husband and our dog.

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.
