About Dr. Loffredo

Philosophy of care

Family medicine gives me the unique opportunity to care for individuals and families throughout their lives and across generations. I enjoy working with young families, promoting healthy lifestyles and putting preventive medicine into practice. I also love helping patients learn about, treat and live successfully with the medical conditions they develop over their lifespans.

Why I entered medicine

I’m the first person in my family to graduate from college. My grandparents didn’t finish high school, but they made sure their children – my parents – got a better education. Although my parents didn’t have the opportunity to attend college, they recognized the importance of a complete education and made sure I had every chance to pursue my interests and be successful in whatever career I chose. I found I had a passion for the intellectual challenge of medicine and was excited by the opportunity family medicine offered to be a health advocate for families and the community.

Community involvement

My work as a doctor improving patients’ lives is my passion, but it’s an all-consuming job that doesn’t allow me much time for volunteer pursuits. However, in the past I served for 10 years on the board of Dream Come True, a local grassroots charity that makes dreams come true for seriously, chronically or terminally ill children.

Personal interests

I enjoy painting, reading, gardening, art and history.

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.
