About Dr. Pasquale

Philosophy of care

My philosophy of care is to listen (patients will tell you what's wrong with them if you let them) and then use the knowledge and skills that you have to heal and comfort.

Why I entered medicine

There were several reasons that I chose to pursue medicine as a career. Most importantly is that I truly enjoy working with people. The added benefit is being able to take the knowledge and skills that you learn and apply them to healing and comforting patients. I find extremely satisfying. Lastly, I believe that the field of medicine provides a constant challenge and that you really do learn every day.

Community involvement

I am currently a member of St. Joseph the Worker Church in Orefield, Pa. I serve as the league representative for Allentown Central Catholic in the Catholic Football League youth football program. I am an assistant football and baseball coach on the youth level.

Personal interests

My personal interests include recreational activities of all kinds and coaching.

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.
