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.
