About Dr. Opsasnick

Philosophy of care

The most important thing I can do as an internist is listen carefully to you as my patient. Patients are acutely aware of their own bodies and can be excellent historians. A good history is the fastest means to the correct diagnosis and treatment. You and I are a team and must work together for your best health.

Why I entered medicine

I specifically chose internal medicine because of the overall breadth of the specialty. Taking care of the whole patient and utilizing diagnostic skills has always been very satisfying and rewarding.

Community involvement

I am involved with Saint Joseph’s Center, the Scranton area United Way and The Foundation for Cancer Care.

Personal interests

I enjoy walking, reading and spending time with my family. I particularly like following my favorite sports teams in football, baseball and basketball.
