- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.
- Sports Medicine
A sports medicine specialist is a physician who is trained to diagnose and treat injuries and conditions caused by participation in athletic activities.
These doctors are generally employed by professional sports teams to care for the athletes who are injured. They have extensive knowledge of the types of injuries that athletes are most susceptible to, such as stress fractures, sprains, concussions, muscle cramps, ACL injuries, and shin splints.
It is the responsibility of sports medicine specialist to clear athletes to return to the playing field when they are deemed fit. These doctors also advise athletes on how to avoid injury through proper care of their bodies while training.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

You don't find very many doctors that cares as much as Dr. Scarpone does about his patients. Dr. Scarpone does not rush you out of his office and spends adequate time with his patients. This was important to my husband and I since we drove almost 2 hrs to see Dr. Scarpone on several occasions. Dr. Scarpone also tries to keep the cost of procedures down so his patients can afford to seek treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Scarpone. You may wait a good while to see him in the waiting room, but it well worth the wait.
As a physician for 30 yrs I had the opportunity to observe and learn from Dr Scarpone in a mini fellowship for one week. His clinical skills and acumen in regenerative injection therapy are at the leading edge of these little known therapies. His commitment to patient car and research are exemplary.
I submitted my medical records and diagnistic tests to his office as directed by his staff. I did not hear for a couple of weeks. I called his office and spoke with his staff several times to try to get a response regarding stem cell and PRP injections. They said they would follow up. I never heard from this guy even after repeated requests! He could care less!! AVOID!!!
