“In the busy, hectic world we all live in today, it is so important to take the time and ensure every patient’s concerns are heard. A soft voice and a gentle touch to a patient’s hand can go a long way in making them feel more relaxed and secure in their care. Only good things can come from an organization, such as Northeast Medical Group, that works together as a whole to ensure the patient feels they are receiving the best possible care. ”

“A patient can go through a rollercoaster ride of events with their health; starting with a simple annual wellness visit, to a serious medical event or diagnosis, to the end of life. No matter what the event may be, it is important to treat each and every patient with respect and dignity, provide them support and have compassion. As a nurse working with NEMG, I am proud to say I follow their values and happy that I make a difference in our patient’s lives.”

David Mazzariello, Operations Manager
