Dr. Plateroti realized in his medical practice that there was potential in western medicine for the establishment of a new life-giving paradigm, one which encompassed the fundamental principle that perfect health is more than just the absence of disease.

Dr. Carmelo Plateroti felt it was important to attend a Medical School that provided a “whole person, also referred to Holistic” approach to medicine and attended Osteopathic Medical School. Instead of just treating specific symptoms or illnesses, they regard the body as an integrated whole.
Osteopathic physicians, also known as D.O.s, work in partnership with their patients. They consider the impact that lifestyle and community have on the health of each individual, and they work to erase barriers to good health.
