Michael F. de Lota, MD

Family Medicine

I grew up around health care as my father is a retired anesthesiologist and my mother, an RN. From them I learned that helping others is a privilege and have made it my life’s goal to serve others in their times of need. I chose Family Medicine because I believe that most chronic illness is preventable and medicine should be a proactive and not reactive practice. I strive to listen carefully to my patients’ concerns and provide them with the best and most current evidence-based tools they need to make informed decisions about their health care.
