Dr. Michael F. Ruggiero graduated from the University of Scranton in 1979 with a degree in Biology. In 1983 he graduated from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine with a D.O. degree, and then in 1984 completed his training in Family Medicine at Memorial Hospital in York, Pennsylvania. He began his career in the United States Air Force as a Director of the Family Medicine Clinic at Laughlin AFB in Del Rio, TX. He is Board Certified in Family Medicine by the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians.
Since his training days, Dr. Ruggiero has approached patient care in a HOLISTIC way. Rather than concentrate on single medical conditions, D.O. training stresses overall well-being, the relationship of different body systems to each other and the effects they produce.
