Ralph William Passarelli, MD

Excela Health Medical Group Provider

Philosophy of Care

It is my goal to provide the least invasive personalized treatment appropriate for each patient's condition and lifestyle. Whether an elite athlete or the weekend warrior, I want to get them back to the activiites they love as quickly and as safely as possible. All treatment plans are individually created and discussed, utilizing the most effective and clinically proven orthopedic techniques. I believe it is important to listen closely to patients and to treat the whole person, not just the problem or disease. ***

    Dr Passerelli really helped me with my shoulder problems about 5 years ago. Am now having issues w/my other shoulder /neck area and so far he's just as caring and thorough as he was then.

    I have recommended Dr. Passarelli to other friends. Some have already visited him and have had the same positive experience. I appreciate having a highly skilled physician locally without traveling to Cleveland.

    The wait time to see him is the only reason I would not recommend. Waiting an hour for a 15 minute appointment is disrespectful

    Dr. Paserelli always goes above and beyond when we see him. Not only does he address the reason for our visit but because he knows my son is an athlete he also provided suggestions for other aspects of his physical health.
