Dr. Carfagno's Back office staff
LEONA CARFAGNO "MOM"
Leona is Dr Carfagno's Mom. In 2003 when he left a prominent orthopedic group and went on his own, she was very integral in starting up his practice. Her passions are singing in the opera, raising her grandchildren, and truly enjoys working with people. Dr Carfagno really enjoys having his Mom work with him in the office. There is a family energy when you are part of the clinic and that compassionate and caring touch is what dignifies the brand of SSMI.
