Tara Tarantino offers a holistic approach to patient care and preventive medicine, listening and partnering with her patients to achieve and maintain wellness. She became a physician because she wanted to build meaningful partnerships with her patients to improve and maintain their overall health and wellbeing. Welcoming patients and families from adolescents to seniors, her practice is built on compassion and trust; recognizing that wellness begins when you look beyond simply treating symptoms and care for the whole person.
In addition to Family Medicine, Dr. Tarantino also provides Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) for patients of all ages. OMT involves using the hands to diagnose, prevent and treat illness and injury; employing techniques that include stretching, gentle pressure (like massage), and resistance. These treatments can be used to ease pain, promote healing, decrease stress, and increase overall mobility. When appropriate, OMT can complement, and sometimes replace, drugs or surgery.
Tara Tarantino obtained her medical degree from Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine. She completed her internship at NYU Langone Hospital in Brooklyn, NY and her residency at Saint John's Episcopal Hospital in Queens, NY.
Dr. Tarantino is Board Certified in Family Medicine and Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment by the American Osteopathic Board of Family Physicians.
