Philosophy:

Family was influential in Dr. Gregory S. Zarcone’s decision to specialize in internal medicine, which concerns the diagnosis and nonsurgical treatment of diseases in adults. “My dad was a doctor and then my sister became an internist and she was fairly influential in my decision to pursue internal medicine.”
After he practiced internal medicine in New York for six years, his family was influential in Dr. Zarcone’s decision to move to East Texas.
Now he’s at ETMC First Physicians Clinic in Pittsburg, where he’s influential in the health and well-being of his patients. “I take a true holistic approach to patient care. It’s not only important to understand a patient’s medical issues, but also who they are as a person and how that impacts their health.”
