Prior to joining Medix Resources, Joseph Piacentile spent nearly two decades in private practice, working in clinics in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. He earned his M.D. from the Georgetown University School of Medicine and completed a residency in general surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. Joseph Piacentile has given his time to helping others in need of medical services. He has personally contributed to several campaigns that provide medical services to underserved patients around the world, including Medical Mission International, Flying Doctors of America, Forward Edge International, and missions with Beth Israel Medical Center.
