Handsome Man | Registered Vascular Specialist | Bellava MedAesthetics & Plastic Surgery Center in Bedford Hills, NY

Joseph Sambataro, MD


Dr. Sambataro earned his medical degree from Rutgers, New Jersey Medical School and trained to become board certified in internal medicine at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia, PA.
During his internal medicine training, he became extremely interested in the human metabolism and endocrine systems — figuring out how these systems govern our energy levels, our mood, our sleep patterns, our relationships with others, and, generally, how we look and feel throughout our very demanding day-to-day lives. There is now a great deal of evidence-based, peer-reviewed literature that can guide physicians to help improve not only the quantity of life, but easily as important, our quality of life.
Dr. Sambataro prioritizes his relationships with his patients and takes pride in the significant improvements they receive as a result of their treatments. An avid lover of music, sports, the outdoors, and people, he strives to help his patients regain their ability to enjoy what it is they love about life and reach their full potential.
