For more than a decade, he has worked alongside the board-certified physicians and general surgeons at Novant Health Colon and Rectal Clinic to provide the best medical care possible to our patients. "I became a physician assistant because I love medicine and enjoy helping people," Marcantonio explained. "The versatility coupled with the autonomy of being a PA also appealed to me.”
As a physician assistant, Marcantonio devotes much of his time to helping his patients understand their medical conditions and recommended treatments. "I really enjoy educating my patients about their upcoming surgery," he said. "We also talk a lot about recent surgeries and clinical conditions. This information helps them become active participants in their healthcare and recovery."
Marcantonio is married, and has "two beautiful and wonderful children," he said with a smile. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family, running, cooking, and barbecuing with family and friends.
