With a master’s in healthcare administration, Dr. Salerno leads the practice with steadfast dedication to providing quality and personal service to each patient. A former captain in the United States Air Force Medical Reserve, he is a respected public figure in the healthcare community as well as in the larger community spheres of business and philanthropy.
The practice’s dedication to population health and chronic disease state management as well as community-based programs such as Roseville Medical Society Urban Healthcare Initiative Program (UHIP) and Senior Health Outreach Program (SHOP) has resulted in a high level of respect and trust with patients.
Roseville Medical Society is a family-run, second-generation practice that has served East Orange and Newark, New Jersey, for over 50 years (over 100 years collectively). The practice was established by a team of husband and wife physicians, Dr. Alphonse Salerno, previous President of the prestigious American Academy of Surgeons, and Dr. Svetlana Salerno, one of the first female physicians in the Newark, NJ area.
