John C. Notaro, M.D.

Medical Director

Internal Medicine, Primary Care

When I am not working, you can find me:

In the garden – I love planting things and watching them grow.

Favorite place to visit:

I have two favorites: The first is Vietnam, especially the southern part, where my wife was born. The second is the region of Calabria in Italy where my parents were born.

Favorite book:

Anything by Dickens. I fell in love with Great Expectations when I was a freshman in college and since then I’ve loved all of Charles Dickens.

If I wasn’t a medical professional, I would be:

If I wasn’t in medicine, I would love to have been a college professor. Finding a way to understand something, and then sharing it with someone else is one of the greatest pleasures for me.

Favorite guilty pleasure:

Chocolate – but my wife keeps me on rations because she knows I can’t restrain myself.
