Thomas Alfreda, Jr., was born and raised in New Castle, Pennsylvania, the eldest of two sons in a middle-class family.
On Friday nights, the sociable and active teen liked to watch the TV medical drama, St. Elsewhere, with his mom. He found the rowdy and unorthodox character played by Howie Mandel fascinating, especially since "Dr. Wayne Fiscus" wore a baseball jersey to the hospital. That's when the young boy decided to pursue medicine after achieving his MBA.
Fast forward a number of years and now Thomas Alfreda, Jr.'s name is followed by the initials D. and O. for doctor! While Dr. Alfreda is not a TV character, he has the same charm as his inspirational Dr. Fiscus, and has even been on television including being a guest on the national show, Dr. OZ.
The secret to Dr. Alfreda's success isn't just a bright, problem-solving mind, but a sincere desire to help every person that comes to him. His philosophy—treat every patient like your own family—has earned him a devoted and growing patient base.
When he's not busy staying abreast of the latest medical modalities and treating patients, he can be found with his precious daughter attending theatre at The Smith Center or cheering on the hockey team for which Dr. Alfreda also serves as team physician—the Las Vegas Wranglers.
