“Part of my job as a neurologist is partnering with patients and their families to work on treatment plans, with and without medication, to maximize quality of life.”

Dr. Anthony Izzo is Associate Chief of Neurology and sleep specialist/neurologist at the Saint Vincent Hospital location of Saint Vincent Medical Group at Worcester Medical Center. 

Board certified in neurology and sleep medicine, Dr. Izzo provides expert care to neurology patients, ranging from conditions like headache, to more complex conditions like epilepsy, stroke, spinal cord injury and multiple sclerosis.   With his expertise in sleep medicine, he treats a wide variety of sleep-related complaints, including common conditions, like insomnia or obstructive sleep apnea, and rare iseases like narcolepsy.

Treatment of neurologic conditions often requires a two-fold approach, according to Dr. Izzo. “First, I focus on the treatment of the underlying disease, which works in the long-term to improve symptoms. Then, I address symptomatic treatments to help ease the symptoms more immediately.”

He believes that working as a team with patients and caregivers requires long-term relationships.  “As patients’ needs change over the course of their disease, it’s necessary to keep an open dialogue between the patient and caregiver to continue to meet new medical challenges as they arise. “

Dr. Izzo encourages patients to make healthy choices that will benefit their wellbeing. “I will often guide patients toward lifestyle changes that will have a big, if not bigger, impact on their symptoms and overall health than any medication I can prescribe.”

Dr. Izzo graduated cum laude from Providence College and earned his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) degree from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. He completed an internship in Internal Medicine and a residency in Neurology at University of Massachusetts Medical School, serving as chief resident during his final year of training. He also completed a fellowship in Sleep Medicine at St. Vincent Hospital in Worcester. He belongs to several professional societies, including the American Osteopathic Association, Worcester District Medical Society, Massachusetts Medical Society, American Academy of Neurology and American Academy of Sleep Medicine.

*Dr. Izzo is very caring neurologist - who performs the neurology exam (instead of making assumptions- like my last neurologist.

I truly can't say enough about dr. Izzo. when I approach him with treatment plans or ideas he is a true partner. I often email him to check in throughout the month and he always replies within 24 hrs or the next business day. I feel incredibly supported and educated about both my diagnoses and treatment
