ROCKFORD, Illinois–Mercyhealth is pleased to welcome Dr. Mario Affinati to the staff of the Mercyhealth Internal Medicine Residency Program at Javon Bea Hospital–Riverside, Rockford. He serves as the program’s director.
Dr. Affinati enjoys all aspects of physician education. “The practice of medicine evolves with scientific progress: molecular genetics, molecular pathophysiology, molecular biology, new imaging and diagnostic techniques, bio informatics and information technology. However, the foundation of medicine remains the same: a strong patient- doctor relationship in which science, intuition, judgment and experience are used as an instrument to serve the patient.”
After earning his medical degree at the University of Rome, La Sapienza, Rome, Italy, Dr. Affinati served his Internal Medicine residency at Lutheran General Hospital, Park Ridge, IL. He is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, and is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians (FACP). Dr. Affinati’s special interests include training internal medicine residents, and studying patient safety and quality of care.
