Plymouth Native Returns to Practice in Hometown 06/22/2010 Saint Joseph is excited to welcome Plymouth native Brian L. Piazza, MD to the Medical Staff.
Dr. Piazza specializes in general surgery as well as upper and lower Endoscopy. He has been in practice for 15 years and will be joining the staff at Marshall County Surgery Associates.
After graduating from Plymouth High School in 1982, Dr. Piazza attended Valparaiso University and then Indiana University School of Medicine. In addition, one of his professional highlights included a teaching stint at Michigan State University’s Department of Surgery, where he worked with an expert office and hospital staff and had the opportunity to touch the lives of many patients.
Dr. Piazza takes a team approach to patient care – for the physician, the patient and the patient’s loves ones.
“We are all on the same team,” he said. “The patient is the coach and the doctor serves as the quarterback, acting in the coach’s best interests.
Most patients are apprehensive when they are coming in for a surgery or procedure, no matter how invasive it may be. While many patients ask about the benefits, risks and possible outcomes, it can be a lot of remember. Dr. Piazza encourages his patients to bring a family member or trusted friend to appointment.
“I also truly believe each person is created in God’s image,” he said. “It’s my personal philosophy to treat every patient with the utmost dignity and respect.”
Dr. Piazza enjoys spending time with his wife and two children, all while trying to keep in touch with his six brothers. In his spare moments he enjoys staying active in his church, photography and downhill and cross-country skiing.
