Dr.  Mascaro has worked in private practice locally helping to  develop primary care sports medicine in the community over the last several years.  With the constantly changing health care models,  she believes patients deserve individualized, flexible care designed to  fit their schedule. This sometimes means prolonged visits, email  and phone access, annual physicals, and comprehensive wellness and  evaluations plans for the athletic season. With this in mind, she has  decided to enter solo practice to focus on helping her patients meet  their underlying goal of achieving competitive excellence.

She works with multiple local gyms to provide  preventative and management of chronic injuries to recreational and  elite athletes alike.
