Peter Alfano, PA is one of Chelmsford Family Practice’s physician assistants. One role of the physician assistant is to educate patients and help them understand and control their own treatment; a second is to diagnose and treat patients who need routine care or need to be seen when sick.

Peter’s role includes performing physical exams, sick visits, minor medical procedures, emergency room follow-ups, inpatient follow-ups, preoperative exams, and physicals. He is particularly passionate about educating patients on the profound impact lifestyle changes including diet and exercise can have on management of chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension.
