Tracy Brobyn, MD had been practicing family medicine for more than two decades when she could no longer ignore the clinical elephant in the room. Like most family physicians, patients would come to her for a myriad of issues – many of which could be addressed with traditional medicine. However, a host of conditions, such as chronic pain, fatigue, atypical neuropathy and insomnia, seemed to remain a mystery even after exhausting the usual treatments.

Kenneth Faistl, MD

Over the course of more than four decades in family medicine, Ken Faistl, MD set a goal for himself. “Fairly early on I developed the idea that I wanted to finish my career making sure no child was born to an opioid-addicted mother,” Dr. Faistl, who is board-certified in family medicine as well as geriatrics and addiction medicine, says. Difficult and impossible as the goal may have seemed, Dr. Faistl made it his priority to improve the lives of all patients, including those struggling with alcohol and drug addiction.

Michael Cascarina, MD

Like many family physicians, Dr. Cascarina treats patients of all ages – newborns to seniors – and has patients with two, three or even four generations of family members coming to the practice. The self-described “crazy happy guy” has built a thriving privately owned, three-physician practice in Brick that enables Dr. Cascarina to practice medicine the way he enjoys – treating patients in a caring environment while developing strong bonds.
