Meet Our Team

Anthony Izzo, DO, FAAN, FAASM

Neurology & Sleep Medicine,
Worcester Location

Board-certified in both neurology and sleep medicine, Dr. Izzo provides high quality, compassionate care to patients with sleep disorders: along with treating patients with common conditions, like insomnia or obstructive sleep apnea, his background in neurology gives him particular expertise in rare diseases like narcolepsy and idiopathic hypersomnia.

Treatment of neurologic conditions and sleep disorders often requires a two-fold approach, according to Dr. Izzo. “First, I focus on the treatment of the underlying disease, which works in the long-term to improve symptoms. Then, I address symptomatic treatments to help ease the symptoms more immediately.”

He believes that working as a team with patients and caregivers requires long-term relationships.  “As patients’ needs change over the course of their disease, it’s necessary to keep an open dialogue between the patient and caregiver to continue to meet new medical challenges as they arise. “

Dr. Izzo encourages patients to make healthy choices that will benefit their well-being. “I will often guide patients toward lifestyle changes that will have a big, if not bigger, impact on their symptoms and overall health than any medication I can prescribe.”

Dr. Izzo graduated cum laude from Providence College and earned his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) degree from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. He completed an internship in Internal Medicine and a residency in Neurology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, serving as chief resident during his final year of training. He also completed a fellowship in Sleep Medicine at St. Vincent Hospital in Worcester. He belongs to several professional societies, including the American Osteopathic Association, Worcester District Medical Society, Massachusetts Medical Society, American Academy of Neurology, and American Academy of Sleep Medicine. In 2021, he received national recognition in the field of sleep medicine by being inducted as a Fellow of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (FAASM). In 2023, he also received similar national recognition in the field of neurology when he was inducted as a Fellow of the American Academy of Neurology (FAAN).  

Always Caring

Dr. Izzo should be a mentor for the next generation of compassionate care givers. He takes his time to listen and understand the patient like he was making house calls and presents options guided by sound reasoning not opinion.

Suffering from Narcolepsy with Cataplexy, I struggled until I met Dr. Izzo. He introduced an effective but lesser-known medication, and his team's support helped me overcome insurance obstacles. Symptom-free for a year now, his understanding and dedication are exceptional. For empathetic and effective neurology care, I highly recommend Dr. Izzo.
