#TeamTuesday: Peter Passalacqua is often the first and last person our UVA Rheumatology Pantops patients interact with. His job involves answering phone calls, scheduling appointments, registering and checking out patients and routing messages to doctors and nurses.
Peter received our Uteam Member of the Month award last year. When nominating him, a colleague wrote, “Peter goes above and beyond for the patients, sometimes staying well past closing to make sure that they are receiving the best care possible. … He always has a can-do attitude and has a very giving heart.” Peter loves that working in a smaller clinic lets him really get to know the patients.
Peter was born and raised in Rockland County, New York, outside of New York City. Before coming to UVA in 2005, he worked at Barnes and Noble in Secaucus, New Jersey, and says this is the reason why he’ll never read the Harry Potter series. He lives in Fluvanna County with his husband, CJ, and a "menagerie" of animals, including a Yorkie named Shiloh and a Boston terrier named Dixie. He loves reading, films and podcasts.
