Who We Are

We have dedicated our practice to improving the health and overall well being of Pittsburgh East Health Center. Rather than focusing on one problem, we evaluate the whole body to diagnose any disruptions within the spine or discs—even before they become problematic enough to cause symptoms. Using this approach, we are better able to expedite recovery so patients can improve their quality of life.

Customizing treatment to your specific needs is an integral part of our healthcare philosophy. During your initial visit, we will meet with you to review your medical history and conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your spine. Once we have identified the source of your pain, he can develop a plan for effective and long-term relief. We offer a variety of rehab options aimed at correcting spine and disc conditions, which include:

• Physical Rehabilitation
• Nonsurgical spinal decompression
• Bracing
• Cold laser therapy

If you are currently experiencing back pain, Pittsburgh East Health Center is here to help. Call at our office today at: (412) 357-6070 for a FREE Consultation.

Meet the Doctor

Dr. R.J. Santoriello

Dr. R.J. Santoriello


The doctor graduated from Life Chiropractic University in 1988. From there he moved to Maryland and has now been in the chiropractic business for over 27 years. His certification includes, but is not limited to, active licensure in Pennsylvania and Maryland with physical therapy privileges. He also has professional affiliations with the American Chiropractic Association and International Chiropractic Association.

Dr. Santoriello told us that his favorite part of the job he does is attempting to diagnose a patient’s problem. He said, “You take all the empirical data, match it with clinical findings, and try to ascertain what’s wrong. It is very challenging but when you are correct, that is when appropriate treatment can begin.” He also said that diagnosing correctly has to be one of the most important parts of chiropractic work.

In his spare time, our new doc is an avid reader. Some of his favorite books include “East to the Dawn” by Susan Butler, “When Pride Still Mattered” by David Maraniss, “The Martian” by Andy Weir, “Seal Team Six” by Howard Waspin, and “Fire in the Hole” by Elmore Leonard. These books are a combination of biographies, chiropractic oriented books, and one sci-fi book!

Dr. Santoriello shared his favorite vacation experience with us. He went to Hawaii for two weeks. His favorite part of this vacation was not the beach, but the center of Maui, known as the Upland. He told us that this was the most beautiful areas he has ever been to.
On a more personal level, our new doctor has been married for 35 years, has three children, and two grandchildren. He has one French bulldog named Luchia and a pug named Gigi! One of his favorite things is taking his “two girls” out on walks through the woods! He also very much enjoys landscaping and likes golfing so much that he could spend ALL day playing!

Dr. Santoriello has graced us with his presence in our office. We are so grateful to have him and we would like if you could give him a big warm welcome to the Pittsburgh East Health Center family!
