Meet the Aligned Medical Group Team
Nicholas D’Orazio, MD
Dr. D’Orazio is Aligned Medical Group’s Medical Director. He earned his MD degree from Temple University School of Medicine. He did his internship and residency at Hershey Medical Center, Pennsylvania State University. After spending time practicing Psychiatry, he began working in Integrated Medical Practices almost 20 years ago, using a team approach to help people with muscle, joint, and spine conditions. He is Board Certified in Integrative and Holistic Medicine.
He brings many years of experience and training in all areas of health care provided at Aligned Medical, having worked in and supervised Regenerative Medicine, Physical Medicine, Chiropractic and Bariatric (weight management) practices.
Dr. D’Orazio particularly relishes working in such settings as Aligned Medical since restoring health and balancing the body is achieved without the overreliance on drugs that much of modern medicine has succumbed to. He believes in correcting the problem rather than masking the symptoms with a drug. Therefore, his years of experience with stem cells and other Regenerative Medicine fits well with the group and Dr. D’Orazio’s mission of getting you true health and well-being.
A polished speaker, Dr. D’Orazio provides free lectures for the Transcendental Meditation Movement. He enjoys gardening, cooking, and the outdoors, rock climbing, and living a healthy lifestyle.

Toby Stutzman, AMG Visitor
Toby selected his family in December 2019 at the Brandywine SPCA. He is a mix of Boxer, Pitbull, Australian Sheppard, and Yorkshire Terrier. He has no formal education, however, after months of persistent training, he will “leave it” after 5-8 repeat commands.
Famous for his goat-like stomach, Toby can eat just about anything, including; nerf darts, nylon gloves, potato chip bags, sticks, napkins, and legos, and never get sick. He prefers sugary carbs over proteins and meat, but feel free to give him any treat you’d like to share.
Toby visits on occasion with the Stutzman’s. He loves attention and especially enjoys his chest scratched and rubbed. When he is not at Aligned Medical, you’ll find him roaming his property chasing away fox and playing with his favorite toy, a big knotted rope.
