Why did you choose to become an osteopathic physician? My biggest influence was my father, Nicholas C. Scaccia, D.O. While growing up, I got to see firsthand the huge impact that a dedicated, astute, and caring osteopathic physician could have on their patients’ lives. I was “hooked” early on! I also took advantage of a truly great opportunity to enter private practice with my father for five years following training. I’ll never forget this invaluable experience.
Why do you support the MOA? The Maine Osteopathic Association is the voice of approximately 400 osteopathic physicians an additional 500 residents and students. It does a great job of serving its members with professional education, advocacy, and member services. The MOA is truly the voice of the osteopathic physicians in Maine while supporting our goals and professional agendas.
What can osteopathic physicians do to support the profession? Be active and have a voice right here at the state level! The MOA welcomes its members to serve on one of our six committees: program, membership, payer/payee, technology, finance, and legislative. Get involved!

What is Osteopathic Medicine?
Osteopathic medicine is a distinctive form of medical care founded on the philosophy that all body systems are interrelated and dependent upon one another for good health. This philosophy was developed in 1874 by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, who pioneered the concept of "wellness" and recognized the importance of treating illness within the context of the whole body.
