Dr. Luigi Nalli,
Dr. Luigi Nalli or, as patients have gotten to know him, Dr. Lou, decided to pursue a career in healthcare primarily because of a personal medical condition when he was a child. At the age of five, he was diagnosed with Legg-Calve-Perthes disease which causes the blood supply to his hips to be interrupted and subsequently caused those bones to begin to die.
Through a combination of surgery and rehabilitation over more than a year, the condition resolved. However, the sequel of the condition lead to ongoing pain and injury issues in his hips and spine. He continued to manage these problems with care utilizing an array of physical rehabilitation professionals. This sparked his interest in overall physical health in an effort to help others dealing with similar issues, he went on to make this the primary area of his studies and eventually becoming a clinician provide care for those suffering with pain and injury problems.
When he began providing care for patients he quickly realized that the best management of patients
happened in multidisciplinary settings where multiple health professionals brought all their areas of
expertise to one patients care in an evidence based manner.
This is what lead to him starting his first practice in Etobicoke where he could put together the best team possible to provide the best care possible to patients. That team grew tremendously to include a diverse array of regulated health professionals that combined the best in complementary and traditional medicine to manage pain and injury. In effort to continue helping more and more people, PinPoint Health. In fact, the genesis of the name PinPoint Health was purposefully done since Dr. Lou’s belief was that, the best care was provided by pinpointing the right diagnosis of patient using a team approach and providing pinpoint management plan to the patient in that same team setting.
Dr. Lou’s personal values are the same that he has set out for PinPoint Health as an organization and include: having empathy, putting the patient first, professionalism, treating all equally, commitment to the highest quality care, improving well-being, being compassionate, and always continuing to learn through education.
