Dr. Marc J. DeVito, MD, FAAP
After receiving his Medical Degree (MD) from St. George’s University School of Medicine in 2003, Dr. DeVito completed a four-year residency program in both Internal Medicine and Pediatrics (Med/Peds) at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ). Dr. DeVito has board certifications in both Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. He is also a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics (FAAP) and is a Member of the American College of Physicians.
After his training, Dr. DeVito had joined a group practice in East Windsor, NJ, caring for newborns, children, adolescents and adults of all ages. He was affiliated with Princeton Medical Center.

Before becoming a physician, Dr. DeVito lived in New York City and worked as a nutritional consultant. This influenced his current integrative care approach on using the least amount of medicine necessary to achieve goals and utilizing healthy lifestyle changes such as optimizing nutrition, exercise, and weight management. In addition to diagnosing and treating chronic illnesses, Dr. DeVito’s background and main focus is in using safe and preventative treatments to achieve the highest quality of life for individuals and families.
Dr. DeVito enjoys the outdoors with his wife and three sons, playing the piano, partaking in high intensity fitness training, yoga and mindfulness-based meditation.
