Mount Nittany Health is pleased to announce that Sebastian Sylvestre, MD joins Mount Nittany Health’s Allergy and Immunology practice.

“After completing my medical training in Pennsylvania, I decided to pursue a career with Mount Nittany Health because it is a leader in healthcare within the State College community,” said Dr. Sylvestre. “I was impressed by the great variety of medical services available here, which really made me feel like I was joining a premier healthcare institution.”

Dr. Sylvestre holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in biology from Boston University. He also earned his medical degree from Boston University School of Medicine before completing both his residency in Pediatrics and his fellowship in Allergy and Immunology at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center.

Dr. Sylvestre’s philosophy of care is to collaborate with each patient by listening to their concerns and implementing evidence-based care in an individualized manner. His background in both Pediatrics and Allergy and Immunology enables him to uniquely tailor care to both children and adults alike.

“As Allergy and Immunology can often be a specialty of fine nuances, utilization of a shared decision-making process will typically guide treatment options to an answer that is best for patients and that they are most comfortable with,” said Dr. Sylvestre.

Volunteerism and advocacy are two hallmarks of Dr. Sylvestre’s career. As an undergraduate student in Boston, he volunteered at the Boston Marathon. During medical school, he advocated for increased academic and support services for individuals with disabilities. Then during his Pediatrics residency, he was able to do a rotation abroad in Ghana in a resource-limited hospital.

“I have always tried to make myself available in service to others,” said Dr. Sylvestre.

Being outdoors is a special interest to Dr. Sylvestre, who stays fit by playing soccer, tennis, jogging, hiking, and skiing.

“I always try to keep moving,” said Dr. Sylvestre. “I’m fortunate that State College is so close to some really great outdoor activities and the convenience of a local airport that can connect to other major airports is also a great thing.”

The Mount Nittany Health Allergy and Immunology practice offers it services at 1850 East Park Avenue in State College. For more information or to schedule an appointment visit or call 814-278-4688.
