A Word From John Tomasula, MD

Medical care today is full of pitfalls for each of us. Deciding where and when to obtain care, what procedures to undertake, and what to avoid is paramount. Patients are faced with numerous choices and therefore need to be armed with maximum information prior to making decisions. Common sense advice is rare but is my main focus when discussing options with patients. The mission of Verywell correlates closely with my own and provides education and options to patients for their care.
