Dr. Leonard J. Cerullo, MD

Neurosurgery | Male | 72 years old

I believe in treating the whole person, not just the disease. I think it is important to utilize the highest technology combined with the best communication, with the patient, the family, and the other treating physicians. Being available to the patient at all times and encouraging open and honest communication is essential. I believe that healing requires the spirit, as well as the body. If the patient is not part of the healing process, he or she becomes part of the disease.Read more
