Care Philosophy

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.

He was a resident at Northwestern when my mother had the misfortune of having him as her surgeon. The Doctor that was supposed to operate fell and broke his arm. My mom walked into the hospital to have an aneurysm taken care of. Came home 10 months later unable to speak or care for herself. She was 44 years old. Never got a straight answer from him. Too bad we were so young - never answered for taking our mother, as we knew her, away from us. Never hear those stories

I had an appointment with Dr. Cerullo today and got a call 50 minutes before my appointment to cancel. The nurse told me that there was no reason for me to see him since he was sending me for epidural steroid injections. This could have been done earlier since the MRI was done almost a week ago. Also I would have appreciated an explanation from the doctor with my MRI results explaining the results and how the injection was different from what I previously had.
