in Perkasie, PA
Although I felt well informed about my condition, when I met with Dr Vernace he clarified many things for me. He answered all my questions and he also added to the information about my diagnosis. I left feeling very confident in my plans going forward.

He is a very caring and sympathetic physician. He explains things in terms that the patient can understand. He spends time with the patient and speaks slowly and with a great deal of compassion. One of the best doctors Doylestown Hospital employs.
