in San Pedro, CA |
Dr. Tufano saved my life. I had a thyroid cancer that was quite invasive and his delicate surgery skills was able to remove the cancer and literally save me.
in Bowie |
He is an amazing surgeon and his staff is just as wonderful as he is. After a botched surgery by another surgeon, Dr. Tufano along with Dr. Russell put my health and my life back on track. They are extremely talented and reassuring. They are easy to talk too and although I had a 7 hour surgery where my life or quality of life was in question, I entered into that surgery very relaxed and confident in their abilities. If you have Dr. Tufano as a surgeon, you are blessed.
