My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

"Patients don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care." I have never forgotten the message shared with me by an esteemed Professor during my first year of medical school many years ago. The thought of being a caring physician rather than strictly a clinician immediately struck a chord with me. This ideal has continued to serve as my core value when working together with my patients. Throughout my career as a Family Physician, I have enjoyed getting to know my patients, listening to their personal histories, and learning their individual concerns. In addition to diagnosis and treatment, my role is to educate, coach, and support my patients through the full spectrum of their personalized care. I look forward to working with you in the MDVIP program to promote your health and wellness. I am the MD, yet you are clearly the VIP!

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Serio

from Lynn in FL November 1, 2022 for Thomas G. Serio, MD

It recently dawned on me that, before TWO doctors made critical errors, I donated 2 four hour days a week helping out people I did not know. For years. Good News Outreach Food Pantry and Inmate Rehab. That I had lungs that were, medically speaking, 45 years younger than they are now, according to Dr. Gredler. That before CHP (Capital Health Plan) destroyed records, while I STILL had… See more

from Christine in FL March 25, 2022 for Thomas G. Serio, MD

My husband has bronchiectasis & GERD. He is prone to bacterial infections in his lungs due to aspirating food into his lungs because the epiglottis doesn’t completely close over his wind pipe when he swallows food. A few weeks ago, he got one of these infections and I called the pulmonologist to request that he call in a prescription for antibiotics and prednisone (the usual treatment for… See more

Over the past few years my husband has had to deal with a progressively debilitating back problem. Dr. Serio has been supportive in referring him to a local neurosurgeon who ultimately performed a laminectomy and fusion at L3-4 on 5/4/21. Prior to this surgery, my husband endured several years of “pain management” procedures and medications meant to alleviate pain. After his surgery, the… See more

from John in FL March 30, 2020 for Thomas G. Serio, MD

The truth is I could write a great TV series easy there has been many times Dr. Serio has come through for me and my son. So we start with the first episode late in the evening a bad asthma attack call the office to see who is on call. Dr. Serio answers no machine he is still at the office. I explained the situation and ask him why he was still working "just getting caught up Where do you… See more

from AL in FL March 27, 2020 for Thomas G. Serio, MD

Don't want to become emotional in sharing my stories. Therefore, I will pass. But, for more than 20 yrs., Dr. Serio has me feeling like I'm only 20 yrs. young today.

Dr. Serio is a brilliant, caring, and excellent physician. He is always responsive to my families medical needs. And during these past few years, they have been substantial. As a diagnostician, he has amazing skills. As if that isn’t enough, he is always researching new treatments that may be available to help my husband live with his chronic pain and stage 4 cancer. Dr. Serio and his staff… See more

from ROBERT in FL March 13, 2020 for Thomas G. Serio, MD

I've been part of the "system" and I hated it! Dr Serio's office is a 360 turn around compared to the others. I love that you have a good amount of time to TALK to Dr. Serio. That's how he gets to know you and can devise a health plan that fits YOU not the average person. At first I thought it was rather expensive but the attention we get is worth the expense. Dr. Serio takes the time and… See more

from Shannon in FL March 13, 2020 for Thomas G. Serio, MD

Dr. Serio has been our family doctor for 20 plus years. When he joined MDVIP, we followed him even though money was always tight for us. Any way starting about 8 years ago, I unfortunately started my path way to becoming legally blind. How did Dr. Serio help, you may ask. Well for one he was a counselor, and a person I could talk to about all the issues and tests. Mind you my wife and I went… See more

from Christine in FL March 11, 2020 for Thomas G. Serio, MD

My husband and I are both over 65. I am pretty healthy. But my husband has a number of pre-existing conditions (heart and back). Dr. Serio was our primary care doctor before he joined MDVIP. He was a very caring and knowledgeable doctor. But, whenever we had an appointment, it wasn't uncommon that we would have to wait up to 2 hours in his office before he was able to see us. He… See more
