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!

from Edward in FL January 19, 2024 for Thomas G. Serio, MD

There have been several times when I needed help with a solution to my medical issue. However, the one that stands out the most is when I had a kidney stone and another doctor busted it up with sound waves. I was in cruetiating pain, vomiting and shaking. That doctor gave me some pain pills that were intended to alleviate my pain. When i took one I would have nausea within minutes and the… See more

I had just turned 50 in 2002, and Dr. Serio noticed a small "bump" in my annual physical EKG differing from the previous year's EKG record. Because I had a family history of cardiac issues, and even though I "apparently" wasn't personally having any indications of that, he referred me to a cardiac specialist for a stress test, based on my age and familyt history… See more

I have had the pleasure of being part of MDVIP here in Tallahassee, FL. After countless doctors brushing off my pain (both physical and psychological) Dr. Serio was the first to take me seriously and furthermore, make me feel important, comfortable, and take as much time as I needed during our visits or over the phone. The app makes it easy to reach him at both of our conveniences. Lauren,… See more

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

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.
