I was diagnosed with parathyroid malfunction by my primary care physician. He referred me to an endocrinologist and after testing was referred to Dr Tufano. We live in Fort Myers and she wanted us to go to Sarasota because he is one of the best surgeons for this type diagnosis. I was having symptoms of dementia and very confused. I was admitted to the hospital for a dementia episode. I was having hallucinations and they recommended a memory care facility. My wife wanted to wait until my surgery was completed. So glad we did because the day after I was close to normal again. I have improved ever since and I'm able to drive again. We would highly recommend Dr Tufano to anyone that needs this type of surgery.
