Whether you are a physician or patient, we think you’ll find the conversation with Dr. Jeffrey Puglisi a meaningful one.

“Many patients always ask me, or residents that I’m teaching ask me, ‘What’s the difference between a good doctor and a great doctor?’ And I always say that the difference is accessibility.
