I am a Catholic priest in WV who used to be a Physician's Assistant. I was diagnosed in WV with an acoustic neuroma. I asked to go to Hopkins and was assigned to Dr. Rafael Jesus Tomargo. It was a large tumor, my surgery was 9.5 hours long. Dr. Tomargo has great bedside manner. He explained everything well and with confidence. Basically, recovery has gone exactly as he told me it would. Dr. Wade Chien assisted him. I am grateful to both men.I also get to mention in my homilies that "Jesus" really was my surgeon. I have nothing but praise for Johns Hopkins and the surgical team who helped me. Be not afraid.
