Open test index, select the test in question, then review information about that test including links to related diseases.  There is also an index of conditions where individual diseases/conditions are described in detail.

Patient Testimonials

“Dr. Ness has been taking good care of me since 1988. Last year I needed major shoulder surgery and he referred me to an orthopedic surgeon who had the same compassion and medical values as Dr. Ness. Major surgery is no picnic, but with the kind and caring support of Dr. Ness, my surgeon and the team at Woodwinds Health Campus, my recovery was faster than expected, I was able to start physical therapy sooner and get my life back to normal. I credit the success of my surgery and recovery to the relationship between Dr. Ness and I, and in him knowing not only my medical history, but knowing me as a person and providing the level of care based on that knowledge. By the way, the day after I returned home from the hospital, Dr. Ness called to see how things went and more importantly how I was doing.”
