On September 19, 2012, the American Liver Foundation will name Thomas D. Schiano, MD, “Physician of the Year”.  Dr. Schiano is being given this award for his tremendous devotion to patients and for his research into finding a cure for liver diseases.  We know of no physician more deserving of this tremendous honor. Everyone at MedHelp congratulates Dr. Schiano and want him to know how honored we are to have him on our team!

Since 2006, Dr. Schiano has generously donated his time and expertise to answer liver transplant questions in MedHelp’s Liver Transplant Forum.  Our members not only get information and advice from one of the best doctors in the country, but also from one who is truly devoted to helping liver disease patients better understand all the choices available to them when facing liver transplantation.
