The People of WCA

When Dr. John Gambol first started practicing hyperbaric medicine in Florida more than 20 years ago, he assumed most of his patients would be scuba divers. But he was incorrect.

"I’ve always been interested in healthcare and once I started learning more and more I said, 'I want to be a part of that!' I want to see if I can find a way to make a difference."
