About Us

PatientTalk.com is a health care site website for patients diagnosed with life altering medical conditions, both acute and chronic. This network-quality video site features actual patients and health care professionals sharing vital information about the practical, physical and emotional issues that patients face before, during and after an initial diagnosis.

Who created PatientTalk.com?

The concept of PatientTalk.com was created by John P. Symes, formerly president of MGM Worldwide Television. The inspiration for the website came from John’s own experience after his wife of 30 years, Meg, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001. When Meg turned to friends who were breast cancer survivors for practical information she couldn’t find on medical websites, John realized that there was a need for advice from real patients about the issues they faced.
