    Punctuation: comma

    Here is the sentence: "I chose xxxxx company which as stated in the message of John Smith, the xxxx Inc. Founder, coded 'millions of medical records over the past decade'.
    Is this an example of using commas for clarification, or between the parts of the phrase written in reverse order?

    Re: Punctuation: comma

    The original commas set off a phrase which adds an explanation of who John Smith is. IMO, you also need a comma after "which".
