"I'll probably go back to him. I'm still alive and kicking. They've kept me informed as to what goes on with me and I'm still alive and kicking." The office environment is nice. Dr.
himself is probably in the OR most of the time so you wind up dealing with his staff mostly except when he actually does some dirty work on you and then comes by to see if you're still breathing. The last time, we actually got in and out before our appointment. Our appointment was supposed to be at 2:15 and we got in a little early and was out.

"I needed surgery urgently in December to repair a herniated disc. Fortunately, Dr.
was available to operate at St.
" 's Medical Center with my neuro surgeon. He only had about 24 hours notice. I didn't get to meet him until just before surgery, and he explained what he needed to do to open the ribs to provide access for the neuro surgeon to get to the spinal disc. Apparently Dr.
and the neuro surgeon worked very well together, and Dr.
did a great job. About 4 days later, Dr.
checked up on me in the hospital room, and he removed a drainage tube from my chest with no pain as he pulled it out. About 4 weeks after surgery, I met Dr.
for a follow up visit, and he explained how to start stretching out the chest muscles. He seems to really care about his patients, and he takes time to explain what he is going to do and to answer questions. Based on my experience, he is an excellent thoracic surgeon.

One of our basic rights as United States citizens — to speak freely — is in jeopardy.

In a small, but scary trend, a growing niche of health care providers are requiring patients to sign away their rights to comment openly, anonymously, publicly and privately about the level of service they receive from physicians — good or bad.

Thoracic Surgery reviews in Charlotte

A

Rating
She is very skilled in areas of wound care. Her precision as a surgeon is evident when she must clean out the wound, she has a steady, obviously skilled hand. She offered my son some topical anesthetic--which no other doctor has done. He really appreciated that kindness. She has fantastic staff, they are all knowledgeable and helpful. The most difficult part is that she only sees patients 2 mornings a week. So availability is a challenge, but she has always been there when we needed her.

We got the head of Thoracic surgery at the Intermountain Medical Center and had no complains in the manner
of care and explanations and attitude of the surgeon. We were lucky to be referred to him by our general practitioner.
The explanations, surgical work, and check-ins were very well done and we felt confident that he did the surgery...More /> and got the results we were hoping for. Would recommend him in future to others needing heart or

He is a friend of ours. He is awesome. He is great at cardiology. My husband is doing fine, but 15 years ago he had some difficult surgery. He is the best. He is very well known in the area. He knows his stuff.

He was wonderful, and I would recommend him to anybody.He has a very caring attitude. My husband went into the hospital and he even knew when my next appointment was, and he is so caring, that he knows when his patients next appointment is. His staff is super. If I ever had a concern, they were right there to answer it. He was very good with communication.

He's a great doctor and I'd absolutely recommend him! The follow-up for the procedure has been great and I'll definitely stay with him. The staff are all very friendly and the office seems to be run well.

He was great. He set up the exam table like an easel, and
Charlotte Thoracic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
a picture of the anatomy involved on the paper covering it; listened to our concerns and answered our questions; laid out a schedule for biopsy and surgery that was expeditious.
The logistics of the arrangements did not go so well, due to a communication breakdown somewhere, and we had a scramble at the last minute to make the surgery happen. (The low rating in billing and admin is related to this.) However, it did happen, and seems to have gone well.
(With this kind of surgery, we may not know effectiveness of treatment for some time, hence my "N/A" on that question.)

I know that she is up to date on things. She treats me like I'm a knowledgeable person. We can disagree with each other in terms of care, but she will give me her honest opinion regarding new treatment methods. I began going to her in 2013, since I had my first

put in. The communication with her is excellent. She treats me with respect.

Full disclosure: I am a faculty member at the
Charlotte Thoracic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
Medical Institutions. This review is, however, an objective assessment Dr.

and not of the
Charlotte Thoracic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
Hospital in general (or even the cardiology department).
I had been having chest pains for several months when I had a catheterization at
Charlotte Thoracic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
Hospital which revealed 4-5 severe blockages that required bypass surgery. The blockages were not amenable to stenting. In any event, I was scheduled for surgery the next week with Dr.

. The surgery was cancelled and rescheduled because Dr.

was called in the night before my surgery for an emergency

transplantation. He then had a death in his family and had to travel to
Charlotte Thoracic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
for the funeral. He nevertheless kept in contact with his staff to follow-up on patients. I underwent surgery a week after the original appointment.
Hopefully, you will never require the specialized services that Dr.
Charlotte Thoracic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
provides. But if you do, he is the man you want for the surgery. I was particularly impressed by his calmness and Zen-like demeanor. It is very comforting for a patient to be in the hands of such a calm, confident, and skilled, physician.
