Have you seen Dr. Douglas Minnich?
July 5th, 2015
Dr. Minnich recently performed thoracic surgery on me. I could not be more pleased with him and his staff. If I had to call with questions, I was immediately put through to his office where I usually talked to his nurse practitioner on the phone. Dr. Minnich is a very thorough doctor who patiently answered any question that I had, explaining the answer in terms that I could understand. He was very friendly and courteous.

Professional demeanor. Explained things to my family in a way we could understand. Appreciate his help during a difficult time.

No one is ever excited about having to see a surgeon. Aside from that, my experience with Dr. Minnich was positive. He was delayed in the operating room so I did have to wait to be seen. The time spent with me was very thorough. It's nice when a surgeon discusses non-surgical choices as well. Overall positive experience.

Positive experience. There can be some wait time in the clinic but his time spent with you is worth it. Very professional. Explains in words you can understand.

We were referred to Dr. Minnich by our Physician in Mobile Alabama. My Dad had a CT Scan performed due to some suspicious areas on a chest x-ray of his lungs... and was then sent for a Pet Scan...The Pet Scan showed a high SUV and the doctors were really concerned that it was cancer. He needed a biopsy and the regular type of biopsy was risky and his age was a factor...He is 84 years old...So went saw Dr. Minnich at UAB for the Navigational Biopsy. Everything went well according to the doctor and he called us a few days later with the results. He told us the biopsy was benign and the area of concern was only scar tissue and inflammation...We went back to see my Dad's pulmonary doctor 2 weeks ago and they wanted to recheck the area with another pet scan....WEll now the area has grown some and there is another place that has come up in the center of his lungs....So according to Dr. Minnich he had no problem obtaining a good biopsy...BUT IF he had performed a good biopsy we would have known it was cancer then and we could have had it taken care of then with the cyber knight treatment...but thanks to Dr. Minnich now it's too late...I always though UAB was a state of the art hospital but our opinion has certainly changed now....
