Full Review Rating Breakdown
Best Doctor, Period

I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer at another hospital and sought out Dr. Sercarz when the scheduled surgery fell through. It turned out to be the best medical decision we have ever made. He was the fifth ENT doctor we spoke with; we knew we finally found the right one. Dr. Sercarz is a rarity - a highly experienced, confident surgeon who takes total ownership and responsibility for his patient's well being. These qualities come across in abundance in how he behaves with his charges. Before the operation, Dr. Sercarz responded timely to every question and e-mail we sent his way, which really put us at ease. Due to the size of the tumor, the surgery was expected to be relatively challenging, which turned out to be the case. In addition, I had post-op complications that kept me in the hospital for a week. Throughout the whole ordeal, Dr. Sercarz continued manage my case personally, with multiple hourly follow-up with the nursing staff and daily bedside visits. After I was discharged, HE called to check up on me and deliver the lab results. I felt sooo cared for. I would recommend Dr. Sercarz to anyone who needs the best ENT.
