The best there is!

I (at a very young age) was diagnosed with a lung carcinoid and chose Dr Kucharczuk as my surgeon. This Doc is a very capable surgeon. He explained the problem, my options in the most professional and compassionate way. My family members (who were obviously very distraught) felt like Dr K was a part of the family in the way he communicated compassionately. He was available whenever we wanted him and accessible by email (yes email!). My surgery (a rather complex one) went without a hitch and I came through alive :)Dr K is the man to go to if you have any serious issue with your lung. His team at the Penn Luncg Center are all all-stars!!Thank you Dr K from me and my family.
