Specialties

Dr. Thomas E Kowalsky has the following 2 specialties

  • Surgery
  • Vascular Surgery

    Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
    They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

Great surgeon, poor office staff.

Dr. Kowalsky is a wonderful surgeon. He performed my laparoscopic cholecystectomy and I did extremely well after the surgery. However, his office staff is a different matter entirely. On my postoperative visit the staff somehow "misplaced" my chart and I was left to sit in the waiting room for over an hour. Patients came and went, and no one ever checked on me.

Goes the extra mile

Dr. Kowalsky is an outstanding doctor. He successfully performed my elderly mother's AAA surgery. When she later died due to unrelated complications, he went out of his way to cooperate with the autopsy request and stayed in touch. He knew I was an attorney and talked to me anyway -- this made all the difference for me and my family. Not all lawyers want to sue everyone they meet and so many doctors won't talk to lawyers, even if they are patients or family members. Thank-you Dr. K., we still are grateful to you this 4 years later.
