Pay a Bill
Patients are frequently referred to see a thoracic surgeon anxious about the possibility of an operation. This is very often in the setting of a potential cancer, which only makes things harder for patients. Being a complete doctor for my patients, not just their surgeon, is a core tenet of my practice. Sometimes for a questionable lung nodule this means not recommending an operation, but instead offering a course of careful observation and gentle reassurance to the patient and their family. Other times it's walking a patient who does need surgery, step by step, through what can seem like a battery of tests. I view being available to my patients and their families, and being an empathetic and honest communicator as essential to helping people through what can be challenging times.
