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.

Professional , I was kept updated . Dr KRANTZ has a very good bedside manners. He spoke slowly so my husband and I can understand my current situation and the approach that he is planning with our approval of course. I had detailed instructions from him and the nurse - the step by step to follow prior to surgery
He is an excellent doctor very thorough explaining everything to you In language you can understand.
Dr. Krantz spent a considerable amount of time making me feel at ease, and outlining my options for surgery.
I like Dr Krantz very much. I recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Frantz was so informative and explained everything so clearly and carefully discussed the options. I felt like I was in.very good hands.
Excellent doctor and staff team
I was well served by Dr. Seth Krantz and his young doctor colleague (Dr. Atar???)
Dr Krantz explained my prognosis and treatment plan consisting of followup in 6 months.
Not only is Dr. Krantz an extremely skilled surgeon, he is thorough in his explanations, compassionate, very caring, and always goes the extra mile. Thank you, Dr. Krantz.
I am fortunate to have a team that works with and for me.
