Philosophy of Care

At the Center for Lung and Thoracic Disease, my philosophy is to offer prompt and efficient evaluation to all of my patients. I believe in the importance of good personal communication with patients and their families, as well as referring physicians. My goal is that every cancer patient will have a work-up completed and a treatment plan defined with a few days of his or her first phone call to our office. We aim to offer the latest in diagnostics and minimal invasive surgical technologies when possible.

    Dr Szwerc is very thorough, very caring...sits with you so you feel there is no rush, shares films, blood work, gives all pertinent information, answers questions. I never leave a visit feeling a lack. I trust him implicitly

    Dr didn't actually tell me exactly what he believed my issues were. He said we needed to proceed quickly even though the referral sat from August17 until I was contacted the last week in September
