Review of Dr. Czarnecki


Dr Czarnecki is a wonderful doctor. He is very knowledgeable, not only in his own field , but in other medical disciplines as well. He is professional, kind and caring. He listens and spends quality time with you. He diagnosed my issues and quickly found solutions to help me manage my health problems. His staff is also wonderful. They work well with him and I felt that “Dr Mike” and his whole team is dedicated to your health. I know I am in good hands now and I feel so happy to have found him.

Review of Dr. Czarnecki


He told me that my lungs were fine & I needed a cardiologist. He referred me to a heart doctor that never called me. My PCP referred me to Chattanooga Heart Institute. The doctor there said he believed my problem was my lungs & not my heart. I was given a heart cath and echocardiogram which revealed he was correct. He referred me to a wonderful pulmonologist at Memorial who diagnosed my lung problem and got me better.

His “ office” in in imaging center. Wait time 2.5 hours while he is “ busy” playing with his younger female staff. You wait in the Hallway of imaging center in doorway. He may spend 5-7 minutes in room with patient......only to refer you for many test in same building....? .? Conflict of interest.

2 hour wait to be seen for 7 minutes! No diagnosis, just ordered unnecessary expensive test! Office is in another facility where you sit in the hallway while cans of waste are wheeled past you!

While displeased with my PET findings, that has nothing to do with Mike Czarnecki. I am a retired doctor and more critical of current practioners than the average person. I think Mike is outstanding with impeccable credentials. Most pulmonologists have a 3 year residency in Internal Med and a 1 year fellowship in pulmonary. He spent a full 3 years in each. He's a gem.

I hesitate to be so negative about a medical doctor, but my experience with him three years ago nearly killed me. His NP is good, but I cannot recommend him. At the time, he was more interested in taking his personal time off. Maybe he's gotten better since then.
