Dr. Kozower exudes confidence as he explains what he can do to help your condition. I am Stage 3 non-small cell squamous lung cancer and the surgeon in my city said there was nothing he could do, I was too old (64), etc. The pulmnologist I went to forgot to relay the early lung cancer results for a year so I was already in a distrustful state. Dr. Kozower gave me hope and performed the surgery and I had a surprisingly rapid recovery. Plus he was always cheerful and friendly. Bless him.
