Dr. Elton left and Dr Cauthen took my husband for his patient.First thing he did was give my husband prevanar to provent other lung dieseases.He is at the Lexington office for us.Dr.Greg Cauthen saw a spot on his lung and within 5 weeks we had CT and Biopsy and The Surgery to get that cancer out of the upper lobe of my Husband last July.Our whole family is so happy, that it happened so fast!Truth husband had smoked for 55 years and Quit July 12th,2016 Before the surgery!Lung function is 100% !
Always happy to see a great outcome.

As close to a death sentence as you can get. Long story short, he got my mother, sister in law and me in the basement of the hospital to tell us my brother had maybe a year to live with treatment. without it, 6 months. My brother was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and we only found out the moment dr Cauthen gathered us before Tim went in for a procedure to actually determine the extent of his illness. I would love for Dr Death to know to this day that Tim is still living and doing well!
As with any cancer diagnosis we quote statistics and hope patients do better than statistics. Our hospital doesn't even have a basement to have meetings with families. I believe in being upfront and honest with patients about their diagnosis. Miracles and better than expected outcomes can always happen.

Dr Cauthen is a straight shooter. He tells it they way he sees it. He has been great in keeping me as well as possible.
Great
