I would like to take this opportunity to highly recommend Dr. Lele of the Cardiothoracic Surgery & Lung Center in Dallas. He & his staff are extremely knowledgeable, compassionate professionals that helped me through a very difficult time and I could not have wished for a more caring, competent doctor for my treatment. Professional, caring and generous with their time in going over all the necessary procedures & followup.

When I got there for first appointment he proceeded to tell me what he saw in comparing my cat scans and that we needed to act immediately to see what was going on. But he doesn’t believe in operating first. With in days he scheduled the scoping procedure. Yahoo! Now he knew what we were dealing with. He scheduled me an Oncologist. Huge thanks to Dr Lele.

Dr Lele was very personable and explained everything about my upcoming lung surgery in layman’s terms so that I could understand. He made a very positive impression on me. He also moved heaven and earth to make sure I got appointments with the doctors who needed to check out my heart and my PFT so that I could have my surgery ASAP! I really appreciate that! I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a thoracic surgeon.

If there were zero stars I would have given him that. My wife recently had a surgery scheduled with Dr Lele. We showed at the hospital early that morning (6:30 am) and my wife Was set up with IV etc... at about 8:30 one of the hospital staff came in and told us he would be in about 30 minutes late because of an issue with a teenage daughter. We were ok with this, things happen. Then about 20 minutes someone on the Hospital staff came in to inform us that the procedure had been canceled due to an emergency at another hospital. No contact with us from the Dr. We had all taken off from work, in addition to the fact that we had five other family members who had taken a day off from work to be there for her. We received no other contact from the Dr office so my Wife had to recontact the office to try and reschedule another date. The next day my wife experienced an episode in which she couldn’t eat, drink, or swallow anything. The Dr office told us to go to ER he was on call. No show. Bad
