What People Say About Dr. Himalaya Lele, MD

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

My family and I loved Dr. Lele and his staff. He is personable and cares about his patients. His staff is most helpful as well as very welcoming. If I ever need a surgeon for my lungs again I will be happy to return to him.

Dr. Lele is excellent. I was very hesitant about the procedure he performed. Dr. Lele took his time to discuss the situation I was facing. His patience and explanation put me at ease. The results were perfect. His support staff is wonderful, very efficient and delightful to work with. I highly recommend Dr. Lele and DFW Thoracic and Lung Surgery.

This was my first face-to-face meeting with Dr. Lele. From the moment I made the initial call to the day of my appointment, the staff was very polite, patient, and professional. They immediately greeted me with kind words, treated me with great regard, made sure that I was comfortable. My interactions with Dr. Lele were just as satisfying. He spoke with great knowledge, motivation, and clarity and truly listened to my concerns. I was truly impressed with Dr. Lele and his staff.

Dr. Elle is all you can ask for as a surgeon. He explained the procedure and what to expect after surgery. He was very informative and kind. He went the extra step to get records from my lung doctor faxed immediately to ensure he could safely perform the procedure we had discussed remove nodules from my lung.

Doctor stressed the need for immediate surgery. It was scheduled easily enough with his office. Surgery scheduled for Noon; finally taken in at 3:45. No one seemed to know where he was. He was in surgery at another hospital, but did not have the courtesy to let us know. My husband was an emotional wreck by the time Lele got to him. Not acceptable behavior.
