My review is almost 17 years overdue. In May 2003, I as admitted to the hospital due to breathing difficulty as well as the results of an x-ray. Dr. Surdaki was the pulmonologist assigned to me. His diagnosis was ARDS. I was in intensive care for 10 1/2 weeks with about a month of that in a drug-induced coma. After having a Tracheotomy, lung biopsy, and every tube under the sun attached, and most of all by the grace of God and the expert care of Dr. Surdaki, I was able to be moved to a rehab center where I learned to walk again and function again. One of favorite quotes from Dr. Surdaki when I was wanting more than ice chips was "We want to be aggressive, but we don't want to be cavalier." I continued to see him for a time post hospitalization. I returned full time to my teaching job by the 1st week in October. We moved from the area in 2006, but I scheduled an appointment with him in 2013 for a 10-yr checkup. I give him much credit for my complete recovery. He is the best!

For years my husband struggled with asthma. When he started seeing Dr. Surdacki he was using a rescue inhaler almost every hour of every day and struggled to breath. ER visits, medication changes and breathing treatments were a way of life. I can't begin to express how much better life is for my husband now since Dr. Surdacki took over his care. The doctor worked a miracle just by taking the time to look at everything like my husband's work and home life. We never feel as if we are just a dollar amount like most other doctors we have seen in the past. It has been 3 years now and we have had ZERO hospital visits for asthma. When my husband feels he's having a problem the staff have always been great about getting him treated by Dr. Surdacki or Lezlie. I can honestly say that I trust this Doctor and his practice to make sure my husband stays with me for many more years to come.

During my first visit with Dr. Surdacki, he spent an hour going through my history and thoroughly explaining the cause of my symptoms and treatment. Each visit, he and his staff spend more than enough time with me to ensure the treatments are working for me.

Made an appointment and when we arrived they they told us it was a different time and day. Very rude doctor and not willing to say they made a mistake is scheduling an appointment. Would not recommend them to anyone.

I was recently referred to Dr. Surdacki for a lung problem by my cardiologist. I was a little scared not knowing what was wrong. It was a joy to work with him. His reception staff already had my file set up; no waiting, my appointment was at 2:15, went right in. The Nurse PA did the work-up and I thought, ok probably wont see the Doctor. He actually came to the patient room and spent over 45 minutes answering my questions. He even went over my meds with me. I would recommend Dr. Surdacki 110%.

I was a nurse for over 35 years. In my career I worked with a handful of exceptional doctors, many average doctors, and some worse than average doctors. I found that Dr Surdacki and his Physician Assistant Leslie far exceeded my expectations and provided me with very thorough care. I was amazed at the amount of time they each spent counseling and educating me on my illness and my health. I would strongly recommend these providers to anyone in the metroplex needing pulmonology care.

If you're a fan of assembly line medicine, Dr. Surdacki is not your guy. Dr. Surdacki practices medicine the way he wants to, not dictated by a corporation. He spent a full hour with us answering all of our questions, making sure we completely understood our situation. Down to earth. No God complex as with many specialists. Every person in his office has a fabulous attitude, something I cannot say for most medical offices I deal with.

The two times I went to see Dr. Surdacki were a nightmare, Very long waits, the Doctor was rude and arrogant, He thought he was God's gift to Pulmonary Doctors, I'm changing today, If you want rudeness and long waits this is the Doctor for you.

Just like every other doctors office, be prepared to wait well past your appointment time, and pay money to spend 5 minutes with a doctor. That's a SLIGHT exaggeration; I was in their office for 58 minutes, and spent 8min6sec with the doctor. Yes, I timed them. Don't believe them when they say they're looking out for your best interests; they're looking out for their pocket book, and they will make you come in for every little thing and bill you for it.

My Mother was his patient. She passed way due to complication of a Heart surgery. But while under Dr. Surdacki's care, no one could have asked for a more amazing, caring and loving Doctor. He took wonderful care of her. He will forever hold a place in my heart. I recommend him to anyone that needs him.
