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.
