Yesterday called to validate our appointment. After long hold time, 3 transfers (told no appointment), spoke to office clerk Wendy who said a letter was sent last Wednesday firing us as patient. Was this an outcome from a call he and I had early last week? I shared how to reduce hold times. Told him a CPAP provider was waiting orders 4 weeks. He said they were being fired. Told him 2nd group had similar issues. He said all due to COVID; not they closed the other 3 offices furloughing staff. I asked nicely for him to call me, but no response. Today, 6 days after the letter, 3rd CPAP provider called saying he just gave our name for a new CPAP yesterday. Why? What would you do if having an appointment, driving 30 - 40 minutes each way to find out the doctor had terminated any relationship without explanation? It is sad he takes offense to a recommendation; then violate his patient duty – is it Hippocratic or hypocritic oath? No wonder so many people rate him as 1 on evaluations.

This Doctor is not someone that can be trusted. He treats patients like they are his money making mashine and like patients don't matter. Very unprofessional and unwilling to listen, nor to give you time. Almost like he is paying you to come in and not vice versa. Maybe he would be a better car dealer because Doctor he is not. If you are about your health do not go to him.

I was a new patient with Copd and Emphysema. This was the worst experience i have ever encountered. The office staff fails to complete necessary paperwork for insurance providers in a timely fashion. Can take weeks, and they refuse to take action even when they are aware of their inadequacies. I feel you are just a number not a person to them. Was prescribed harsh medications on first visit instead of the medications that were working great for me with no tests to justify. When on the phone with my insurance company on 3 way call per my insurance to try and get them to follow up i was treated rudely and told that they would no longer see or help me period. I would highly advise seeking a group that has consideration for the people they make good money on. Very disappointed. I found a real Pulminologist and recommend to all to avoid this group. Their reviews speak for them unquestionably.

Do not use this Dr Czarnecki, he is very incompetent! My daughter seen him for fluid on her lung & had the fluid removed for testing & because he didn’t put it in the orders to be sent off it was discarded. So know we can’t find out What caused the fluid, all he had to say to us was she only 30 she will be fine. Diseases don’t know age! He tried to blame the mess up on the out patient center but it was clearly in the report that he had no orders for it to be sent off. If your wise please find a real pulmonologist it could be life ore death to you!

Saw this doctor while I was hospitalized for 3 days. He spent only 5 minutes with me each day, was absolutely the worst experience I’ve ever had. This doctor wouldn’t listen to my questions, always talked over me , and in a big hurry. He did not pay attention and gave me misinformation. Now I’m home and get a bill for $1000. Totally ridiculous and I will not see this doctor for follow up, I will go to a professional physician and one who truly cares about me and that I can trust.

Dr Czarnecki is a wonderful doctor. He is very knowledgeable, not only in his own field , but in other medical disciplines as well. He is professional, kind and caring. He listens and spends quality time with you. He diagnosed my issues and quickly found solutions to help me manage my health problems. His staff is also wonderful. They work well with him and I felt that “Dr Mike” and his whole team is dedicated to your health. I know I am in good hands now and I feel so happy to have found him.

He told me that my lungs were fine & I needed a cardiologist. He referred me to a heart doctor that never called me. My PCP referred me to Chattanooga Heart Institute. The doctor there said he believed my problem was my lungs & not my heart. I was given a heart cath and echocardiogram which revealed he was correct. He referred me to a wonderful pulmonologist at Memorial who diagnosed my lung problem and got me better.

His “ office” in in imaging center. Wait time 2.5 hours while he is “ busy” playing with his younger female staff. You wait in the Hallway of imaging center in doorway. He may spend 5-7 minutes in room with patient......only to refer you for many test in same building....? .? Conflict of interest.

While displeased with my PET findings, that has nothing to do with Mike Czarnecki. I am a retired doctor and more critical of current practioners than the average person. I think Mike is outstanding with impeccable credentials. Most pulmonologists have a 3 year residency in Internal Med and a 1 year fellowship in pulmonary. He spent a full 3 years in each. He's a gem.

I hesitate to be so negative about a medical doctor, but my experience with him three years ago nearly killed me. His NP is good, but I cannot recommend him. At the time, he was more interested in taking his personal time off. Maybe he's gotten better since then.
