20 years ago Dr. Schaerf performed a lobectomy on my left lung due to tumor. The next year, due to a rare infection, my right lung turned to "a fist of goo" per Dr. Schaerf. He let me know I was in dire condition and could have died. I woke up in ICU with him by my side. He said "It was the worst thing" he'd seen in his career. I wasn't expected to live 5 more years. I'm still here thanks in large part to this amazing, caring, wonderful doctor. Thanks Ray!!!

Amazing professional: I can not tell you more about his kindness and caring that exceeds any other professional I have EVER worked with!!! He spends time with you as a patient and cares for every aspect of your needs, including fear, amazing clinical expertise and most of all kindness and compassion. I have had a pacemaker for over 40 years and have never had a lead extraction that was successful until my surgery with Dr Schaerf. Fabulous! Thank you for being you!
