Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Singer "My philosophy of care is very simple is treat every patient as if they were a member of your own family. My father died of lung cancer at the age of 70. Prior to that, he had battled lymphoma and prostate cancer. My mother has survived kidney cancer, lung cancer, and heart disease. I suppose it's fair to say that I have come from a family of patients, not doctors. The blessing is that I have experienced what patients and their families go through during times of illness. Caring for patients as if they were a member of my own family allows me to find the strength to face the long hours and stress of being a cardiothoracic surgeon."

Doctor Singer is an excellent surgeon and and an excellent man. He really cares about his patients. He treated myself, my wife, and my family with the utmost respect. He often went above and beyond what I expected. He gave me a new lease on life and I will never forget him or anyone associated with the Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest. He is the best Doctor that I ever had.

The thought of Surgery for an Aortic Valve replacement at age 70 was more than traumatizing to me and my wife. But meeting Dr. Singer changed all that. He took the time to explain the entire procedure to us . And when he saw that we were beyond the point of being scared he went beyond just the medical reports and made us feel that he understood how we felt. And we were more than just his patients that we were now a part of his family! And gave us both a positive attitude before we left.

I was so worried about my open heart surgery to replace my aortic valve and aorta--needless worry, thanks to Dr. singer. He's the most skilled surgeon on, at least, the East coast. Don't hesitate to call on your own if you know you need any heart surgery. Along with his excellent skill set, he is fun and concerned about all his patients. I was out of the hospital the fifth day--up, walking, talking with friends, etc. only thing that hurt a bit was the sternum, but that was fine in four week
