Dr Baptiste performed lung surgery for my cancer located behind my lung May 2016. He was friendly and very professional. Unfortunately my cancer has spread to my abdominal lymph node so he will be performing surgery again in 2018. I completely trust him and believe he is the best.

Dr. Baptiste performed surgery on my mother. I thought he did an excellent job for the circumstance. He answered all of my questions open and honestly. Very informative and professional. I also felt he was as comforting as he could be for the difficult situation.
