I was diagnosed with a large Cystic Bullae on my left lung. The images were quite daunting as the Cyst occupied about 60% of the chest on the left side. Of course, you immediately start to think about your mortality, family, etc. I interviewed several well known and well respected Thoracic Surgeons but within 15 minutes of meeting Dr. Scoma I knew he was the one. Honest, reassuring, confident, capable immediately came to mind. I had the surgery and everything was as Dr, Scoma said it would be.

Dr. Scoma is knowledgeable, empathetic, amazingly professional as well as highly respected by his colleagues. He goes above & beyond! His staff is equally as competent and very accommodating! I had an open vat lung procedure in 2011 and recently my husband had robotic assisted open vat to remove melanoma (Nov 2017). We received excellent care! Leslie & Jim Knowles, Lake Clarke Shores, FL

Dr. Scoma is an angel. I was bounced from one doctor to the next and dealing with insurance just trying to get a procedure done so I could get a diagnosis. He got me in so fast, scheduled procedure within a week. He was thorough, took his time and i had complete trust in him from the beginning. That is saying a lot. Highly recommend him. Nurses at hospital had nothing but the best to say about him.

I was diagnosed with carcinoma of the lung, found incidentally as I was in a car accident. The ER Doctor suggested a follow up CT of my lungs in three months. The date was 09/12. I followed up with a CT of my lungs. A lesion was noted and a PET scan was ordered the next day. I was then diagnosed with lung cancer.Dr.Scoma came to the office on his day off.i had aRobotic thoracotomy 9 days later. He showed compassion, caring and tremendous skill.I had an easy recovery and am NED. He saved me
