What People Say About Dr. Roman Petrov, MD
RecentMost Helpful

Dr. Petrov was recommended to me by my kidney surgeon when a cancerous mass was found in my lung. He was very thorough in his evaluation determining that it was cancer. I had a lung lobectomy performed by Dr. Petrov. The surgery was successful and fully recovered. Dr. Petrov and his staff did an excellent job explaining the surgery and what to expect afterward. He did a thorough assessment of all surrounding lymph nodes and successfully removed the tumor while being faced with my congenital lung deformity. I have made a full recovery. Dr. Petrov is an excellent surgeon and a compasssionate doctor but he also also lays all the facts on the table with respect to your treatment. I would definitely recommend Dr. Petrov as a thoracic surgeon.

I had a hiata hernia and severe COPD. Dr. Petrov performed my surgery, everything went well. The only pain medication I needed, when returning home, was over the counter pain killers. I noticed an improvement in my breathing within two weeks. I would highly recommend Dr. Petrov. I was very pleased with the speedy recovery and positive outcome.

After my diagnosis for lung cancer my pulmonologist recommended Dr Petrov. Within a couple of weeks I saw him and everything just flowed smoothly from there. He explained everything to me and my family. He also coordinated with my oncologist, my pulmonary doctor, radiation oncologist, and family doctor. My family and I are very grateful for Dr Petrov. Knowledgeable caring and great bedside manner.

I would recommend Dr. Petrov to do your surgeries. He listened to my concerns,detailed my lung surgery and was available when ever needed. His professionalism and his great sense of humor are a winning combination especially when a patient is new to removal surgery of a cancerous lung. He followed up with me many times and always took the time to hear me and my concerns. Thank you very much, Doc.

I am truly thankful for Dr.Petrov. He is such a knowledgeable, attentive and compassionate surgeon. I received workup prior to surgery with prompt results and detailed explanations. He made me feel very comfortable going into surgery and provided me with a clear picture of what to expect pre/postoperatively. I had surgery to help with my reflux issues and it went very well. I couldn't be more pleased with how I'm feeling postoperatively. Dr.Petrov and his staff provide utmost quality care.
