Care Philosophy

The health care industry is plagued by several issues today.  These include but are not limited to physician shortages, excessive unnecessary care and lack of transparency, all of which result in large amounts of money wasted in the health care field.  These problems can be amplified if you live and practice in rural areas and patients are required to spend several hours traveling to receive essential and basic care.  Patients can be lost in the shuffle of big city health care, which can sometimes result in negative outcomes and an overall stigma that quality healthcare is unattainable. 

Our highly skilled team uses the comprehensive lung care model to increase access to care, affordable screenings, subsequent treatments, access to advanced technology to bring quality health care to a large area of Central and Western Pennsylvania.  We believe in the fact that early adoption of innovative therapies for lung diseases coupled with personalized treatments can save lives, improve quality of life and potentially reduce the health care expenditure.

Every patient deserves the best quality of care.  Care that is affordable, patient centered, individualized and built on evidence based medicine, innovation and leadership in the healthcare and technology field.

Love Dr. Bansal - my only issue is usually scheduling/call center - not a fault of anyone, just the way it is w/system. Very encouraging, lovely staff - I do recommend!

Kindness Doctor I ever went too. Genuinely cares about you!
in SMETHPORT |
Dr. Bansal is very kind, caring and thorough. I did have a lengthy wait as they were behind schedule but when I did see him I was very satisfied. He personally apologized to me for the long wait and didn't want me to think this was the norm for his office. He explains everything in detail and takes the time to listen to the patient. The waiting room was chilly, so dress warm.
in Latrobe, PA |
As a patient undergoing bronchial thermoplasty, I am thrilled to be in the care of Dr Bansal. So far my experience during office visits and two procedures has been excellent. He is professional yet friendly and a man of his word. I am blessed to have found him for my condition. I would recommend him to my family, friends and many others. Five stars are not enough. He rates a ten.
