What People Say About Dr. Tiago Machuca, MD
Reply
Dr. Machuca recently operated on my wife. He removed the middle lobe of her right lung due to the presence of a suspicious nodule that could not be biopsied. He operated robotically and the surgery was successful. Before the surgery he explained the procedure and process to us in detail and he has a great bedside manor. In our opinion he is an outstanding surgeon.
