Patient Comments (2)
Phoenix, AZ |
I was referred to Dr Bichler due to suspicious indicators of lung cancer. The spots were in two separate CT scans. The doctorreferred me for a biopsy. When that was negative, just to be sure, he scheduled me for a pet scan (more detailed than CT scans), then a follow-up CT scan 3 months later. I was impressed that after each diagnostic procedure, he would call me on the phone immediately as test results were available. His office was helpful getting me scheduled for earliest possible lab tests.

I have had the pleasure of being treated by Dr. Bichler numerous times, and have always been more than happy with the results. He is extremely knowledgeable, personal, and professional, and takes the time to understand my concerns and explain his treatment and options. He is A number 1 in my book!
