Thoracic and Cardiac Surgery

The cardio. thor. dept. is very efficient and put me at ease regarding the CT biopsy that I needed to get today, 6/25/18

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Lace. He always listens and does whats best for me.

excellent care

Both Doctors Lace and Dcunha made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Lace went over my scans and explained everything in words I could understand. I feel in very good hands.

I had an appointment with Dr. deCuhna. Instead, Do. Lace saw me. He went over my condition with me. We set dates for two procedures which involved alternatives. Dr. Lace said he would review with Dr. de Cunha and get to me. It has now been a week and no answer.

The UPMC team review everything since my surgery on 12/4/2017 and schedule future test for me. The Doctor, Physician Assistant, Nurses, office staff and x ray tech did a outstanding job

Drs D Cunha and Lace have both been very nice, pre op and post op. Laura was very helpful coordinating the surgery and arrangements concerning the pre op tests.

my post op visit with Dr Lace was amazing. I felt I had his full attention and he responded to all of my questions and comments. I left there feeling that he not only heard everything I had to say but really was going to respond to my concerns. I would look forward to future visits with him. he never rushed or moved through the visit just to get the info he needed for his note. I felt like I was his only patient and could have as much time as I needed. he is an amazing man with an amazing bed side manner.

Very Good

almost a 3 hour wait to see the doctor beyond my appointment time

waited 1 1/2 hours after appointment to see doctor.

the doctor explained everything very well and listened and answered my questions.
