The cadio thoracic team was excellent during my lung biopsy from the or to the floor. I actually only saw Dr DChuna twixe but he was very professional

Dr D.'s abilities in surgery aren a gift from God and I am so thankful he was there when I went critical and all the time he and his staff have spent with me over the past year and a half.

I was quite fortunate to be referred to Dr. Jonathan D'Cunha who is an expert cardio-thoracic surgeon. He was able to complete my lung surgery with no complications. I was confident in him from the first consultation last December through this most recent post-surgery follow-up. During that first visit, he explained all possible outcomes and what we would do in each situation depending upon the test results. He explained all biopsy and test results with patience. He spoke respectfully to the patient and friends and family who came to the office visits and during surgical appointments. I feel healthier today and ready to continue my additional medical treatment at Hillman Cancer Center which my final diagnosis requires. I was blessed to begin this medical experience with Dr. Jonathan D'Cunha.

December 12, 2014

I have the highest positive comments for Dr. D'Cunha. He is a highly intelligent, compassionate surgeon who respects and educates his patient and their family. He answers all questions skillfully and patiently. He lets his patient know that he will guide them through very difficult times in their life. A patient cannot ask for more than that.
