Six years following a lung transplant, Dr. Pilewski continues to be informative, research-based, thoughtful and very kind. He is a genuine, patient human being who takes the time to see not only my condition but ME. He leads with intelligence and compassion and despite my reluctance to follow some orders, I always know I'll get straight-shooting directions in return.
