Messages from our patients

Read the messages sent to our pulmonology care providers on National Doctors' Day.

"Dr. Nesketa is by far the best doctor or even person I have ever met. He is very thorough, very knowledgeable. He seems to genuinely care for his patients, from the bottom of my heart thank you Dr. Nesketa!!! Also my lungs thank you!!!" - Shelby

"Dr. Waring, On behalf of the family of Frances O. please accept our heart-felt gratitude to you for your care and concern for our mother. Although your association with her as a caregiver was brief, you did not dismiss her and did not abandon her or us when we needed you. Your involvement in her care meant so much. You were truly the one provider that was upfront with her about her condition, and you lead the care of her with enthusiasm and spirit. We are and will forever be grateful to you for looking beyond her as a number and for taking care of her as a person. God bless you Dr. Waring." - Karen 

"I would like to thank you for everything you do for us and your patients. You are very much appreciated." - Trish

"Thank you for your initial diagnosis of stage-four lung cancer and your proactive response to it. Without your guidance and encouragement, I might not have survived. Your continuing care and concern about my well-being over the last two years is appreciated." - Sarah
