About Me

Somebody being told that they may have a lung cancer is a pretty big deal. Oftentimes they're on edge, they might not be hearing everything we’re telling them. We try to put them at ease, make sure that they know that they’re in good hands, that we have their best interest at heart.

I would highly recommend Dr. M. Liptay to my friends. It was a very hard decision for me to make to have the lung surgery, but he as well as his PA put me at ease. On the day of surgery he let me know he was there by acknowledging me.
