The wait times to see the dr. after vitals are taken are very lengthy.

Dr. Dworski has an incredible rapport with his patients. He has a great "bedside" manner, speaks in understandable terms, is never rushed (although I know he's very efficient) and is always prompt in answering any questions through My Health @ Vanderbilt. Hands down he is among the best physicians I have encountered ever. I believe he is a great influence on the residents who work with him.
Patient | April 19, 2017

I would recommend Dr. Dworski to anyone with lung problems. He is always up-to-date on the latest research on medications, is an excellent listener, and a wonderful doctor.

I have seen many Vanderbilt doctors in many different fields, but almost none have shown the level of care, attentiveness, and expertise as Dr. Dworski. I have a rare problem which most doctors will barely discuss with me; they just say there's no cure and prescribe a new kind of pain medication. However, Dr. Dworski pours his attention into each conversation, offering insightful and helpful advice. He does research into the problems and comes up with a variety of solutions. Initially, he gave me a lifeline when the casual disregard of other doctors had driven me to the point of desperation. Moreover, many of his suggestions worked -- but even if they hadn't, his willingness to listen to me and respond as if things weren't hopeless was a lifeline to me. Also, when he gives feedback and recommendations, he explains his reasons fully, in ways that are easy to understand. He doesn't just tell me what I want to hear, either, but he shows care and compassion in delivering unwelcome news. He includes me in medical decisions and has approved testing that I wished to pursue, listening to my reasoning and giving good points and counterpoints. I trust him. Although he is a specialist, I tell my friends (in partial seriousness) that I consider him to be my primary care doctor, because he is the one who communicates with me and looks for answers.
