This was my first visit to Temple Lung Center at Oaks. i was extremely pleased and will continue to see Dr Criner. Initially, I came in for a second opinion. i was so pleased with the service, that I intend to have the tests done thats Dr. Criner requested and I will be following up with him in early June 2019.

Very good experience with Dr. Criner. He and his staff are very thorough and know your case. They speak together and it's great to know they are providing a multi-disciplinary approach to my ongoing care. Can't say enough good things about the Temple Lung Center and both Dr. Criner and his medical staff. The front desk staff are always willing and able to help me with appointments etc. Very good department.
