My visit with Dr. Pilewski was on a referral from my pulmonologist concerning my complications from my chronic lung disease, bronchiectasis. Dr. Pilewski was the most thorough medical professional that I have ever had an appointment with. He asked a lot of questions to get my medical history to provide the best possible treatment and answered any questions that I presented to him. Based on this one visit I am very pleased. He ordered tests and obtained possible pertinent medical records from my past illnesses.

Always a very good experience.
I have never seen Dr. Pelewski until yesterday and I have never been more happy with a first visit with a doctor. All of the doctors are amazing at CF Clinic but I was blown away by Dr. Pelewski.
