  • Michael Czarnecki is an American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) certified doctor of medicine with specialty training in pulmonary and critical care from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX. Dr. Czarnecki entered medicine after a 7-year career as a decorated officer in the U.S. Air Force (USAF).

    In the USAF, Dr. Mike served as an explosive-munitions engineer which culminated as Program Director for International Foreign Military Sales. In addition, upon graduating from the USAF Academy in Colorado Springs, Mike embarked on a path of volunteering as a fire fighter and paramedic in the emergency services community. This sparked his drive to pursue medicine as a career, where he is now accomplished in the technical aspects of pulmonary interventional procedures such as intubation, mechanical ventilation and navigational bronchoscopy.

    Research & Techniques
    As a pulmonary physician, Dr. Czarnecki's interests include research into minimally invasive diagnosis and staging of lung cancer, pleural based lung disease pathogenesis, COPD exacerbation control and airway stenting indications and complications control.

    Mike is accomplished in all aspects of treating complex pulmonary diseases and caring for the critically-ill, with a focus on the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancers.

    Dr. Czarnecki is currently accepting new patients.
