    Dr. Folk isolated and treated me for a seldom-seen bacterial lung infection and, in consultation with Dr. Brandon Bowers, was able to treat me successfully with an antibiotic, which was made more difficult because I am allergic to many antibiotics. Together they included me in their course of treatment, and I was able to leave the hospital after 4-1/2 months. I cannot say enough good things about either of them.
