Dr. Gurka was absolutely awesome! He spent so much time with me even after finding that I did not have a pulmonary issue. My case being a complicated one he went more than the extra mile to send me in a direction that I needed to go. I can't thank him enough for his time,effort and patience. This dr deserves a rating higher than 5 stars!!!!
