Stop reading reviews - Dr. Posner is Hands down the best pulmonologist I've seen! After being misdiagnosed with asthma by another doc and getting pumped up with asthma meds that gave me a racing heart rate, I saw Dr. Posner. He took time to understand my history and was kind in his approach. Instead of prescribing another wrong med without much data, he sent me to take a thorough asthma challenge test at a nearby center. After that was negative, we discussed other potential causes and came up with an action plan that ended up helping me drastically. Over the following years, I followed up with him when I had a temporary increase in symptoms and he was always quick to remedy my situation with appropriate short-term medications when nothing else would help. If you've been to several doctors, been on/off lots of weird meds and still end up without a solid action plan, Dr. Posner can help get you on the right track just like he did for me.

I just moved back from Arizona after being diagnosed with Valley Fever. Dr. Posner has treated other patients with this diagnosis which is prevalent in the southwest. I can't express how impressed I was with his expertise, bedside manner and time that he was willing to spend with my husband and I.
