Warning. Do not use this Doctor. This is the worst experience that my wife and I have ever encountered with a Doctor. My wife and I were in the hospital as she was having trouble beathing. Dr Bekteshi was called in on Sunday and walked in the room and said "What is the problem here" after we explained he said "there is nothing wrong with your lungs. It's pain and you just have to deal with it" This is after a 1 minute initial exam. He should find a job that he likes better without people.

He knew what was wrong with me instantly. I had been misdiagnosed many times by regular Dr.'s. I didn't want to except his diagnoses so he was very patient with me until I could handler it.

Dr Bekteshi is good but since they moved to the new office...I definately would NOT recommend them! VERY hard to make an appointment or even talk to a person! I have been calling for 7 days and all I get is leave a message. OR....during business hours it states please call back when the phone lines are open at 1:30 pm. Repeatingly getting that message even at 3:00 pm. Answering service could not help. Office staff not helpful! Next step, new pulmonary Doctor!
