After being ill for over a year, I sought out a new pulmonologist. Dr. Ellen Vaughey and her staff have been fabulous! She quickly diagosed me, recommended treatment options, and made sure her staff stayed on top of the insurance side of the issue. She has been understanding, compassionate, and knowledgeable. She has worked with my ENT to get my illness under control and it has led to positive results. She is friendly, pleasant, and kind. I am so happy to have found her!
