I have been his patient since 2015. He has always shown concern, listened & answered my questions. He has worked hard to keep me out of the hospital & I would recommend him to anyone who suffers with COPD.

My diagnosis is that I have asthma and before going to Doctor Fakhruddin A. Rakla, other doctors could not tell me what was wrong. Luckily, Doctor Fakhruddin A.Rakla ran some tests and found out that I have asthma. I would recommend Dr. Raklin because he is trustworthy.

I recently had a serious case of pneumonia that required hospitalization for almost two weeks. Dr. Rakla was the pulmonologist attending me. I was very impressed with the way he and the other doctors worked together to develop my treatment plan and how he and the team carried out this plan. He was very involved and concerned throughout the treatment. I really appreciate the attention and the high quality care I received during this time. I would strongly recommend him to anyone having issues of this type.

Dr, Rakla has been my pulmonary doctor for over 12 years. After being misdiagnosed with a sinus infection by 2 other doctors, Dr. Rakla dug deeper and scoped my chest. I had A-typical TB. He put me on antibiotics immediately and sent me to specialists in Tyler TX. Even though I ended up losing the upper lobes in both lungs, I wouldn't even be here today if he hadn't found out what was wrong. He is attentive and friendly. I would recommend him to anyone.

I have been going to Dr. Rakla for several years and would recommend his office and have to several. He listens and is always willing to help you understand what is going on and what the next steps should be regarding your treatment. The office staff is always willing to help with any issues. Melissa went the extra steps and stayed on top of things to help resolve an issue with the DME company for my portable oxygen concentrator. I can not praise her enough.

Admitted with a diagnosis of pneumonia, Dr Rakla realized that was probably not the true problem. Turned out to be congestive heart failure. He saw me regularly, explained everything and spent as much time as needed. I surely recommend him highly!
