Dr. Nachtwey has been my pulmonologist for about 6yrs now, and he has done everything he could to assist me with my lung issues. I'm so grateful that I met him. He's been one of the MOST PATIENT doctors I've ever had. He talks respectfully to you, asks for your input, he listens, he's gentle, and he's just overall a kind and great guy. His office staff is SUPER NICE as well; I don't know everyone but Jackie and Sara have been so good to me. Alex is so sweet and friendly also. Thanks to you all!

After I took a sleep test - I waited 50 minutes before he arrived to review it. He walked in barehanded and had to use my pages of results to discuss something he apparently had not previously reviewed, at least recently. The immediate issue he focused on was that I should have a CPAP machine, I snore. I asked them to order the machine on Jan 6 - it is Mar 3 and I still have not received the machine and I have had to make numerous phone calls between his office and the machine provider.
