I was seeing a different lung doctor, but after I changed to Doctor Shantha I am getting much better care. He takes the time to explain things to you and makes sure you understand. If you need a lung doctor then I would highly recommend Doctor Shantha for you. He is very thorough and really cares about his patients. I rated him 5 stars across the board. He has earned them in my opinion.
