Numerous attempts to diagnosis a sever cough by physicians and specialist resulted in their mutual COPD finding. Several atomized inhaler and rescue inhalers were percribed, unfortunately without any symptom relief. Dr. Walke's single visit correctly identified my problem, ( YEY,NOT as COPD). He prescribed a very simple,once per day, nasal inhaler to replace all 8 of my daily previous nebuluzer and rescue inhaling procedures thereby my 1st restful night in months. I trust this talented physican
