I'm a patient of Dr. Jay Heidecker at B'ham Pulmonary Group. He became my Pulmonary specialist after I was admitted to St. Vincent's Hospital after having a Pulmonary Embolism in the ER. I was in the hospital for eight days and was very sick. I now have stage 2 COPD and my life has forever changed. Dr. Heidecker has been honest about my disease and treatment plan. There is no cure, however, he is willing to try new medicines and cares about me and my quality of life. DEBORAH ANDERSON
