Office staff is terrible. After waiting a month for my follow up, I missed a call from them the day before demanding confirmation of the appointment. When I returned the call a few minutes later, they had closed their phones and gone to lunch. I can't make calls during work hours, so I had to wait till first thing the next morning but it was too late, they had cancelled me! It's bad enough Dr. Axel doesn't like to look at his patients, but office staff that uncaring doesn't cut it for me.

Dr. Axel prescribed an inhaler that has improved my deeper breathing. Also, the inhaler or combination of inhalers allows me to cough productively...a huge relief. Dr. Axel openly invites me to call anytime if I have more serious lung problems.

Very frustrating appointment. Felt like I was talking to a robot. Doctor has no bedside manners at all. Had try to force him to listen to us and not just give diagnosis based on intake forms he had staff enter into database. He did not get enough history to understand my problem at all. Be prepared, he talks extremely loud and rudely dictates to a computer while sitting with you. We heard everyone else's diagnosis while waiting for our appointment. They will hear yours. Waited a long time for t
