Patient Comments (1)
in Lewistown, PA |
I was having problems with reoccurring lung infections. Dr Acosta decided after 1 visit and NO tests that this was not a problem and I was being a hypochondriac. Thank Goodness for a second opinion by another doctor out of the area and all the tests he put me through, we discovered I had a very mild case of Lupus that is increasing as I age and one of the areas it likes to attack is my lungs. I would never recommend Dr. Acosta to shovel manure.
