I had difficulty recovering from pneumonia for several months. I sought care from my primary care Dr. He ordered a respiratory test and diagnosed asthma. Two days later I got a call from Dr Atwal who ordered chest x-ray and compared it with a previous film and she diagnosed Congestive heart failure, which was confirmed by a Cardio Dr. Had she not done this my outcome could have been dire. She is my Hero.
