Dr. Bravo did not diagnosis my mothers lung cancer. He did not conduct a CTscan that would have easily identified the masses even after her quickly declining health and increase breathing issues. I would not recommend him as a doctor. His comment to me after my mother diagnosis in the ER, Well in hind site, now I see the masses. Thank you doctor.
