Patient Comments (1)
San Antonio, TX |
I would not recommend, my son was seen by her, and had a persistant cough for months, I told her this,all she said was he had allergiess and prescribed him allergy meducation, he still continues with cough, took him back and asked for a chest xray just to be safe, but it was clear, and she continued to say it was allergies...long story short, he got intubated and stayed in ICU for a month, due to sleep apnea, undiagnosed... he was coughing because his CO2 was high, had to learn to walk again??
