He is the BEST pulmonary doctor. I was coughing for a long time and I was lucky to see Dr. N. Schachter. After 10 day treatment I am cough free and I feel very well. He is a very knowledgeable doctor, explaining everything and answering all your questions. I highly recommend him and I call him the MIRACLE doctor. Emilia S.
