I have Bronchiectasis which caused excessive phlegm in my lungs and incessant coughing. Dr Fortenko patiently and expertly helped me deal with it. She is a highly professional and personable doctor who is not only concerned about my lungs but my overall health. She is one of the best doctors I have ever had. And at my age, I’ve had a lot!
