She wrote in my record that goes out to all Methodist hospitals that she ASSUMED I had lung cancer in my right lung! Could not believe that a doctor would assume something like this!

Dr Oolut is one of a kind. In today's medical world, it has been my experience that patients are treated as quickly as possible, get you in and out. This is not the case with Dr. Oolut. She is so compassionate, empathetic, and spends the necessary amount of time explaining and answering your questions. She's truly an sample for other provider's to follow.

Dr. Oolut is an outstanding physician, and my personal top choice for pulmonary medicine. Not only does she take excellent care of her patients, she also truly cares. She will go above and beyond to see to it that you are well cared for, both in and out of her office. I have never had a problem scheduling an appointment, getting a prescription refill, contacting the office staff, or feeling as though care was well managed. I highly recommend Dr. Oolut.

I LOVE Dr. Oolut and her staff. I've been seeing this doctor for about 2-3 years consistently ever since I moved. She is an excellent, attentive, and caring. Unlike previous reviews I am a consistent patient and have known Dr. Oolut for many years. I also have a chance to work with her and have seen how consistent she is with ALL of her patients. Something that is quite rare these days. Out of the many pulmonologists I see/work with she is the best!

I've been seeing Dr. Oolut for almost 2 years, and I'm beyond pleased with my experience. Her staff is friendly, and they make it a point to ask about my family and children each time I visit. As for Dr. Oolut, she takes her time with me even with all my questions. I never feel rushed with her. (I can't say that about all my docs who I need to see) As for my sleep results, she explained them in terms I could understand and discussed all treatment options in a clear and consice manner.

Please do not go to this physician if you love your life. Her staff, herself, all very incompetent, and they make mistakes/oversights repeatedly. Even simple things, she is incompetent to diagnose, and would read and interpret your X rays wrong. You, yourself can do much better job than her. Her staff and herself are nightmare. All this is based on my personal and very lengthy experience with her staff and her.
