I have a lung condition that has had several interpretations by different pulmonologists over the years...some who had me on a fairly negative path of medicines. Dr. Belkin looked at the records, looked at the MRIs, and with compassion and understanding,got me off the hamster wheel of dubious advice and drugs. He freed me. Cannot recommend him highly enough.
