My younger brother was rushed to the ER with a massive infection from an unknown source. He was Septic and almost left us. My Mom flew to North Carolina to be with the family during this hard time and she says that the Wonderful Man, Dr. Laney, said "This young man is too young to die." And he saved my brothers life. What a Wonderful Man. Thank you sincerely, Dr. Bless you.
