What People Say About Dr. Robert Thum, MD
Reply
I am placing this review to help new patients in their selection. In my experience -- Dr. Thum is a very good pulmonologist. He is of course accurate in diagnosis and medication. In addition he has special tips for management of the disease which may look simple but are very helpful. He has a quiet demeanor - but don't worry -- he is paying full attention. Office staff is very helpful and pleasant.
