Dr. Ojha seems nice at first but don't let that fool you. He was very demeaning toward me even accusing me of not using my oxygen. After seeing him today I am certain that he is not the doctor for me. I was only there because at an ED visit on Thursday the ED doctor recommended it due to the radiology report he reviewed. If you like condescending doctors then you will love him. If not then RUN fast to another pulmonary doctor! He hasn't shown the knowledge that I feel he should have either.
