Dr Jyothula was my husband’s doctor for a short time before he died. Dr Jyothula was kind, compassionate, honest and frank. He and his staff gave my husband the best care he had had throughout his illness. Dr Jyothula inspired hope while preparing us for what might come next. We had complete trust and confidence in him, and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of pulmonary care.
