    I have had Dr Velho as my primary pulmonologist but I feel I first met her as registered nurse sent to help staff learn how to do her most common invasive surgery which I’d bronchoscope and including those included those with biopsy when hospital transferred to another area of hospital then where I was currently worked. Intuitively trusted her immediately based on this intuition and think within couple years I became her private patient after referral from another physician who had received results of pulmonary function test that she had actually read. I remain 100% a fan based on her treatment of my disease
