Wow. A pulmonary doctor who listens, researches for unusual diagnoses and doesn't drop the ball. In the hospital, goes to the bedside every day, actually listens to and examines the patient. Didn't know how rare that is! And figured out additional diagnoses and solutions other docs had missed....more

Always in a hurry. Paid the full amount with sleep apnea study but no result was given. Better look for other pulmo specialist.
