Dr. Daniels is a very caring, attentive specialist whom I was referred to once my COPD became worse. I have been extremely pleased with him as a physician and with the care and recommendations he provides. He listens very closely to patient input. I have Medicare & a Part D Drug Plan, and he is very supportive in working with me to find the drugs that are both beneficial to me but also work with my current insurance plans.

Our first visit found a very polite and respectful Doctor with a big smile! The most important quality? He really listens and my 92 year old husband had some things to say! Dr. Daniel patiently answered questions, gave clear instructions and information. He was very upbeat and when we mentioned actions we took, he agreed with most of them and often suggested even more we could do to be comfortable. I would absolutely recommend him.
