He was very concerned about my breathing, wanted to make sure he gave me a breathing treatment and a steroid shot before I left the office. He also wanted to make sure he provided me with the right medicines that would not affect the other prescriptions that I am currently on. He was very informative with me. He explained things well. He was great!!

I did not believe his diagnosis at first, but I do now. His diagnosis of cellulitis was accurate, but it would be helpful to him to know that I use a CPAP machine and I believe the mask straps may have contributed. This is a question he can ask in the future.
