thank you for taking such good care of me! My lungs are so much stronger. when you first saw me I was using my rescue nebulizers treatments every 4 to six hours. now I don't have to use the rescue. I use a maintenance to keep my lungs strong once a day or every other day. twice a day when the triggers are high. you are my answer to prayer.

Dr. Velazco, during both appointments I have had with him, has explained every question and gone into great detail in describing my condition and next steps. He used available CT scans and drawings to help in understanding my condition and gave assurances to me during my initial consult that I was on the correct regimen of medication to improve my overall heart function. He was direct in his assessments but very considerate; I appreciate that approach.
