Dr. Carlin was very thorough about my condition and what he was looking for from the bronchoscopy procedure. He was honest about his concern and my high risk because my COPD. He was focused on me and my wife (who was present) and made sure we were fully aware of what I was about to undergo.

Dr. Carlin was very willing to listen to my concerns and prior asthma history, including treatments which had been unsuccessful for me. He explained the different options available to me, and we agreed on continuing my current regimen, with a 6-month follow-up; but that if I had any increase in asthma problems before then, to call him immediately for an appointment.

Whenever I read about people's impersonal, hurried doctor's appointments these days, I immediately think that has not been my experience with BS&W specialty physicians. The ideal example of personal, unhurried care is Dr. Joseph Patrick Carlin. This past summer, his commitment to finding the reason for my shortness of breath was all-inclusive. At this six-months' check-in, my pulmonary exam showed no pulmonary Issues. Then, Dr. Carlin carefully explained the steps of continued COVID protection and answered all my questions about airline travel. Dr. Carlin's devotion to my total health and well-being has been 100% ideal.
