The best pulmonologist for this condition
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I do neb treatments every evening and morning with albuterol, sodium chloride 7%, and Budesonide 1mg also Spiriva and Singulair daily but I was just on 60mg last month for breathing difficulty that is why my family would like another opinion by a specialist to see if there is anything else I can do.
