I have a referral, now I need to find a Pulmonary Dr. in Orlando, Florida.
I am looking for someone who is good, (of course). Someone who really seems to care.
Low end pricing is important as I do not have insurance and am paying Out-Of-Pocket.
If anyone in Orlando, Florida can help with suggestions of who they are seeing or of someone they know who is seeing a Pulmonary Dr., your input would be greatly appreciated.
Thanking you in advance.....
