    I felt results of pulmonary function test and 6-minute walk were not well explained or was not compared to previous tests showing any improvements or other differences.

    Since august of last year, I have been to many specialists that test and send me on my way stating I cannot find anything wrong. The pulmonologist I was sent to initially literally stayed I do not know how to treat you, Dr camac very knowledgeable and knew exactly where we are and what path we need to go on, as well as another possible diagnosis which she is testing for. The explanation of the two lung diseases I have, very understandable. Actually I felt like a patient and not just a number
