Because I am convinced that my doctor, Dr Buddinger is a MEDICAL SUPER HERO! He is so busy and I know his time is precious. I know he realizes that I\m not a rich or influential patient. And I know that as person of color I see my family

Dr. Budinger was able to figure out my lung problems in 2006, when local doctors could not. His wholistic approach has enabled me to find the best doctors and treatment for all issues, primarily lungs.
