Very satisfied in all respects with this appointment.

May 17, 2018

Dr Kristo was very helpful. I have many health issues going on right now and he was able to coordinate some of the issues to help. I see many specialists but never get the coordination in the fifteen minutes that I am scheduled for with my PCP. Dr Kristo took his time and really helped me with questions that I had relevant to many issues I have been experiencing. I would recommend him to anyone who is having pulmonary problems. thank you
