The doctor did not know my name coming into the room and thought she was seeing a different patient. I don't feel like my concerns were taken seriously. I don't feel that the assessment was appropriate since I was suffering from shortness of breath from ingesting a peanut in my lung. Dr. Rivera called me the following day after consulting with her colleagues to say that we should do a bronchoscopy sooner than she told me which would have been a month out. Needless to say this was very confusing and I elected to change doctors at that time. Since then, I have been seen by another Pulmonary physician and have had a bronchoscopy to remove the peanut removed from my lung.
