Patient Reviews
Oct 01, 2020
I am a new patient with asthma and allergies. Dr. MeKonnen helped me to develop a health plan to manage my asthma and ensured that I had enough refills to manage that plan. In the meanwhile, I had heaviness and mucus in my chest. I visited four different doctors, prior to Dr. MeKonnen, who all proclaimed that my chest was clear. My former pulmonologist even brushed me off by saying that the lungs don't hurt, so it was not his area of expertise. Dr. MeKonnen asked me key questions and prescribed a Z pack. My chest immediately open up and the mucus began to come up. I feel so much better! He was the only MD who ventured further than a "clear chest."
