    I made the appointment with the provided based on a recommendation from a current patient of his. It was meant to be a consultation for a second opinion but I had decided to switch to him for pulmonary care. He told me that he would review my records in detail after I left. He then called me a few days later to provide me with further information. I just wish that Temple would establish a satellite office in N.J. I myself had considered coming there in the past, but had decided the trip would be too long and too cumbersome.
