“This was my first visit at an ENT specialist today, trying to help me with my breathing problems. Dr. Ghufoor was very attentive and thorough, and he asked plenty of questions and answered all of my own. I will have to come for a follow up, as it was not clear what the reason for my breathing issues is.“
