I could not say enough good things about Dr. Latifi. I have never had a doctor take so much time to make sure that I understood what asthma is, what causes it and how best to treat it for me personally. I first noticed breathing problems when I was 13 years old and it was diagnosed as asthma. I am now 70 and Dr. Latifi literally went through every incident I could remember through all of those years to better understand just what we were dealing with. I feel sure that I am in the best possible hands.
