care provider did not give recommended tests on day I went in. I guess there was some miscommunication on my part

My mother has been under Dr. Lubetkin's care for almost 4 years now. He is an excellent doctor who really cares about his patients. He takes time and listens and he explains everything in a way that you will understand.
