I too am going through something strange with coughing. Everybody says this sounds like a pneumonia of some sort. I am told there is a viral and bacterial strain. They dont want me in a hospital... that is too costly. I read somewhere about some bills being passed for more federal funding where the Medical Facilities are rewarded federal monies for keeping the cost down. My real problem "is" the Affordable care Act. "They are suppose to treat you but they don't have to take care of you." quoted by a couple of nurses. If you have good insurance...definitely get a new doctor.
There are Good Doctors. Its sad there are so many bad ones.
