This letter is in defense of Dr. Darshan Shah and Mike McSween and
Advanced Care Emergi Center.

A week before I was to go on a 12-day vacation to Alaska, I developed
a severe case of asthma. I knew I could not go on this trip without
medical intervention. I decided to go to Advanced Care Emergi Center
and Mike was on duty at that time.

After X-rays and two treatments on a breathing machine he then ordered
the medications I needed to clear up my breathing problems, which I
obtained at Eckerd Drug.

I had made an appointment with a new doctor a month ago and was to see
him four days later. The new doctor stated that Mike had given me the
right therapy and my lungs were clear. Had I not been able to walk
into Advanced Care Emergi Center on that day I would not have been
able to enjoy my once-in-a-lifetime vacation in Alaska. I have found
Dr. Shah and Mike McSween to be caring and compassionate to all who
come to them in pain or illness.
