    This MD is one of 3 trying to determine the reason for acute breathing problems related to my chronic right nasal sinus condition continuing to crust, itch and affect my breathing, especially when laying down. It is not understood why none of the MDs suggested mold to be a possible factor.
    *Dr. Gugenheim was very thoughtful & thorough. He read thru the family Hx I brought him regarding my hearing & vertigo situation & my family's Hx (important to my case). 7. I am in the medical field & he respected my knowledge.
    C.P. seemed to be rushed.
    Still seeing him in Napa.
