I live in NC and see Dr Mary Leigh Ann Daniels at UNC and she is an expert in Bronchiectasis and MAC. I would highly recommend her to anyone. I have also been to National Jewish twice and have seen both Dr Huitt and Dr Griffith. Save yourself the trip to Denver you won't be disappointed.

Hello Pop55!
I go to UNC as well. My local pulmonologist had first referred me to Dr. Daniels but I couldn’t get an appointment with her for six months or more when initially diagnosed. I am now seeing one of the colleagues at the same location, Dr. Patel. However, I think his expertise is Bronchiectasis.
I have an appointment in February to see if I have obtained clearance after six months of meds. I’m going to wait till after that appointment to make a decision about a doctor change, I guess. If I’ve made clearance and I just continue on the medication and it worked, then it won’t matter. However, if I don’t clear it, then I would like someone that is more specialized in the field of MAC lung disease.
Thank you so much for replying to my post and the advice!
Happy New Year! Dee

I am seeing another Dr at UNC-CH but i noticed with my very 1st appointment over a year ago , that Dr. Daniels name was on all the orders for tests and studies during that initial visit.
I am concerned mostly because the doctor I see has to spend so much of her time in the pediatric clinic. She is not full time in the adult pulmo clinic.
