Hi! I'm glad I saw this post! I live in Hoover Al, the Birmingham area. I have not found any Doc's in Birmingham that really know how to treat this. I had a Pulmonologist that sent me to an infectious disease Doc. We did the triple drug therapy for 2.5 years and infection was still active. At this point they were throwing up their hands..I got on Google and looked up Mayo. I was planning on Mayo in Jacksonville…then on this group, someone mentioned a specialist in Atlanta, a lot closer for me than Jacksonville.
This is my new Doc:
Dr. Colin Swenson, Emory at St.Joseph's
Pulmonary and Critical care medicine.
5673 Peachtree Dunwoody Rd.
Atlanta, GA 30342
He specializes in Bronchiectasis and MAC!!!!
You should be a lot closer to Emory. They are wonderful!! You will need a referral from a Doctor and he's pretty booked up but if you are really ill tell the person scheduling you and they will work to get you in sooner. They did that for me as I needed medication and had no Doc!!
He sees many "distance " patients. I've seen him twice so far and it's been a blessing.
