I am able to not only walk to my garage again but also drive my car

Richard Spyker Sr., Patient

My Chronic Lung disease progressed to the point where I could no longer walk from the back of my house to the garage without stopping to catch my breath.

As a result Dr. Potempa referred me to Pulmonary Rehab program.

After being in Pulmonary rehab program for 3 months I am able to not only walk to my garage again but also drive my car.

Also, my 6 minute walk test improved by 66%.

Now after having graduated the Pulmonary rehab program and being in Bronson’s maintenance program for 7 months, my Pulmonologist Dr. Potempa told me I can play golf anytime the weather permits it.  I firmly believe that is a direct result of the  Pulmonary rehab program.

I would like to give a special thanks to Douglas Maurer who has helped me since day 1 in my progress with rehab.  Also want to thank Lon Letcher for his assistance since he joined BBC Pulmonary Rehab.

I plan to continue my maintenance Pulmonary Rehab for as long as I am able.
