On Dec. 18, 2014 at 4AM, I awoke coughing up blood.

On Dec. 18, 2014 at 4AM, I awoke coughing up blood. My wife immediately said that we were going to Providence St. Joseph Emergency Room in Burbank, CA. We live in Hollywood. But before we left for the Emergency Room, I thought it best if I called Dr. Kagan to tell him our plan. I called his number expecting to reach his message center, but I was surprised to hear Dr. Kagan's voice at the other end. It is a shade before 5AM and he concurred in our plan and that he would see us there soon. He was very reassuring and it helped both my wife and I to keep calm on the drive into Burbank. Dr. Kagan has been my primary doctor for over 25 years and he has always been the anchor in all of my medical needs. He has always been reachable and positive to me. Thanks, Dr. Kagan, you are special.
