Finding the right doctor can drastically improve how supported and educated you feel, and how well your NTM infection is managed. If you or a loved one has NTM lung disease, you may already know how crucial finding the right doctor is. Or perhaps you are uncertain which kinds of medical professionals can best help you.

Make sure you tell them about all symptoms as well as any new symptoms and side effects of treatments.
