NJI is renown for its respiratory expertise which is why I came to NJI.. since my visits, procedures and diagnosis I come back to NJI because of Dr Manka and of who and what NJI is and does.. Dr Manka has made it clear that I can be treated in [PHI ](home) instead of returning every 2 months to NJI... As I said, I choose to come back because of Dr Manka and NJi
