Carrie James

Pulmonology Care

Carrie JamesCarrie James had a double lung transplant in 2008 in Florida. A resident of Natchitoches, she always wanted a local pulmonologist, so when Dr. Warren Botnick moved to Natchitoches in 2017, she called and made an appointment.

“As the years passed following my transplant for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, it was getting harder and harder for my husband and me to travel to Florida for care, especially for more routine lung checkups. So, when we met Dr. Botnick, we found him to be not only incredibly sensitive to our situation but also extremely knowledgeable about transplants,” Mrs. James explained. “I still take anti-rejection drugs, and Dr. Botnick gave me his cell number in the event I ever have an emergency. He is always right there when I need him, and I’ve had to call him on several occasions which were life-threatening.”

“Once, I could not take my pill form of the anti-rejection drug due to an emergency colon surgery caused by diverticulitis, so he contacted my doctors in Florida to get a liquid form that I could take,” she explained. “Another time, I fell and hurt my back right before a scheduled trip to Florida. It hurt to walk, but he helped me get the care I needed, so I could make the necessary trip.”

“Whatever comes up or happens, he is right there. I cannot explain how much he has done to keep me going. Dr. Botnick is absolutely the most outstanding doctor I have ever known. I appreciate him beyond anything I could ever express. I am so glad he is in Natchitoches – not just for me but for everyone with lung issues.”
