"Dr. Pietila was very understanding when I took my dad to see him regarding his pulmonary fibrosis. He showed his compassion when he suggested the idea of my dad entering hospice. He is very capable and listened to me and my dad during our visits. I would recommend him for anyone with lung issues. Also, people need to heed his warnings regarding COVID-19. He is a trusted doctor."
