Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Yes, you should definitely consult another doctor.
Pneumonia is lung infection and it should be treated promptly and correctly.
And chest x ray is must for the diagnosis of pneumonia.
So better to consult another doctor and get done chest x ray to rule out pneumonia.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
