VERY CARING AND KNOWLEDGEABLE

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
I love the care I have received at National Jewish which is why I drive to see your providers.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
Good

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
Very interesting and informative, very confident with the provider and the staff

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
Dr. Freeman is a very nice and friendly person. He seems quite knowledgable i.e. current on latest research, but it feels like he treats based on what can be measured. In my case this is hypertension and high cholesterol even though the purpose for my seeking cardiology care is persistent low grade tachycardia. One treatment approach prescribed was daily exercise to the point of not carrying on a conversation for 30 minutes.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
This care provider is a very competent individual. He may have too many irons in the fire and can get distracted. When I have a serious problem, he pays much closer attention and gets information and seeks effective solutions quickly.

National Jewish Health PatientMarch, 2016
He is very thorough and understanding good experience.

National Jewish Health PatientFebruary, 2016
The provider was professional, knowledgeable and quite clear in responding to my questions and bringing new information to my attention. I found the care provided quite good and attentive to my health issues.

National Jewish Health PatientJanuary, 2016
Seems to minimize my concerns.
