So glad I was referred to National Jewish to get to the bottom of my cement allergy issue. Now I know what I'm dealing with and can make decisions about how to move forward. Excellent provider - top notch communicator. Her explanations made complete sense. I emailed a concern and was quite surprised that she called me after hours that same day. This provider "blew my socks off" with her knowledge, communication, and responsiveness.
