Dr Beuther does an excellent job giving a patient his undivided attention. He talks through several scenarios for treatment and explains all the "whys" and "hows." I always feel confident in the care I am receiving from National Jewish Health and Dr Beuther.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
Dr. Beuther is the most "caring" and detailed doctor of ANY of my physicians!! I have GREAT confidence in him! He always spends time with me and does not just sit there entering info into a computer (like MOST docs seem to do!)

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
I'm changing doctors so it was our first visit. The visit went well. He seems quite caring and competent.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
Dr Beuther gets into the room right away and he explains what he thinks we need to do for my asthma, we discuss what has been done and how it is working, he speaks with my other doctors at National Jewish to discuss what we should do about my health and he explains everything so that I can understand what he wants to do and how it will effect me. I really like him as my doctor.
