Great experience, but the proof will be in the results, once I begin the recommended treatment

National Jewish Health PatientNovember, 2021
Dr Buether is always so compassionate and listens to what you have to say.

National Jewish Health PatientNovember, 2021
This doctor is the best doctor I have ever had. He is caring, compassionate, smart and the real deal. He is also humble and honest. If you can offer this doctor a raise he deserves it. You cannot afford to lose him nor to not listen. He is great!

National Jewish Health PatientNovember, 2021
Doc Beuther is the best.

National Jewish Health PatientNovember, 2021
Dr. Beuther reviewed my tests and records and gave me a plan to find out what my problem is. He outlined a course of tests to determine the cause and provide a treatment. He was the first encouraging word I've heard in over a year. I think this could be a life changing event for me. He advised that my past care providers were very good, but he and NJH are able to provide "the next level of care". I can't express how much this visit encouraged me. He was friendly, professional and clear. Thank you Dr. Beuther and NJH.
