Dr Rollins and the entire staff at Jewish is superior. He was the man who realized how sick i was and put me on the path to wellness after discovering i needed surgery and soon. I am forever indebted to him for his expertise, professionalism, intelligence, proactivity, and dedication to wellness. He is a stellar example of what a doctor should be.

I drive from city, KS to Denver to see Dr Rollins on a yearly basis because I do have confidence in him and his judgement. Dr Rollins is one of the best, if not the best, doctor I've known.

I would recommend Dr. Rollins to anyone who needed pulmonary care. He is so gifted, in both his profession and his caring attitude toward his patients. I hope NJH appreciates what a wonderful doctor they have.

National Jewish Health PatientOctober, 2016
Dr. Rollins is one of the most caring and knowledgable physicians I have ever seen. He will not give up until he finds a solution and is always willing to explain everything so the I can understand it. I would highly recommend him to anyone. I feel very fortunate to have him as my doctor.
