Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the best score. Learn more about our patient satisfaction survey.

Unfortunately, *Dr. Gottscahll is retiring.

National Jewish Health PatientJanuary, 2018
I could not have had a better doctor.

National Jewish Health PatientJanuary, 2018
B.B. Gottschall is, and has been, an incredible doctor, consultant, and coordinator for me. I am thus saddened by her "retirement" from clinic. However, I know she'll be involved in research that will be of great help to many patients, and I'm comforted to know that I can still reach her through National Jewish.

National Jewish Health PatientJanuary, 2018
As a retired military veteran, I have had experience with many physicians at many facilities both here in the US and overseas. I consider Dr. Gottschall to be the finest physician I have met. Every aspect of her care as noted above is exceptional. I consider her physician's notes and care plans to be the most comprehensive, lucid, and understandable. Top notch in every way!

National Jewish Health PatientDecember, 2017
I feel that National Jewish Health is the best pulmonary facility available. Your facility was recommended to me by my pulmonologist in [City]. I travel to Denver from [City]

National Jewish Health PatientNovember, 2017
The primary concern voiced during this visit was in regard to responding to the questions from workman's comp not in addressing my health issues. I was not there to satisfy those people but because I was following my pulmonologist's recommendations to seek the best in an effort to improve my quality of life. I did not receive such.

National Jewish Health PatientAugust, 2017
Fantastic service

National Jewish Health PatientAugust, 2017
Dr. Gottschall is the finest physician I have met. She listens carefully, includes me in her reasoning about my health conditions, and is astute in her observations. Her medical reports are accurate, detailed, comprehensive, and understandable; I recommend that they be used as a model for other physicians. While the format and precise language could be relatively easily incorporated by other physicians, the insightful observations, careful analysis, and critical thinking that underlies her reports would require considerable effort on the part of other physicians I have observed. Dr. Gottschall is truly top-notch; the best.

National Jewish Health PatientJuly, 2017
Dr. Gottshall is the most knowledgeable and caring Physician that I have had in the past [number] years. It is indeed a privilege to have her as my pulmonologist. The concern that she has for her patients is extraordinary as she will solve any health issues when they arise.

National Jewish Health PatientJuly, 2017
As I mentioned before, I was very impressed by how concerned and interested Dr. Gottschall appeared to be with my case.
