*Dr. Gottschall is great, I have complete confidence in her.

National Jewish Health PatientSeptember, 2016
During the past 3 months I had a mild heart attack and was treated at another facility. I had questions about how the treatment and medications might impact the sarcoidosis and placed a call to a nurse at NJH. Dr. Gottschall called me after hours and spent 30 minutes discussing my case. I thought that her concern, care, and time was truly noteworthy.
