It was nice to spend to much time (1 hour x2) w/*Dr. Cott.

National Jewish Health PatientOctober, 2018
He is the best, most knowledgeable, most responsive to my needs and concerns of any medical person I see

National Jewish Health PatientOctober, 2018
Dr. Cott is the best! I would recommend him highly without hesitation or reservation.

National Jewish Health PatientOctober, 2018
Always very good explanations of my current conditions and a plan for care until my next visit. Always takes as much time as needed to for my exam. My written report of my current condition and plan going forward is outstanding. I wish all my doctors were as good as Dr. Cott.

National Jewish Health PatientSeptember, 2018
I think this is how medicine used to be, before doctors were forced to see more patients in less time. Dr Cott spent all the time necessary to understand my past history and evaluate my current status and make recommendations on thorough history and exam

National Jewish Health PatientAugust, 2018
Excellent excellent.

National Jewish Health PatientAugust, 2018
I was extremely pleased and impressed with Dr. Cott's knowledge and professionalism. He was very pleasant, focused, efficient, a good listener and generous with his time in answering my wife's and my questions. To the point, I feel very comfortable and confident that I am in good hands being under his care.

National Jewish Health PatientJuly, 2018
I am very confident about his ability to help me feel better every time I see him. He makes me (as the patient) feel comfortable. He is the best doctor of all the doctors I have ever seen in my life.
