*Dr. Cott is a real hands-on doctor. A good diagnostician.

National Jewish Health PatientMarch, 2018
My only negative comment is that sometimes I feel my ability to complete daily living tasks is not taken as seriously as I personally perceive it. With [TREATMENT], my endurance and strength have improved.

National Jewish Health PatientMarch, 2018
Dr Kott was excellent. He had taken the time to look at my record. He reviewed the information I brought in during the appointment. He was able to come up with an explanation with regard to my illness and a solution in a quick and efficient manner. He was the best doctor I have seen so far while at Jewish National.

National Jewish Health PatientFebruary, 2018
Dr Cott is professional; never appears rushed; is understanding; and sympathetic. It is unusual to see these characteristics today in a physician. He's one of the best that I've seen.

Was instructed on the use of a [DEVICE] after my visit with the Dr. Even though it was after hours on a Friday, she was patient, not rushed, during the demonstration.

Dr Cott is a wonderful Doctor and has kept me alive since [PHI] and I am very happy to be alive

National Jewish Health PatientOctober, 2017
Dr. Cott is one of the finest physicians I've have ever met and I feel privileged to be his patient. I'd rank Dr. Cott in the top 1% of U.S. physicians.

National Jewish Health PatientOctober, 2017
Could not say enough good things about the doctors we have seen. AMAZING!!!

National Jewish Health PatientOctober, 2017
Dr. Cott always knows remembers my complicated history, notable because it's a long history - I've been coming to NJH for [number] years.

National Jewish Health PatientOctober, 2017
