National Jewish Health Patient– March, 2019 Dr. Huitt is extremely knowledgeable and eexperienced in her area; however her demeanor can be brusque and condescending at times.

National Jewish Health Patient– December, 2018 She was one of the highlights of the visit. I am a person who desires to understand as much as I can about my responsibility as a patient. Dr. Huitt took the time to meaningfully educate me on what I could do while showing consideration for my existing knowledge and opinions. I would 100% recommend her for a family or friend. A top notch approach by a modern provider, that should serve as benchmark for how to properly conduct medicine. National Jewish Health Patient– November, 2018 9. Excellent! National Jewish Health Patient– November, 2018 I travel from [my home state] to CO every year (sometimes twice) because I have never had a dr or medical facility that I have such confidence in as NJH. Dr Huitt knows I am very sensitive to the medications and she listens to my concerns regarding pros and cons of starting medications. She works with me, unlike many dr I have had in the past who seem to force you to take the medications and leave you to deal with the side effects on your own. National Jewish Health Patient– November, 2018 She always finds things other MD's miss and develops plans to address each finding. National Jewish Health Patient– November, 2018 I love Dr Huitt.

National Jewish Health Patient– January, 2018 Dr. Huitt is an excellent professional. I have every confidence in her care, and believe she prescribes a program for me to my other health professionals for my best health benefit. National Jewish Health Patient– January, 2018 I would like to have Dr. Huitt explain the why behind the recommendations so I can make the best decisions about compliance when I can't do things exactly as requested. Understanding [CONDITION] and [CONDITION] is difficult and a long journey if you have never heard or read about them before being diagnosed. Some things have to be repeated several times from appt to appt in order for them to be thoroughly understood. We are taught these days not to depend on provider blindly but to be on charge of our own treatment. Sometimes it is hard to blindly follow instructions without thoroughly understanding why.

National Jewish Health Patient– April, 2017 Dr. Hewitt is in a league of her own. It's obvious she cares deeply for her patient's well being. That's why she asks about the family dynamics that impact the patient. (My husband has [Condition].) In the brief time Dr. Hewitt has known me, she's diagnosed conditions that no other MD has identified. Now that I have a proper diagnosis for my severe yet silent [Condition], I can make the necessary lifestyle changes to significantly improve my quality of life.

They are "the cream of the crop!" National Jewish Health Patient– March, 2016 NJH & *Dr. Huitt exceeded my expectations. Caring, knowledgeable, empathetic - it was a privilege to be *Dr. Huitt's patient. National Jewish Health Patient– January, 2016 Normally, *Dr. Huitt is very interactive and compassionate.
