National Jewish Health Patient– June, 2019 Doc was pretty solid, just didn't come off very personable. National Jewish Health Patient– April, 2019 again...awesome. I tend to ask a lot of follow up questions and what ifs and I have always been given the courstey of a reply that suits ME (I always want to know loopholes or if THIS happens what order do I do THIS).
