National Jewish Health Patient– June, 2023 It seemed as he was preoccupied with something else so my time was brief and felt rushed. National Jewish Health Patient– May, 2023 *Dr. Eddy is the BEST! NJH is very lucky to have such a brilliant and care doctor on staff. National Jewish Health Patient– May, 2023 *Dr. Eddy is the best. He is an excellent dr. in all aspects. He goes over and above any dr. I've ever had. National Jewish Health Patient– April, 2023 Provider did not seem fully aware of my health issues aside from Lung issues. I had to remind the physician that I am on a medication for RA which has an effect on my lung treatment plan. The physician should have been aware of that, as it's not new information and should have been taken into account when reviewing my lung cultures and determining my treatment plan. My physician responded to a recent, potentially life-altering health concern that I'm having by giving a very superficial, flippant comment- dismissing my anxiety about it and the seriousness of the situation. National Jewish Health Patient– April, 2023 *Dr. E. is great - he knows his staff & explains things very clearly. He gave me his mobile number first visit - appreciate the care.

His demeanor, knowledge, willingness to listen, overall care provided are all excellent. National Jewish Health Patient– February, 2022 Dr. Eddy was very attentive and took plenty of time with me. My only complaint is he was very black and white about what I needed to do with very little understanding of how that might work for me. He told me I should never go to my basement and should never garden. He is younger and I feel is a good doctor and perhaps hasn't acquired a more balanced approach.
