National Jewish Health Patient– February, 2016 The last visit with Dr. King included discussions that themselves were tricky, such as with to get my hernia fixed ...not straight forward, so neither was the conversation and/or conclusions. These subjects aren't black and white, and the conversation and conclusion reflected that, which as a patient left me feeling still undecided, questioning, etc.... It's hard to answer these questions because subjects/conditions skewed.
