Special Interests

My special interest is state-of-the-art comprehensive care of patients with diffuse parenchymal lung diseases. Knowledge and diagnostic methods continue to improve our ability to provide more precise diagnoses and therapies to preserve quality of life and prevent disease progression. I also believe shared decision making is an integral part of effective and compassionate care.

Bad experience. Very condescending. Have asked to work with a different provider.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2020
Each appointment *Dr. Koslow reads his last note about me, out loud. As if a reminder to him of who I am. I find this behavior unprofessional. He should do this before entering the room so I feel confident in his treatment plan because he KNOWS my case.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2020
very good

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2020
Dr. Koslow (and his team) is one of the most caring and knowledgeable doctors I have ever encountered. He takes the time and patience to explain everything to me and my input is included in my "plan".

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2020
Dr Koslow is by far the most knowledgeable, and gracious medical professional I have ever had the pleasure to deal with. He did not hurry the exam and answered all of my questions.

National Jewish Health PatientApril, 2020
Dr. Koslow has called me at home 3 times, that is so very impressive.

National Jewish Health PatientApril, 2020
