Dr. Koschar gives the impression her attention is somewhere else. Perhaps this is just an issue of style. But, it is rather off-putting. It would be good if she worked at projecting more of a friendly, caring sense.

National Jewish Health PatientJune, 2020
This was my first contact with this Dr. and I was very pleased.

National Jewish Health PatientJune, 2020
Dr. Kochar is excellent.

National Jewish Health PatientJune, 2020
the doctor was informed regarding my history and was able to judge from my present concerns the correct course of action

National Jewish Health PatientJune, 2020
I saw Dr. Kochar once before and liked her so much that I talked my daughter into going to see her. Dr. K was excellent, very knowledgeable and explained things very well to me. She is very thorough, and that is why I drive 4 hours round trip to see her.

I felt a little rushed.

I made a long trip to this hospital for a second opinion because it was so highly recommended and I was thoroughly impressed with the whole experience. I found your hospital took my concerns more seriously and got me in a lot sooner than my own cardiologist in [my home town]. I found the doctor outstanding in her concern and ability to explain the situation with me and in making a good plan for care.
