Dr. Toribara was superb. Never met a healthcare professional so easy to talk to and who appeared to care about my case. Spending time I felt he needed to spend with someone else sicker than me, and explaining research and GI topics I had NO idea existed....and I have been in the healthcare industry for 40 years!

National Jewish Health PatientNovember, 2018
Dr Toribara took a complete and through medical history from me. I came to him with conflicting diagnoses. He explained why this may have happened and ordered diagnostic testing in order to get the proper diagnosis in order to proceed with treatment.
