He was very thorough and gives me great hope that we will find some answers and get clarity about my physical issues.

National Jewish Health PatientDecember, 2019
Kind of impressed he knew the lyrics to "Hey Joe" by Jimmy Hendrix, AND was willing to enter in with me!

National Jewish Health PatientNovember, 2019
I was so impressed with Dr Toribarra's manner, knowledge, interest in getting to the underlying causes of my illness. And throughout my time in the hospital, when he saw me waiting for another appointment he went out of his wasy to speak and ask how I was doing. I wanted to spend more time with him ( and will since I'm returning to NJH in January. )
