Dr. Toribara was very concerned that I understood the reasons for the tests and the procedures

National Jewish Health PatientNovember, 2016
I really enjoy my appointments with Dr Toribara!

National Jewish Health PatientAugust, 2016
I get the feeling my doctor does not know what is wrong with me, or what to do, or where to go from here. But, two other Gastroenterologists did not know what is wrong or what to do either!

I am finally getting the care I've needed for well over a decade. I just kept hoping if I kept giving good care, someday I'd get it myself. I mean every 10 I just gave. ALL the people I have dealt with have been truly doing their job and then some. My turn has finally come.
