National Jewish Health PatientSeptember, 2018
*Dr. Katial is not in clinic regularly. So it is difficult to rely on his treatment availability. He is not regularly 'in' clinic & it seems like a 'hit & miss' who I can see for medical needs.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2018
Zero explanation. 4. No one @ NJH has ever attempted to involved me in my decisions, or to even explain anything despite my many well researched relevant questions. I never even was allowed follow up opportunity.
