She was just busy but it was okay.

I have recommended this facility/doctor to others - love how I am actually listened to vs. talked down to.

I have had an ongoing [CONDITION] treatment was a 'shrug.'

National Jewish Health PatientMarch, 2017
I am somewhat dismayed that they told me nothing else can be done [patient information]. Beind sick 6-9 months out of the year is no fun. I am an active person.

National Jewish Health PatientFebruary, 2017
I absolutely appreciate my doctor, Dr. Truong, and actually look forward to seeing her. She is a great communicator, she connects. I feel heard and respected by her. I trust her knowledge and guidance. She is one of the best doctors I have ever seen, and I've been to a lot of doctors. She does more than treat me, she cares for me and that's amazing. I have recommended her to others and will continue to do so. I can't speak more highly of Dr. Truong.

National Jewish Health PatientFebruary, 2017
