Special Interests

My clinical area of interest is in adult asthma, specifically adult onset and difficult to treat asthma. I hope to continue contributing to the science of airway inflammation in asthma via clincial and translational research. In our labs, we are working to characterize the phenotypes and endotypes of asthmatics, with the ultimate goal of tailored therapy for each patient with asthma.

Dr Guntur is respectful, attentive, diligent and thoughtful. I am so grateful that she is heading my care. Thank you. As for National Jewish....I say it every time I visit: It is a well oiled machine. Everyone there seems incredibly competent at their role and passionate about patient care. Thank you.

*Dr. Guntur is fantastic. She gives me great confidence in my treatment and upholds reputation of NJH.

National Jewish Health PatientApril, 2019
My appt. with Dr. Guntur was a surprising easy experience. I generally have intense anxiety in Dr. offices and hospitals. I so appreciate all the information and set up for testing she has for me. Most of all, I appreciate that she did not lecture, blame or shame me for my condition [PHI]. Looking forward to working with Dr. Guntur and NJH to help me turn my health around as much as possible.

National Jewish Health PatientMarch, 2019
At my age and condition, many problems. We discussed, and agreed (I think!), that each patient offers a personal problem, and that not all "solutions" fit every patient. Liked her thoughtful approach.

National Jewish Health PatientMarch, 2019
Dr. Guntur was wonderful and listened carefully to what I had to say. I've had my problem for 2 years so hopefully we can get it explained.

National Jewish Health PatientMarch, 2019
*Dr. Guntur made me feel like I was her only patient - Took a lot of time to answer my questions. Put me on a game plan in very short time.

I am extremely impressed with her!!

National Jewish Health PatientFebruary, 2019
Dr. Guntur was terrific - this was my first appointment and my husband and I were most concerned that she would actually listen to my extensive and complicated health history and work with us going forward with managing my health needs and concerns. We were very very happy.
