National Jewish Health PatientDecember, 2016
I signed a form for a broncoscopy. after, thinking it over, I would like to discuss this a bit more.

National Jewish Health PatientDecember, 2016
the doctor told me that he might be referring me to a cardiologist. I guess I just want more answers but realistically know everything is being done to figure out what my problem is and resolving it. I know I could not get better care anywhere but since my appointment I have felt worse ands had more difficulty breathing and a higher pulse and all this frightens me . I am waiting for a call back from the doctor's office and know I will receive it today as promised. I am very grateful to be under the care of such an excellent physician and staff. I wish we had more of this kind of care everywhere for everyone. thank you!
