    I tried this doctor twice. I don't click at all with her and will be looking for a new provider..

    National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
    I had been to 2 other doctors about my problem. They took no time or very little time to explain my situation and my options. I went to NJH because I heard from others that I would get a good service. I'm very grateful NJH & *Dr. Mehrnaz were available.

    National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
