    National Jewish Health PatientJune, 2016
    Dr. Beautz has always been extremely knowledgeable, understanding and compassionate in treating my many complicated health conditions. I was very sorry to have to move out of state and lose her as my prime pulmonologist.

    National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
    I have never had a bad experience.

    National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
    She seemed more interested in me the last few times and the sessions were good. If this survey is for the last time only it would be rated as very good but overall it is only fair for several years.
