Dr. Mountain is maybe a little too thorough. Ultra Conservative.

*dr. Mountain was angry that he didn't have my recent hospital records, and began yelling at myself & my daughter. He kept yelling for 5-6 minutes, apologized, then began yelling again.

National Jewish Health PatientJuly, 2016
*Dr. Mountain _____ enough about me, that when my sister passed, she was his patient also - He called me in to make sure I was alright and handling it well - He goes beyond any other Dr. I've has -
