Service Excellence

Celebrating Outstanding Patient Service

At National Jewish Health we are passionate about Service Excellence, which includes everything from our outstanding medical and diagnostic expertise, Nursing, and patient centered care. We also believe great customer service is a crucial part of an outstanding patient experience. This page and associated links present results from our surveys, and celebrates the outstanding work that the National Jewish Health teams do, through the eyes of our patients.

We measure all aspects of patient satisfaction using an independent patient satisfaction company named Press Ganey. For more than 30 years, Press Ganey has been an industry leader in improving the quality, safety and patient care experience across more than 26,000 health care facilities. Specifically, National Jewish Health surveys patients who have received services in our medical clinics, inpatient service, and outpatient oncology. We are one of a small, but growing number of healthcare providers that post our survey results and comments about our providers publically on our website.

National Jewish Health Service Excellence Hero!

Eileen Wang, MD, MPH

Dr. Wang is an allergist and immunologist in the Division of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. AAI seems to get more than its share of hard to please patients! She is one of the few 5-Star providers at National Jewish Health, and the only one who does not specialize in providing service to VIPs.  Dr. Wang also maintains some of the highest patient satisfaction ratings at National Jewish related to patient access:  4.46 in “Promptness in returning calls,“ and 4.47 in “Ease of contacting.” She also supervises the AAI fellows.

Here is what patients say about Dr. Wang:

“Dr. Wang is an excellent doctor. She knew my whole history the first time we met. Now she impresses me with how she listens to what is going on with me. She always has suggestions on what I can do to feel better.”

“Dr. Wang has worked with me to stabilize my allergies and asthma. My health has improved and I have great confidence in her care for my well being. She is very professional and competent and always goes the extra mile in developing my treatment plan as well as knowing my personal preferences and limitations.”

“Dr. Wang's resident was very thorough making sure to go through all of my medical history. They spent so much time with me, I was astonished. She answered all of my questions and listened to every concern. The resident had very thorough record keeping and was extremely kind. Her communication with Dr. Wang seemed seamless, which seems an almost impossible expectation in most clinics. I feel like I got a lot of misinformation cleared up from misgivings of my condition from previous practitioners. Dr. Wang and her resident made me feel cared for, listened to and dare I say cherished as a patient.  .  .I couldn't be more relieved to have her on my care team.

Patient Comments

“I couldn't believe how caring Dr. Pacheco was. She was so intense into my whole being, not just about the medical issue I was seeing her, but talked to me like a friend wanting to get to know who I was. If she could be my primary care doctor, I would be there. My own doctor of several years doesn't know me as well as Dr. Pacheco covered in one day.  I sing praises to her, she was wonderful. Thank You”  Received 3/25/2021
