Great Facility. Awesome doctors and staff. Would recommend you go and see them.
I visited the Thornton CO after ours on august 18 because my nose was in severe pain and I figued it was infected. One great thing is that they were open on a Saturday at 6:30 with a Broncos game going on. It is hard for me usually to see a doctor because I drive truck for a living and only get home for a few days every 5 weeks. So just the fact that they were open was nice. Upon arrival a gentleman gave a quick look and confirmed it was infected. He said depending on the severity they may have to send me to the hospital. He then gave me the choice of just going straight to the hospital or seeing what they could do and then maybe still have to go. I chose to stay and see what could be done. The Doctor was quick to get to me even though there were several people there.He quickly but thoroughly examined me and concluded that antibiotics should be more than sufficent in my case. He decided to up the dosage seeing as I drive and rarely get to doctors. He also gave me his card so I could call if I had any questions while I was on the road. He also prescribed some pain medication to help me get through the weekend until the antibiotics started to really work. Overall the entire staff was professional, helpful, caring, understanding, and even had a great sense of humor. I know now that is I am ever in the Denver area this is the ONLY place I will use in the future. I highly recomemd them, if they can't help you there they are quick to give you the location of an address that is open that can (a small child and his mother came in while I was there. The child needed stitches and this was not something they could perform at the time, bit within 2 minutes they had the family directed somewhere that could help.)
Everyone seemed real nice, but in treating my son who had been running a 104 temp for a few days, they said that he was just dehydrated, and charged me $300 to put him on an IV, while completely neglecting the fact that he had Pneumonia and needed Antibiotics. 4 days later, he was lethargic and still running a very high temp, so I took him in to a different Doctor...who told me he had Pneumonia, charged me $76 and put him on antibiotics. I feel like I got screwed at Afterours &amp; I feel like $300 was an exuberant amount of money to charge someone who is in a bad predicament, and then to be so incompetent as to miss something so dangerous as pneumonia....And right before Christmas. SHAME ON YOU! UPDATE.... After speaking to Marjorie at Afterours, who was very kind and very patient with me, I have updated this review. Marjorie listened thoughtfully and heard my story. She offered me a solution that was a real life saver. My child's symptoms never changed, so I honestly believe that he had Pneumonia at the time of my visit & I still feel that it was over looked. However, I explained to Marjorie that I had little money and that $300 was giant burden for me. She emailed me a Hardship Relief form & they refunded $150 to me which was a great relief.....Thank you.....that was huge to me.
My daughter was born with severe eczema from head to toe that was dismissed by most doctors as baby acne. Thankfully, I took her to see Dr. Kristin Carel at National Jewish Medical Center. Dr. Carel greeted us with not only care and kindness, but also an assurance that she would be able to help my baby girl. After conducting a thorough exam and skin testing, it was determined that my daughter had severe food allergies to dairy, soy, gluten, eggs, and nuts. Dr. Carel equipped us with the education and information to treat my daughter's skin and also how to avoid allergic reactions. My daughter's skin cleared and I felt comforted knowing that Dr. Carel and the entire staff at National Jewish would be there to support my family. That was nearly four years ago. Since then my daughter's skin has cleared completely with no signs of the original eczema. We continue to see Dr. Carel to maintain my daughter's health and well being. Dr. Carel has become more than our doctor, she has become a friend. I highly recommend her to any family that has children struggling with eczema, allergies, or asthma. I gave Dr. Carel five stars because I couldn't give her six.
