|Patient testimonial for Dr. Robin Smith, Westminster:|
My name is Margaret Brumen. I'm 90 years old. Dr. Robin Smith has been our family doctor for over 15 years. My husband, Mark, passed away six months ago at the age of 94 so we've had lots of different doctors throughout the years.
Dr. Smith is the best one we ever had. She is never too busy to listen to you and spend time with you and keep us healthy and show she really cares for old people. We felt very lucky to have had her as our doctor.
|Patient testimonial for Dr. Sergio Murillo, Pueblo|
Having come from Michigan, it was tiresome trying to find a physician who fit, especially in an area where the doctor/patient ratio is low. So, when we found Dr. Murillo it was like a prayer answered from heaven above.
Doctor Murillo is so knowlegeable; in just giving him my symptoms he can give me a correct and direct diagnosis. More than that, I feel Dr. Murillo and his staff are like an extended family for us. This doctor sincerely cares and wants to help. At any rate, he will be our family doctor forever.
Thank you, Dr. Murillo!

|Patient testimonial for Dr. Christine Linares and Tara O'Connor, Lone Tree|
I was diagnosed with cancer in August 2010. Both Dr. Christine Linares and Tara Oâ€™Connor have been a tremendous support system for my wife and me. They always made themselves available anytime we needed them.
Ms. Oâ€™Connor was especially involved in our journey. Many times she called my wife to get updates and she even visited me in the hospital. She was also a very intricate individual in a benefit that was held to raise money for my wife and me. The money was used to pay medical bills and Iâ€™m so grateful for all the time and effort Tara has invested in our lives. She even made breakfast burritos to help raise funds for us!
Tara has been so amazing and has been a great source of encouragement and support through this journey. Our relationship with Tara has evolved into a great friendship because she cares so deeply for her patients.
Iâ€™m thankful for Tara and Dr. Linares. They have been there from the very beginning and they walked with us every step of the way. Iâ€™m now in full remission, and they have celebrated the wonderful news with us.
I can never fully express what their support has meant to us, but they have helped us get through our journey and have made it a little easier to walk Thank you Dr. Linares and Tara Oâ€™Connor.
