What People Say About Dr. Joan Eldridge, MD
RecentMost Helpful

She has been my heart doctor for thirty years since I had a serious heart attack in 1989. I normally see her once a year now and am glad to travel close to a hundred miles to her office. I could get a much closer cardiologist to treat me but she is a sweetheart and has kept my old heart ticking a long time. If you live in the Denver-Parker area and need a cardiologist, consider her.

I've been her patient for over 20 years. I had heart problems in my forties, but now I'm 65. Does that mean anything to you? If you need a caring doctor who will work with you to make you better, then Dr. Eldridge is a great choice. You may have a problem getting to see her, but it's because she's really good. Being a patient of hers for more than 20 years, I know her well. Not only has she saved my life, but she is a true friend. I love her.

Dr. Eldridge is an outstanding physician and an amazing human being. She is compassionate, completely aware of all advances in the care of the heart and genuinely cares about her patients. We have been patients of Dr. Eldridge for almost twenty two years and she remembers all of the details of her patients. She is proactive in caring for her patients and doesn't wait for situations to deteriorate before acting, she cares about being aware of any possible problems. There is no one better.
