What People Say About Dr. Kern Buckner, MD
Reply
I cannot say enough about National Jewish Health. It was not until this year 2017 that I started using their doctors and each has been great. National Jewish Health is one amazingly well run organization and I cannot imagine going anywhere else again. Dr. Buckner is a delight and I felt so VERY safe with him. I can clearly see why so many people love him. God bless you, Dr. Buckner, you have made a difference in this world.
