At first, in 2013, we were extremely satisfied. Over time we became less and less satisfied. When my son was placed on hemodialysis, no effort was made to transfer him to a proper pediatric dialysis center. Instead we were falsely led to believe that home hemodialysis through DaVita was possible. When that narrative changed and I questioned why it changed and first asked for, then demanded an explanation, the doctor/patent/parent relationship became extremely strained. We finally got our son into a proper pediatric hemodialysis center on June 3, 2020 after 18 months of hemodialysis and in one month have seen major progress; fluid volume off is now tolerable without cramping, unnecessary medications have been eliminated.

Dr. Banks is an excellent doctor, and explains everything in ways that my daughter and I can understand. She never rushes, and makes us feel as if she has all the time in the world to devote to us. I know Dr. Banks truly cares about my daughter's health, both now and into the future.

Dr. Banks is phenomenal in that she truly listens to you! She provided me the detail I needed to make informed choices about my son and his treatment. I have yet to feel rushed by her or any of her staff. I have been an intensive care nurse for more than 2 decades and she is the best of the best!

Dr. Banks is amazing! Being a new mom and my son having a complication with his kidneys, she has really calmed me, and always made sure I understood what is going on. I can tell she is very passionate about her job and that is something that makes me feel so good going to her.

Rocky Mountain Kidney Center, Dr. Banks and her team are top notch! We couldn't be more pleased with the care given and shown for our daughter who has been diagnosed with FSGS. Dr. Banks has spent ample time to inform us about this condition and really went to bat with our insurance company to cover the genetic testing that revealed the FSGS. She really cares and that speaks volumes. A trusting relationship is so important and we couldn't be more confident in our daughter’s health care!

My son has autoimmune disease and JRA. He began having other symptoms that none of his doctors could figure out what was wrong with him. Dr. Banks, discovered my son had high blood pressure and was able to give him the proper treatment. My son has many doctors due to his disease and Dr. Banks is by far his favorite doctor. She and her staff are amazing. I highly recommend Dr. Banks!
