I've been a patient of Dr. Medina for several years and she is one of the best (if not THE best) in Colorado. She is prepared, focused, compassionate, understanding, really listens, but most of all, VERY knowledgeable. She is a great communicator and clearly wants what's best for me. I look forward to my visit every week.
