Very knowledgeable about ordering necessary tests and sympathetic to the situation of not getting all expected answers from docs due to overwhelming amt of information for them to peruse. We both are hopeful for an inclusive, accurate data bank on web providing them latest research from varied point of views.

It is a different way to practice medicine than you might be accustomed to but I think the overall care is better. It is only the doctor, who takes your payment, puts all your information into his laptop while you are sitting with him. He is a good listener and practices holistically.

I was quite disappointed. I really did not like dr Jaster as much as dr Cunningham. He didnt really listen to me or even know what dr cunningham and i had talked about. He was kind of rude and just talked at me the whole time, made me feel very uncomfortable. I will continue to see Dr C, as he was amazing.

Had numerous problems picking up my prescriptions from the pharmacy, because of the lack of office staff and the pharmacy's inability to get in touch with the office. Additionally, I believe, the direction of Life Medicine to take a more natural route for patient treatment might be taking precedent over what is best for the patient.

Dr. Jaster is always focused on providing the best medical advice across several options, blending eastern and western philosophies, without pushing prescription drugs. In fact quite the opposite. Have only been seeing Dr. Jaster as primary for one year, yet I have seen drastic positive changes in my health!

To begin with, Dr Jaster is a very nice person with a humble personality. He does talk in detail and any length you want to go to. You can definitely go and check him out to see if he meets your needs as a physician. What I found is that it is very difficult to communicate with him when your appointment is over. Obviously, things do come up after the appointment and not every time you can travel 30 miles to go see him. So every time you have a question that you would want him to address directly, you'll have to book an appointment. If you can't go see him, you'll have to pay for a telephonic conversation with him. Even reports won't be discussed over the phone. He doesn't have a staff/nurse that can address things on his behalf. If you are ok with all this, do give him a try.

Getting an appointment to visit when you are sick wasn't an option with this doctor. Also, the additional charges for refilling chronic prescription medication is a huge turn off.

The office is located in an old mansion in Denver's 5 Points neighborhood. Upon entering, I was incredibly confused on where to go and there was no one to help me find my way, so I called Dr. Jaster's answering service and she was able to let me know where to wait. After meeting with Dr. Jaster, I felt much more at ease. He was incredibly kind and offered me lots of options and additional information and things to try on things I can do to help with my ailments.

I think Dr. Jaster could work if you're ballin' out, or have dope insurance coverage. For me, his practice was not the right fit. I had bloodwork done, and called his office to see if my results came in. The office said that they did receive my results, but I would have to make an in-person appointment (and be charged accordingly) to discuss them. I texted my dad, who is a physician back in New York — he informed me that under HIPPA law, I am entitled to my results. So, I did some digging online and found my results through LabCorp's website. And WHADDYA KNOW — my bloodwork came back normal! I appreciate Dr. Jaster's attention to holistic health & wellness, but because I have basic insurance, and because I don't have the time or resources to be making doctor's appointments on the regz — I simply could not afford to comply with Dr. Jaster's recommendations. Thus, I would not recommend him to those under similar circumstances as me.

Ive been seeing dr Jaster for about 8 months or so, he is a great doctor, i love the different setting where the nurses take blood pressure and all that, instead it is him, he takes the time hes very compassionate, and not only helps with whatever issue yoh have, but gives great advice on diet and nutrition, and that means a lot to me. He inspires me to want to be a healthier person!!!
