STORY:
Dr. Denmark was our doctor during the 1960's & 1970's when my three children were growing up . At that time her home/office was in Sandy Springs. She was not only a wonderful doctor but also a very good friend. Our home was only five minutes from her office which was great. HAPPY 114th Dr.Denmark and thank you for being there. I purchased many of her book "every child needs a chance" and pass them along to anyone I meet with a new baby.

Columbus, OH
STORY:
I had unexplained spikes in blood pressure, low potassium, exhaustion, and events of tachardyia. With great care, she was able to remove the fear and uncertainty of my disease which was previously though to be induced by anxiety. She has been able to effectively diagnose, educate, and effectively treat my disease which I now know as "Conn's Syndrome" or Conn's Disease. Through her dedicated patient care, communication, and leadership I have a better quality of life. Her patient care is the best!
