  1. I am trying to get in touch with Garas….I realize he has left Exempla…I called, and the receptionist in Lafayette was less than helpful. She told me he was now associated with Boulder Community Hospital…I called, and they have no record of him.
    Can you or someone assist with sending along his new contact info?
    Thank you,
    Cathy

    • I do not his his contact info. They are correct in that he is now at BCH, and you will most likely need to find him there to be in touch as we cannot not give you personal contact information and being that he is no longer at Exempla, we no longer have a means to put anyone in touch with him.
