Review of Dr. Heil

- in Fruita, CO |

Dr. Heil replaced my hip, performing the surgery at Colorado Canyons Hospital in Fruita. The whole experience was terrific: planning, surgical procedure, hospital stay, therapy and follow-up. (He encouraged me to walk/use the joint, sharing that most people have problems with joint replacement because they do NOT use the joint, or do their therapy properly.) As my hip joint failure was related to a congenital flaw, I am looking to replace the OTHER in a year or so- hope to return to him again!

Jerk, doesn't care about you, no time to answer questions. This office needs to get rid of this uncaring doc.

Review of Dr. Frazho

-Fruita, CO |

he didn't even let me tell him my symptoms. He x-rayed the wrong part of my spine. the medication he prescribed to call me before the MRI Was not to be prescribed with medication I was already taking because it could have caused me to stop breathing. His appointments last about 2 minutes and then he's out of there. He didn't even listen to my symptoms. He didn't answer my questions. The one question he did answer I knew was a bluff. he just wants to send you to physical therapy. go elsewhere.

Review of Dr. Gammon

- in Meeker, CO |

My husband saw Dr. Gammon after being referred to him by another doctor from RMOA. We were not impressed from the beginning! He called us to schedule a consult and discussed his plan and then told us to return in 60 days. We had already been 120 days waiting for the leg to heal with no improvement! On our return visit 60 days later, with no improvement he said we need to give it another 30 days and offered no explanation! That's when we moved our care to another practice! He didn't seem to care!

Review of Dr. Frazho


Does not listen to you, could care less about how you're feeling and is more interested in getting you out of his office than helping you.

Review of Dr. Clifford

- in Grand Junction, CO |

As a suggestion u guys might want to ck out spine Colorado and see what they do for patients. Dr Youssef set up practice for patients. They had the best pre op that covered all including body and mind health. Covered total health before surgery and didnt operate until they were sure u were well. They didnt ask but i lost 25-30 lbs before surgery knowing it would help. Excellent place.

Review of Dr. Deering


My son was born with a foot that appeared to have a shape similar to vertical talus aka rocker bottom. During my pregnancy, it was an IMMENSELY stressful time. We met with a genetic counselor to discuss possibilities to the cause of his foot "deformity." Not only has Dr. Deering explained in great detail, my son's foot, but she also made sure to ease my worries. She is fabulous with children, and the whole team there is dedicated to making my son feel comfortable during each visit.

Review of Dr. Gebhard

- in Grand Junction,CO |

I have battled lower back problems for years always putting off the inevitable, surgery. After talking to several friends and Drs in the medical field I set up an appointment with Dr Gebhard. In short it was the best decision I ever made. After two short weeks I am feeling better than I have in years. Back to golf at age 76 thanks to this true professional that really does care and follows thru with his promises. Surgery was an outstanding success as was the treatment at Community Hospital.
