What People Say About Dr. Armodios Hatzidakis, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr Hatzadakis is good. Visits run too short. Scheduling is a nightmare. 21 hours before surgery I get a call from Rose Medical for my medical history and current medication list. During that call we stumbled upon the fact that my time for surgery was moved from the morning to the afternoon. I called his office to confirm this and discuss food/medication. I was told the scheduler was on the phone but would call me right back. 4 hours later I called back and was on hold for over 30 minutes. Surgery is stressful enough without being left in the dark.

Awesome. I had a total reverse shoulder surgery with dr Hatzidakis. He was very professional. He listened. And the surgery was very successful. I had to stop seeing him due to the change of my insurance. I would highly recommend him

Dr. Hatzidakis has completed shoulder replacements on both right and left shoulders for me and has also completed shoulder surgery for two friends. My experience, as well as my friends, was excellent. Surgeries were made at Rose Hospital and the hospital staff had nothing but praise for Dr. Hatzidakis. Dr. Hatzidakis Western Orthopedics staff is highly trained and excellent in all respects.

I had a total shoulder replacement by Dr. Hatzidakis with absolutely fabulous results. I was very hesitant and had put off this surgery for several years. Now I wish I would have done it sooner. The surgery went without a problem and I guess I'm one of the lucky ones that had no pain after the 2nd day. I was very, very diligent with PT all the way through 9 months. I'm back after 1 year 100% and enjoy pickleball, tennis, golf and other retirement activities. Highly recommended. Great Dr.

I've never experienced anybody with such an ego and devoid of empathy. He may be a good surgeon but a one star human.

If you want the best, the very best, look no further! Not kidding, Dr. Hatzidakis is truly one of the finest orthopedic surgeons in the Denver area! And I should know....I have had two total shoulder replacement surgeries and never felt better! This brilliant surgeon is simply amazing...he is kind and caring and thoughtful! Rumor has it that he is actually rated #3 in the USA! So stop looking and schedule your appointment and start living life! I did and I couldn't be any happier!

Excellent surgeon. Husband had a complete reverse shoulder replacement. Pain was nothing like the rumors we had heard.

After two failed total shoulder revisions by Dr. Dave Schneider, I saw Dr. Hatzidakis. I cannot say enough positive things about my surgery and post op care. My husband is president of Panorama Ortho Clinic and I have had 6 total joint replacements. Dr. Hatzidakis was able to salvage and repair my right shoulder with post op care Dr. Schneider feels is not necessary. I would highly recommend Dr. Hatzidakis. Thank you so much for giving me back use of my right arm.

Dr Hatz Performed a total shoulder replacement for me on January 30 and on March 21 everything is going exactly as I was told it would. No surprises, no problems and total confidence for me during the entire procedure. Looking forward to a complete recovery and bright future. I cannot imagine having a more skilled or caring surgeon. Many, many thanks.

Before the surgery scheduling Dr. Hatzidakis and staff took the time to explain the process - pre-surgery, surgery, post surgery and rehabilitation protocol
