Patient Reviews (6)

Very friendly. Listens to patients.
in Aurora, CO |
Dr. V. is one of the best doctors I have had. He is understanding, takes the time to really understand what is going on, is sincerely concerned with whatever ailment is happening, and does a great job of getting the situation under control and corrected. Dr. V had a great sense of humour and that means a lot to me. With the illness I have, I need to have a sense of humour....and he is there right with me! :-) The only reason I am leaving Dr. V. is because I am moving out of state.
in Parker, CO |
I have been seeing Dr. Vahabzedeh for two years for the diagnosis and treatment of microscopic colitis. He was very thorough throughout the diagnostic process and has been keen to find an excellent treatment plan. He's always prompt during appointments and takes my concerns into consideration.
Littleton, CO |
It is very important to eel that your Dr. is actually listening to the specific problems you are having. Dr. Vahabzadeh has been treating me for over a year and I have never felt rushed when talking with him and have total confidence in him. He is engaged with you in trying to find answers, not just easy solutions! I highly recommend him!
in Lone Tree, Co. |
I have seen Dr. Vahabzadeh for four years for treatment of asymptomatic Crohn's Disease. This has included three colonoscopies and many office visits. My case is unusual, and Dr. V has been extremely informative and thorough. His recommendations always come after much consideration, including discussions with colleagues, and he explains my situation to me in terms I can understand. Just as important, he listens to my concerns and thoughts too. Ideal patient-doctor relationship.
in Centennial |
The nurse apologized for his rudeness when he did not introduce himself to me before the procedure. I was not given enough anesthesia and I felt sharp pain during my colonoscopy. No one I have EVER spoken to has ever felt any pain during s colonoscopy. I think he is incompetent.
