Patient Comments (2)
in Colorado Springs, Colorado |
I have been seeing Dr. Mechanic for the past 12 years or so. I had MS. He is an outstanding doctor. He knows what is happening in the MS field, keeps abreast of the latest treatments, studies, trials and research in the field. He taught Neurology at University of Colorado School of Medicine, has had a private practice where he had more than 1000 patients. He has been recognized as one top Neurologists in Colorado as well as the country for many years. Dr. Mechanic is one of the best MS doctors.

Dr. Mechanic gave my wife and I not only thoughtful understanding, valuable insight, but real hope. Dr. Mechanic explains as he goes along and waits for follow up questions. He includes the rest of my wife's medical team for a plan of action to manage my wife's very complex medical issues to make our lives as whole as possible. Dr. Machanic along with his excellent staff have continue to go above and beyond our past expectations for medical care. We highly recommend Dr. Mechanic.
