in Littleton, CO |
The service here was horrible I went in to get treated for complications with my sinus the doctor gave me a prescription for antibiotics, the receptionist tells me that she will call me for my next appointment and I never heard from her so I had to call to set up my 2nd and 3rd appointment! Then a month later after I finish my antibiotics I call back again and for a whole week the doctors office went straigt to voicemail. finally someone answered and tells me she is moving to Memphis.

Dr. Reid is extremely thorough in making a diagnosis. She is empathic, easy to talk to, and extremely knowledgable. She made sure to explore all avenues for my situation before settling on surgery, and was also conscientious about ensuring my insurance would cover it. Can't recommend her highly enough. She has exceptional training in her field.
in Bailey, CO |
I had 2 sinus surgeries and one cosmetic with Dr. Reid, years ago. I have had very infrequent sinus infections since then, and the fat tissue she removed from under my eyes have left me looking 50-something at age 68. She's an artist and I say this from years later.
in Denver, CO |
Dr. Reid definitely knows what she's doing. She diagnosed me correctly and helped me out during a hard medical time when I just wanted to feel better. The only problem is she seems way too busy and doesn't remember your case and goes over things you've already told her. The only thing bad is her staff. The receptionists don't know where they're doing and they harass you for payments even though you're current. She needs to hire a whole new set of people because they don't know what they're doing
New York, NY |
Staff lied about coverage and scheduling. The surgery was not scheduled as promised. I had to take that in my own hands. I was assured insurance would cover the office visits only to find 9 months later it was not. The communication with me was abysmal. I would never recommend this office

Dr. Reid performed sinus surgery on me to correct work performed prior. The results have been excellent, it was much less painful and the recovery was so much faster. I have referred my daughter to Dr. Reid.
in Arvada, Colorado |
All I can say, she is very compassionate and thorough in her evaluation. I have a lot of treatment that needs to be done. I will be going back in the near future. I can't thank Dr. Reid enough for allowing me to come in same day.
in Denver, CO |
Dr. Reid is an excellent doctor. She takes time to listen to her patients and she's very knowledgeable, warm and kind. She treats you like a VIP during each office visit and explains everything precisely. She's the best ENT!
