What People Say About Dr. Christopher Stees, DO

I recently moved from Atlanta and was looking for a cardiologist that was well respected within my insurance program. I saw Dr Stees reviews and decided to give him a try. My first appointment with Dr Stees was excellent. Pre-visit health and insurance forms were emailed to me, allowing ease of completion. My appointment started on time, Dr Stees took the necessary time to thoroughly explain my condition, where he believed I was at and what I should be doing to help minimize deterioration.

Dr Stees corrected a heart issue I was having and gave me my life back! He was kind, caring, competent, had a great bedside manner and wasn't afraid to admit he didn't know everything! It is true that the wait in his office might be long, but the best things are worth waiting for, and he is spending his time giving excellent care. He sets the bar for great medicine that every doctor should strive to achieve.

Dr Stees is great! I moved here from NYC 5 years ago and I’ve seen several cardiologists who were good but left me still in search of the right cardiologist. I think my search is over. Dr Stees is relatable, knowledgeable and answered all my questions. I highly recommend him.

My wife and I have been patients of Dr. Stees for almost five years now. We have both been through ablation procedures (A-fib and VT) with him with good outcomes. Also, Dr. Stees has been pro-active in helping me pursue a further diagnosis of a very uncommon cardiac disease, and has helped me understand and identify courses of action to deal with it. He is always professional, is a good listener, and takes the time to provide answers to every question that is posed. We recommend him most highly.

When other doctors didn't believe my concerns (because of my age), I was referred to Dr. Stees. He took me seriously from my first visit and has always treated me with utmost respect. Dr. Stees discovered a serious issue with my heart and acted swiftly. I will be forever grateful for his help. My life has been forever changed thanks to him.

I think Dr. Stees is a great doctor and I am here to see him for the 3rd time today. My appt was for 3pm and it is now 4:10pm. This is the second time for me that he’s been over an hour late. My time is valuable too. This is not ok. Further, no one on the staff or the front office seem to care whatsoever.

Dr. Stees is the BEST!!! He was very professional and methodical in how he approached my electrical short problem with my heart. I first saw him in April 2015, and continue to see him several times a year for follow-up evaluation. I recommend Dr. Stees and Denver Heart to anyone experiencing heart issues. Dr. Stees is very friendly, personable and explains his plan/treatment in detail in terms any patient can understand. Like I already said, he's the "BEST"!!!

Dr. Stees did an excellent job diagnosing my PVCs. I informed him that I did not want to take any medication and he recommended ablation, which has been great for me. 5 months post-op and I am still without palpitations. I feel MUCH better. His staff was top notch, I remained conscious for the majority of the procedure and witnessed a well coordinated team, even though my procedure was not straight forward. I would recommend Dr. Stees and his staff to anyone who is suffering from PVCs.

The worst medical care I've received in years, doesn't seem to care for patients personal needs/ questions. I've once waited 2 hours PAST my appointment time and wait almost a half hour past my appointment time every appointment scheduled. I'm also put on hold with scheduling for at least 10-20 minutes whenever I call, even in times of emergency. My appointments have been scheduled for incorrect dates/times more than twice. I strongly discourage going here.
