Patient Comments (17)
Denver |
I called the office cold with no referral, and was able to get into the office in less than 7 days to be treated for a non-emergency issue. Dr. T's bedside manner is great. Services were provided in-office in one visit, which cured the issue. Very professional and efficient front office staff. Office is clean and well-organized with easy, free parking (big deal in the city in this location).

Very friendly staff, exceptionally clean office, professional dress codes, and excellent care.
Salida, CO |
I could not be happier with my experience with Dr. Thiagarajah. I am 71 and needed eyelid surgery. He explained all the options, took as long as I needed and answered all my questions. He exudes skill and confidence and after looking at online reviews, I am so pleased that I chose him to do my surgery. In all my pre and post operative appointments, I waited less than 10 minutes and because I always arrived early, twice I left before my appointment was even scheduled. I highly recommend him.
in Boulder, CO |
Dr. Thiagarajah was very kind and explained my condition clearly. The procedure went very well and there were no complications and no scars! Generally speaking, I am not fond of doctors, procedures or anything of the type and tend to favor alternative health support systems, however, my circumstance required surgical intervention - Dr. T. proved to be an excellent choice!

Dr. T removed several lesions from neck and face. I was nervous about receiving a numbing shot and he made me feel at ease throughout the entire process. I had such a great experience that I am going to go back for botox in the future.
