I have been seeing Dr. Columbus for over 7 years. Him and his staff have been nothing but helpful and kind with my diagnosis. I would highly recommend Dr Columbus and his staff to anyone who has been suffering with chronic pain. 10/10 if you ask me

Great pain management doctor. Has an awesome sense of humor, listens and answers any questions I had/have. I have seen Dr. Columbus and his PA for a couple years now, and they patiently walked me through everything we tried. Ended up with a spinal cord stimulater, and it's the best thing we have tried. Would definitely recommend this doctor.

This man was horrible! He told me I shouldn't have any pain even though I have scoliosis which leaves me in tears after work. I waited over an hour and a half and he didn't even examine me! He just looked at my X-rays and told me to do yoga. I left in tears. His nurse wasn't surprised and told me to get a second opinion. The nurses know best and she seemed to have seen this before.

We had a very good experience with Dr. Columbus. He was informative and took his time explaining the problems my husband was having. He was able to get my husband the referral he needed to get his shoulder diagnosed. We would definitely recommend his to anyone seeking help with pain management.

Dr. Columbus was easy to talk to, listened to what I had to say. He did spend time going over what he was going to do. I got right in for an appointment.
in Loveland, CO |
Staff was extremely short-tempered and rude. I waited 8 weeks for an appointment, then waited 20 minutes in the exam room for Dr. Columbus. He was right outside the door chit-chatting. He did a 0.5 second exam before giving his opinion as fast as an auctioneer, then spent the rest of the visit telling me about his upcoming vacation.
