I was extremely pleased with Dr. Longcope. He is definitely an expert in his field. It is like having the Mayo Clinic come to you in Denver! He made sure he answered all of my questions and fully understood what type of surgery I needed and why. I would recommend him to anyone who needs this type of surgery.
in Durango, CO |
Dr. Longcope is over rated. He botched my surgery and then lied about what happened. He offered only 15% of the total cost of repairing the problem due to his errors. Rose Hospital also did not help either. I would stay away from both. Believe me, you don't want a colostomy bag for 6 weeks or more then additional surgery to fix it all. Think twice about your choice. Because neither Longcope or Rose will help you if there is a problem.
in Gypsum, CO |
Dr Longcope performed a resection on my sigmoid colon and removed a large cancerous tumor in the process. He also performed a temporary ileostomy so the anastomosis could heal. All procedures were performed successfully and without complications. He was always very clear in explaining the surgical procedures, and the requirements for a successful recovery. I would highly recommend Dr. Longcope to anyone requiring complicated gastroenterological surgery.
