Not a great experience. Dr. Opperman was very rude and didn't seem to know what he was talking about. Him and his assistant were telling me different things and were not on the same page at all. The front desk worker was rude as well and didn't seem to care that I was waiting 40 minutes past my scheduled appointment. Would not recommend.

Dr. Opperman is excellent. I have not been able to smell anything for 14 years and now can smell, taste and breath! I had nasal polyps removed by another ENT 12 years ago and my sense of smell did not return. This time it did within 24 hours of surgery. The recovery has been painless. He is very thorough, communicates very clearly, and now has me on the best regime to keep the polyps from returning. Thank you VERY MUCH Dr. Opperman!

Colorado is lucky to have one of the best ENT specialists in the country right in our own backyard. Dr. Opperman has helped me numerous times with sinus problems and is an amazing resource any time I am struggling with ear, nose or throat issues. Thank you Dr. Opperman!!!
