I went to doctors for 15 months, including NJH and diagnosis and treatment did nothing. I was referred to Dr. Opperman by my pulmonologist. After listening to my history and symptoms, Dr Opperman diagnosed the problem right away and then verified it with a scope. With his treament an working with Excetional Speech, I breath much better, my speech and pitch has improved dramatically and the strain on my bronchial and trachea is no longer evident. I would and have already highly recommended Dr. Opperman. He takes time to explain everything. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Teresa at the front desk is amazing. She is organized, on top of ensuring that they accept your insurance, and very nice. Unfortunately, the outcome of my treatment was not to my satisfaction. I had vocal fold surgery 9 months ago and still cannot speak or work at the level I'd like to without pain. I have seen Kathe at the clinic for vocal therapy following my surgery, but I still experience pain when speaking for more than a couple hours. Colorado Voice Clinic hasn't been able to pinpoint why. I have spent thousands of dollars seeing a variety of therapists to try to address the pain from talking and still can only work at about 2/3 - 3/4 of the level I was working prior to surgery. Although I can't be certain that my outcome would have been different elsewhere, I'm disappointed in my experience and uncertain if I will ever be able to speak as I'd like without discomfort.

Dr. Opperman has helped me so much. I'm not 100% but I'm far better than I've been able to get under anyone else's care. He is very courteous, understanding and extremely knowledgeable. I firmly believe he's the best voice doctor in a multi-state area. I have been treated by many, many other doctors, holistic specialists--you name it I've tried it. His staff is also very courteous and everyone is respectful of my time--I never have to wait more than a minute. I'd highly recommend Dr. O.

There are hardly words for how grateful we are to Dr. Opperman and his team! Our daughter crushed her larynx in a trampoline accident and Dr. Opperman was her surgeon. He repaired her larynx with lots of pins and screws and made it possible for her to breath more comfortably. Her voice is still somewhat raspy but we consider his work to be a miracle. She lives a normal life with only that minor long-term complication. Thank God we found him... he has been a blessing to our family!

I met Dr. Opperman in February 2018 after working with other ENTs for 5 months could not provide a diagnosis.He spent almost an hour with me on my first visit and was able to diagnose my problem and prescribe treatment. Dr. Opperman's words that "we can fix this" meant the world to me. I knew I wouldn't be speechless forever! After two months of physical therapy and a new home regimen, I was able to talk and sing again! Dr. Opperman became a superhero in my book!

To begin with, the office is very clean and modern. Nice and welcoming environment. Checking in was easy the woman at the front desk was very friendly and was very helpful when I had questions about the forms. Dr. Opperman is very knowledgable and kind he doesn't throw medical jargon your way and is very easy to understand. Overall the appointment was very smooth and efficient.

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!
