ongoing hand issue he ordered an MRI finally
Aurora, CO |
Dr. Britton is very professional and makes me feel very comfortable at each visit.

We had full confidence in Dr. Britton after his thorough evaluation of my daughter's dislocated thumb. He gave us excellent care and was cognizant of her desire to return to sport quickly but safely. She accomplished exactly that with his guidance. Highly recommend him & his hand therapy team .
in Parker, CO |
Eric is the best doctor I know. He is a leader in his field and yet extremely personable in his office. He takes the time to make sure you understand the diagnosis and is an exceptional hand surgeon
Aurora, CO |
Dr. Britton is a very skilled surgeon, he moved my ulnar nerve perfectly.Surgery is where his passion lies. However, his bedside manner is severely lacking and he clearly prefers to do surgery versus minimally invasive procedures. Be prepared to get push back and feel judged if you don't want to do surgery, and if your case is potentially compounded by multiple issues, you will also be made to feel like you are intruding on his time because you are not cut and dry.
in Parker, Co |
I had an excellent experience with Dr. Britton. It is very easy to talk to Dr. Britton and he always took time to answer questions in an easy to understand way. At the same time all my appointments with Dr. Britton were on-time and I never had a long wait to see him. It was easy to schedule appointments which tells me he does not over book himself like many other doctors I have dealt with. Overall my entire experience with Br. Britton and his staff was outstanding.
Aurora, Co |
Dr. Britton removed a cyst from my thumb. He is not friendly or personable, boardering on rude. He seemed sort of inconvenienced by my presence and procedure. I never saw him smile as he does in this photo. In the course of 3 months, the cyst reformed to be twice as large. He never mentioned that this was a possibility. I have made an appointment with another hand surgeon to have this second procedure. On the other hand, nursing & admin. staff and facility were awesome!
in Denver, CO |
I dislocated my finger and entered as a patient to Dr.Britton, unable to bend my finger at all. He prescribed PT twice a week for 5 months. When Dr. Britton evaluated, he said he would not consider surgery and dismissed me as a patient saying my finger is what it shall be. I am still unable to bend without substantial forced manipulation. Additionally, I had to contact the billing numerous of times to instruct them on how to properly bill/code my insurance and correct my bills. So frustrating.
in Castle Rock, CO |
After shaking hands with an AFA football player the back of my hand swelled up to the size of a softball. Dr. Britton performed surgery fixing the problem leaving and no visible scar. Thank you so much Dr Britton for saving my hand.
in Denver, CO |
I had fractures in my right hand and left elbow he still insisted the nurse put my IV in my broken elbow. He said, Just do it then turned and walked away. She put it in my hand, When I pointed out to him at my 2nd post-op appointment I still could not move my wrist despite NEVER missing a PT appt he said there was no reason for that and then wanted to talk about a second surgery to remove hardware. I am 41 years old, unable to turn door knobs use keys and many other things, he doesn't care,
