Dr. Coville treated me like garbage. In the 5-minute he was willing to spend with me, Dr. Coville didn't explain my MRI (he may not have even looked at it), briefly looked at my knee, and said "there's nothing I can do for you". I asked a couple specific questions about my MRI results and how to deal with pain I was experiencing and instead of addressing my concerns, he said "I'm sorry, there's nothing I can do for you" and left. I wasn't even sure if my appointment was over. Terrible doctor.

Terrible and unethical as well as providing misinformation controversial of steroid bad reactions that have to do with diagnosis of arthritis then offering prednisone shot? He threw my dads paperwork out, and refused medicine in alternative for shot Plus he was severely rude. I'm praying others prevent wasting there time with an unethical, lack of compassion or even help ! Dr faro is the only good doctor at orthopedic physicians. I have him recorded if you need his true colors proof.

Very disappointed I have had pain in my hip for over a year I went to see this Dr to resolve the problem to get off pain medication and he told me I should not be using pain medication for this problem. He was rude very short never looked at my mri film then told me there was nothing he could do and went to walk out never offered to help with physical therapy a hip injection nothing I work in the medical field with orthopedic doctors I am aware of the things needed to help resolve the problem.
in Englewood, CO |
It took months to get in because they misplaced my paperwork after receiving my referral. They called me three times to schedule an appointment after I'd already been scheduled. Dr. Coville was dismissive, rude, and interrupted me when I tried to talk. He snickered at the fact I'd even received an MRI, saying I shouldn't have had one. When showing me my MRI, he was looking at the wrong side of my ankle, which his assistant pointed out to him. Appointment lasted 3 or so minutes.
