The best doctor I have ever worked with

Dr. Barolat is the BEST surgeon ever. I have had several surgeries, and my experience with Dr. Barolat and his WHOLE office and staff has been nothing short of wonderful. I had a Spinal Cord Stimulator implanted for a chronic thoracic pain condition, and the results are amazing. I no longer take any opiate type of medication, and I have cut my normal meds down by more than half in just a year. Dr. Barolat is TOP NOTCH, and the warmest surgeon you will ever meet!

Dr. B is an incredible surgeon and also an incredibly kind and caring man. It is rare that a talented surgeon has such an incredible bedside manner. He is very aware of the fact that everyone in his office is involved in patient care. Every single person in this office is kind, smart and knowledgeable. They make you feel like family which means a lot.. Justin Call is the smartest and kindest PA I have ever met. This office focuses on helping every patient improve their quality of life.

Dr. Barolat is by far the MOST genuine caring physician I have ever had to see, (I have seen ALLOT) His staff is ALSO EXTREMELY caring and knowledgeable. Not everyone likes going to the Dr., I actually look VERY forward to going to their office. I HAVE recommended them to everyone I talk to who needs their particular services. I would rate them a 1000 on a scale of 1-10!.

Dr B is a very intelligent and compassionate person who takes time to hear your concerns then after reviewing my history with me explains what he feels is best plan for me. He took great care of me during and post surgery. He's my rock. They broke the mold after him. He's the real deal! Thanks Dr B!
Thank you for the positive feedback! We appreciate the kind words.
He seems to have the experience so why if he cares, why doesn't he give back through charity or medicare?

Fantastic overall experience as a new patient. The entire staff was extremely helpful and kind throughout the visit. They made it very easy for an "out of towner" with everything. The staff and of course Dr. Barolat were fantastic. Very knowledgeable in his field and made me feel very optimistic in my future. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Looking forward to procedure with him.

Love this man. He is the kindest, most patient surgeon I've ever met. He acts as if he has nothing better to do than talk to you during his appointments, which of course he does. But he truly cares about his patients so he takes the time. His staff and PA are awesome too.
in Lone Tree, CO |
One of the most personable doctors I have ever had. He takes the time to listen to what you have to say, he asks a lot of questions and actually listens to the answers. He doesn't give out blanket treatment options as he wants to find the treatment that is best for my condition. Amazing experience!
