I was delighted to meet Dr. Bee! He was so attentive to what I said, asked excellent questions, and thought through my situation carefully. I could not have been more impressed with his willingness to consider all the options, show me the X-ray and MRI information, and explain his thinking on it all. I can recommend him without hesitation!

With a degenerating spine I have had multiple operations with Dr Bee. Not only has he always been very professional but is an extremely skilled surgeon. My back is totally stabilized. Dr Bee has always taken the time to explain my situation thoroughly. Would highly recommend him.

Neck and shoulder pain. Dr. Bee is a very good communicator. He doesn't push unnecessary treatments on you. He gives clear options for treatment. You leave with a feeling that he cares about you as a person.

Dr Bee is thorough, caring and surrounded by a great team of experts. He performed a multi level lumbar fusion and has followed my progress with expertise. He cares about his patients and wants the best possible outcome! Colorado Springs Orthopedics Group is a great clinic and I couldnt be happier with the compassion they showed. From his nurse Karen down to Brook, a new MSA, the pain management as well as encouragement couldnt be better. Thank you Dr Bee, Jim T

Dr Bee is an Amazing Doctor! Back in 2015 I had had two neck surgeries and now I am having lower back and trouble in my leg. I just went back to Dr Bee and he is handling the lower back and referring me to a doctor for my muscle in my leg. I trust him and he explains everything to you. I would recommend him in a heart beat. And his nurse Karen is Amazing also- If ever you need to talk to anyone if you are having surgery, please ask Karen for my phone number-

Dr. Bee fixed my back, a challenging and complicated feat. The nerve pain is gone and I feel better than I have in a decade. I couldn't be more pleased.

Referred to Dr. Bee by my physician. After a thorough exam and x-rays he diagnosed that I had a problems with my rotator cuff. He then referred me to Falcon Therapy, where I received excellent treatment. After therapy I am now pain free. Thank you and your staff!

Dr. Bee provided excellent pre-op, op and post-op care. I was hesitant on pursuing neck surgery. He did not push me one way or the other but provided the facts and allowed me the time to make my decision. After my surgery, I kicked myself for not having done it sooner. Dr. Bee and his team are professional, respectful and are the best at what they do. Thank you!

Great surgeon. My back was really bad and asked Dr. Bee to give me my life back. He did that and more. Yes, surgery was hard and recovery was exhausting. But after 6 months, no pain in my back and I can do all the things that I was not able to do for a couple of years. Thank you Dr. Bee! Now, I have to say maybe not the best bedside manner, but he has an exceptional RN that covers all he may of not mentioned. Karen is the best! available by phone at all times. They make the perfect Team.
