Patient Comments (1)
in Aurora, CO |
I would not recommend this doctor. I was referred to Dr. Denton due to an ER visit only to be turned down for any help. His associate told me this was due to the terminology the radiologist used in his report but I think it was because he didn't accept BCBS insurance. I am left in the same position I was in when I went to the ER in pain from a cyst.
