About Me

Foot pain for more than a few days is not usual. If your feet are down, so are you. Dr. Mechanik believes that early intervention for a patient's foot and ankle condition, is better than letting the condition go until you have too much pain and ...

Outstanding bedside manner, kind, friendly, and compassionate. He is very personable and is committed to making you feel better. He is also just genuinely a good human being. I would recommend him to anyone with any foot related issues. He took care of my chronic, painful ingrown toenails and I feel like my quality of life has improved.

I have been a patient of Dr. Mechanik for over 3 years. He is wonderful to work with. I had a torn plantar fascia and her repaired it with a stem cell patch. My foot has never felt better! The office staff is so nice!

INCREDIBLE DOCTOR!! Dr. Mechanik is the best doctor I have ever seen. He was truly interested in getting to know me and about my condition. I had been to 5 other foot specialist before him. He immediately knew what I had, which none of the other doctors even mentioned. After three years in pain, he fixed me. He is the smartest and kindest doctor I have ever had. Hands down Best Foot and Ankle Doc in Colorado and the USA. If you have a foot or ankle problem, Dr. Mechanik is who you need!

Good doctor but needs to explain details about surgery. My foot and ankle were in pain for over 6 months. Went to see another doctor and realized that the surgery was not done properly. Had another surgery and now I feel great. The lady at front desk over charged twice. I feel it's all about the money not the quality. She seamed fake friendly. I felt uncomfortable around her. I'm surprised they have that many 5 stars. Back in the day doctors took pride in thier profession. Done early in 2017.

Satisfaction survey....I'll start out by saying this team is not only proficient in patient care but by far the most caring medical staff my family has ever encountered. No one wishes that they need the care of a podiatric surgeon but if you have issues with your feet....this is the team you want.

Dr. Mechanik was very engaged and spent a lot of time talking about my options. I went thinking (as I was told by 3 other doctors) that I needed surgery. We talked about less aggressive options (i.e. orthotics) as a first approach rather than surgery. I very much appreciated this approach. He even jury rigged a temporary "orthotic" that has been working WONDERS and can't wait for the permanent inserts. Dr. Mechanik really puts his patients FIRST!!!

Dr Mechanik is excellent! I have been plagued with ingrown toe nails since I was a teenager, previous attempts by other Dr’s left me with ragged nails and painful regrowths. Dr Mechanik has removed two badly ingrown nails with little pain and fast recovery. Previous removals had been painful and messy, not so here. Don’t put of getting those annoying painful ingrown removed once and for all!

I've gotten such great care. My foot surgery went exceptionally well; Dr. Mechanik knew exactly how to repair my foot. He was very knowlegable and confident about the procedure that needed to be done. He and his staff are so compassionate and caring. They pay attention to every detail, explaining what to expect post-op, pain management and home care instructions. The experience was amazing.

Hands down (or feet down!) the best doctor I think I've ever seen. He truly listens and is always in a great mood. He's patient with you and is always cheery! He clearly knows what he's talking about and never rushed into anything. He is willing to go the extra mile for this patients and I really cannot say enough nice things about him. Seriously, he's your guy.

I'm from Pennsylvania and traveled to area ending up with a ingrown toenail. Same day appointment. I experienced excellent staff and care. Highly unlikely that I would need their services again, but they treated me like I was a regular customer. Excellent service. Thank you

Dr. Mechanik had a solution for severe clubfeet. My son had the surgery and even within 4 weeks the results are stunning. He's walking faster, and with better gait, and he can stand at highschool events for hours without getting tired or feeling pain. He's got some training to do to get all the benefits, but Dr. Mechanik did a fantastic job and used amazing technology to improve my son's day to day life.

Everyone was so nice. The doctor answered all my questions. He had a plan and did not have to run a lot of tests or do X-rays. Very nice and honest group! Glad I found them

I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Mechanik! I have a very complicated medical history and diagnoses, which includes a diagnosis of CRPS. Although it's rare, he knew what it was and how to handle it in conjunction with what I was seeing him for. He never made me feel rushed or like I couldn't ask a question. He's one of the most approachable doctors I've ever seen. He was careful to make sure I had a good treatment plan going forward. He even called me on the weekend to make sure I was ok!
