Patient Comments (6)
in Greenwood Village, CO |
Broke my ankle and Dr. Metzl was very professional. He operated the next and was very caring and courteous. I would recommend him to anyone.
in Columbia SC |
He is a great doctor. He is very caring and thoughtful. He is also the team doctor for the Broncos, but he treated me like I was a VIP patient.
in Denver, CO |
AVOID, in spite of what your insurance company says. The receptionist, Taylor, thinks she is a doctor and freely tells you if she will (or will not) ask the doctor based on her opinion. Dr. Metzl never let me finish a question before going off on a condescending rant about something completely inapplicable. His "diagnosis" consisted of two minutes of vague circle gestures on the X-ray before saying I was good to go. I got a second opinion; she found the break immediately.
in Greenwood Village, CO |
He is a very caring Doctor. He will spend as much time as you need to answer any and all questions as well as explaining details about your injury/pain/ankle thoroughly. Highly recommend him.
in Denver, CO |
The entire experience at the Steadman Hawkins Clinic was great. The front desk was friendly and acknowledged me right when I walked in the door. The doctor was smiling and friendly. He didn't make me feel stupid when i asked questions about my foot. I did have to wait to be seen for a while but that is expected at such a great clinic.
in Colorado |
Went to clinic based on recommendation PCP, the experience was abhorrent. The front office staff was rude, dismissive and on their cell phones. Wait time was excessive I actually saw an intern or resident first (unclear) and then Dr. Metzl who explained that I had a 3rd degree sprain on my ankle which is the worst possible sprain of an ankle. The x-ray technician did not put on the lead apron, she explained that I receive more radiation from flying in an airplane and that I shouldn?t worry.
