Patient Comments (9)
Westminster, CO |
I/we are so impressed with the professionalism and compassion of this practice! Dr. Sorensen is an up-front doctor who seems to fully comprehend the challenges patients can face while trying to manage their pain issues. Dr. Sorensen encourages patients to establish their own personal, reasonable goals by suggesting treatment options as well as a holistic approach to all forms and levels of treatment. We are fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Sorensen!

Dr. Sorensen is caring, funny, and efficient. I get long-lasting relief from the injections and would highly recommend.

My first visit with Sorenson seemed promising, I thought I was on my way to recovery. Not true. He will just ignore you until you fade away. Will NOT authorize prescription minor non-narcotic refills. Staff was awful, NEVER returns calls. I never got anywhere. I am now being treated fairly well. He chooses who he wants to treat and who he will treat like garbage. If you don't jump at the chance to get spine injections, he throws in the towel & disregards the opinions/diagnosis of colleagues.

Excellent bedside manner, listens, and explains procedures thoroughly. Empathetic. Highly recommend.

Bad experience. Doctor had big plans for treating me then he just left me hanging. I did what was required from me as patient. Then poof, no more care. Not even refills. I wasn't even taking narcotics. He is not at all caring. Of course I would never go back to him. Maybe I would say it's a roll of the dice with this one.

Excellent care for my chronic back pain. Listens very well and gets to the root of the problem.
in Denver, CO |
Very poor communication. Did not follow through with treatment at all. Shallow
in Arvada, CO |
Dr Sorensen and his staff were able to quickly relieve me from sever back pain and with a joke along the way. Would absolutely recommend him to friends!
