While Dr. Failinger is competent and is friendly when you see him, the processes to schedule appointments is painful each time. I have been receiving orthovisc injections in my knee every six months for chondromalacia for 20 years. When I started working in Denver 2 years ago, I started going to Dr. Failinger for these injections. After having issues scheduling this time, I asked that he call me which he never did.

He is very patient-centric. Takes his time until you are comfortable with the situation.His surgical skills are awesome. He was able to make incisions in a tattooed area without cutting the ink. I had trouble with the surgical scheduling, it took almost four weeks to accomplish. Along with the typical wait times (though I do purposely schedule at the end of the day - so that should be an expectation) of over 45 minutes... are the only negatives.
in Broomfield, CO |
I came in with an MRI done (shoulder). Assistant said we won't need an xray and let the Dr. know I had MRI results. Made me do xray anyways. Dr. was surprised I had MRI. His assistant loaded it on the computer. Never looked at xrays, so I assume that was to pad the bill? After looking at the MRI says there is nothing wrong even though I can't lift my arm and am in severe pain. Uses a cancer analogy to say I dunno what's wrong. Then suggests blood work and cortisone. Was rude and not helpful.
