Patient Comments (5)
in Denver, CO |
He did an endoscopy where he knicked my throat. The pain in recovering has been excruciating. He also wrote the wrong dosage amount for my gargle prescription. We had to call his office to ask for pain meds. These should have been offered after the procedure considering the problems he has caused me. He couldn't get out of there fast enough. Not available to answer our questions fully. To me, woefully underprepared. Also, no phone calls from him or his office to inquire on my progress.

Dr. Linkow has been my primary doctor since 1989. I can not say enough wonderful things about this dedicated doctor. He has provided me medical care at all hours and at different time zones (Brazil, Argentina, Mexico). I have so much respect for him that words can not express. No matter how busy he is, he always find room to squeeze me in. He takes his time with you and listens. Thank you Dr. Linkow.

The best experience is with short waiting line, on time appointments and, especially, Dr. Linkow's medical assistant Debbie. Debbie is very responsive, extremely friendly and helpful.
