    Patient Comments (1)
    in Golden, co |
    The doctor saw me for all of 5 minutes, looked up my nose (for about 2 seconds). The instrument he used hit the inside of my nose which hurt for the rest of the day. His advice to use a nasal rinse gave me the worst headaches. Then his office is demanding absurd amounts of money from me for a horrible experience. Do NOT go to this doctor.
