I was referred to Dr. Hovland a few years ago by my Ophthalmologist. He was concerned about a growth in my eye that might be cancerous. Dr. Hovland was very professional. His bedside manners are superb. Fortunately for me it was not cancer, but needs to be watched. So I have an annual visit with him and could not be more pleased. My most recent visit occurred a few months ago. Near the end of my examination, I mentioned that I had recently under gone cataract surgery. He then proceeded to to take a look at that not required for my visit but out of concern for me as a patient. He assured me the surgery had been done very well. Every time I go to the office the staff is professional and friendly. I never wait long. This is one of the most well run medical offices I have ever experienced.

I would not recommend Dr Hovland or Colorado Retina Associates to anyone. Went in with vision came out blind. Surgery was a hack job came out with a hole in the cornea. There are better retina specialist out there. Their is a reason for 3.8 rating, a good rating is 4.8 to 5.0 is good. The doctor who saved my right eye had a 4.8 and she doesn’t work for Colorado retina associates.

Dr Hovland, MD PhD, inspires confidence! He is an affable, engaging doctor with broad expertise. He readily refers patients to other doctors within Colorado Retina Assoc. if he feels another doctor is more qualified for treatment of a particular concern.
