Dr. Bazaz is the best orthopedic surgeon that I’ve ever met. He was kind and thoroughly explained the knee surgeries that he’s done for me. I have him on speed dial if ever I blow out my knee again, which is likely soon.

Dr. Bazaz is one-of-a-kind. You'll never find a more knowledgeable, skilled, personable, caring doc on the planet. I send all my friends and family to him. He's the go-to surgeon for all our work staff. He's the best!

Way to cocky and barely spent any time. There are many orthopedics surgeons in Denver with his skills and more compassion.

Steer clear of Western Orthopedics, pretentiousness from the moment you walk in the door and incompetency reigns specifically in the billing and the x-ray departments. They do not care if you have insurance coverage or not, they will not bill your insurance but will charge you outrageous charges and then not answer the phone when you try to straighten it out.

Dr. Bazaz is awesome! My husband went to him three years ago and had a great experience so I decided to see him for a shoulder injury. Dr. Bazaz listened to me, completed a thorough assessment, did an x-ray, made a diagnosis, educated, and then included me on planning of treatment options. I felt like he was very knowledgeable and really cares for his patients. Highly recommend!

What a terrific experience all-around. Minimal wait time, his office was able to get me in for an MRI in under and hour and surgery just a couple weeks later, Dr. Bazar himself was professional, respectful, and engaging. I was well cared for during surgery too. Highly recommend this practice and Dr. Bazaz in general.

I wish i could put more than 5 stars but 5 will have to do. Dr. Bazaz was kind, hilarious and attentive. From the front of office staff greeting me immediately to Lidia, who scheduled my surgery, they were all All-Stars. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Bazaz and his entire practice. They make you feel like family and not a piece of meet being quickly served.

Dr. Bazaz was highly recommended to me for a shoulder issue I have been having. Amazing experience, I felt like he genuinely cared about my pain and figuring out what was wrong with my shoulder. He didn't rush through an exam, jump on the surgery route to remove a plate in my collarbone. I left very confident that I was on the right track and we would find a way to ease my pain. Wonderful, wonderful doctor--glad I spoke to the right person and got her recommendation, she was right.

Dr. Bazaz provided the worst experience I've ever had. He had poor bedside manner, refused to listen (saying let him be the expert in his field, and me be the expert in mine), misdiagnosed me causing me to have an upcoming surgery, and insulted me. He said my knee was a dermatology issue asking if I would go see a face surgeon for a pimple. I now have to have knee surgery for a hypermobile/dislocated patella that could have been treated with PT if he would've diagnosed me correctly.

Dr Bazaz is an amazing Dr and takes care of you well. He is like having an old friend taking care of you after you first meet him. He did a great job on my knee and I have not had any problems with it after surgery.

Polite and professional. Really listened and cared. Surgery went well. Follow up visits excellent. Hope I never need surgery again but if I did I would go to him.

He was excellent. Great bed side manners and treated my daughter very well with her knee surgery. He explained everything so well and it was fun having him take a pen and draw on her knee what he was going to do. Very pleasant man. I would recommend him to anyone. The follow up went well too.
