    in Arvada, CO |
    My experience with Dr. Courtney was wonderful in every way. I was diagnosed with a macular hole in the retina of both my right and left eye. Following 2 retina surgeries, I can now see clearly again with the assistance of my two year old glasses. I can't thank Dr. Courtney enough for the return of my vision.

    Dr. Courtney listens and answers questions thoroughly. He's professional, kind, and an excellent surgeon. Highly recommended.
