The staffs are friendly the provider is very friendly. My father has been a patient for 5 years now. The last 2 years is the worst I have experienced with Colorado retina. I can never get a message to my provider. When I call I go through a call center that does not check their voicemails or return calls I have held on the phone for over 30 min just to reschedule my appointment. Not only that they schedule to the wrong facility before. My appointment was at 12:10 and we have waited approximately an hour just to be seen. It’s frustrating that we have to wait that long. I understand at times it may occur but it is every appointment we wait over 30 min just to see the provider for a 10 min eye injection sometimes it does not take that long. I use to love Colorado retina they use to be efficient. For the last 2 years it’s had got worse. I too work for a specialty clinic and I understand the wait but when it’s every appointment we have it’s ridiculous and we don’t come that often.

Extremely satisfied visit concerning my posterior vitreous detachment. Dr Courtney and his staff are extremely efficient, friendly, relaxing and professional. Dr. Courtney thoroughly explained what he was doing, what he found, and what to expect. He listened and answered all my questions and concerns. You only have one pair of eyes - and i am grateful to have Dr. Courtney and Colorado Retina taking care of mine!

Am so thankful for Dr. Courtney! I had multiple retinal tears that he repaired and also, later, had a retinal detachment that he also corrected. I'm back to seeing 20/20 again and couldn't be happier! His office staff have always been so helpful and he takes as much time as you need to understand your issues. Highly recommend Dr. Courtney!!

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.
