    Very rude, very sarcastic. Worst experience with a Doctor I have ever had. Would not recommend.

    I found Dr. Dolan to be dismissive, has poor eye contact, didn't seem to want to listen to what I had to say and didn't even tell me what the next steps were when he was finished.

    Dr Dolan took excellent care of me when I was in the hospital. He has a tremendous bed side manner as well. Thank you Dr Dolan.

    Great doctor. Was very helpful.

    The first time I saw Dolan he was ok, but he was a little too jokey and fun, and I got the sense he didn't listen to everything I had to say based on the questions he asked after I told him my symptoms. After many tests and during my second actual appt with him, he changed his tune: he was dismissive and rude and told me that nobody ever dies from pain. I will never go to see this man again; I am returning to my previous wonderful dr from the town I lived in previously.

    Dr. Dolan is outstanding! He has a great manner about his work. Everything went just as he explained. His temperament and confidence eased my feelings. The lady who came to pick me up was so impressed that she said she will only have her procedure done by Dr. Dolan. I highly recommend him to everyone.

    Dolan does not take the time to talk over and explain things to patients. He pushes more and more drugs without weighing options.

    I found Dr. Dolan to be very kind and gentle. He actually LISTENED to me and my concerns, and thoroughly and patiently answered my questions. He also has a sense of humor, which I very much appreciate.
    Thank you for leaving a review. We are happy to hear that your concerns were address and taken into consideration. Thank you for choosing Gastroenterology of the Rockies.

    I recently received a colonoscopy from Dr. Dolan. I was asked to signed a consent form seconds before I was put under. I felt that he could have provided me with the form and information before getting to the procedure room. I did not feel I had the proper time (or my glasses) to understand what I was asked to sign. This signing under duress situation could be avoided, and I did report this to his staff. No action has been taken as my wife just experienced the same treatment.
