Patient Comments (9)
Westminster, CO |
During and immediately after surgery, Dr. Jatana is very caring and attentive. However, he becomes very disinterested after the first post-surgery check, even though he requires that you follow up with him for at least 2+years. I was also very disappointed in 2016 when I was told with no prior notice that I would need to find another doctor to work with since Dr. Jatana was no longer available. Yet it appears he is practicing again but no notice to previous patients was given as far as I know.
Dr. Jatana has been out on emergent medical leave since October of 2016, at that time all of his patients were notified via mail and care was re-directed if appropriate. Dr. Jatana is now recovered and planning on returning to practice in October of 2017.

Absolutely the BEST Spine Surgeon there is. Dr. Jatana had to perform surgery on C4-7 on my neck, as the result of a very serious car accident, in which I was rear ended twice very hard by two separate cars, within about a minute of each other. He did a fabulous job, and I highly recommended him, for any spine issues you may have.

Just don't get old. After a 15 year, four procedure relationship my wife can't get an appointment after telling them we were under Medicare as her primary insurer and Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield as secondary. Good work, nice guy.
Please understand appointment availability for your wife was not personal. Dr. Jatana has been out on emergent medical leave since October of 2016, at that time all of his patients were notified via mail and care was re-directed if appropriate. Dr. Jatana is now recovered and planning on returning to practice in October of 2017.

Dr. Jatana is a wonderful surgeon and his positive attitude helped make my recovery easier. I recommend him to anyone facing the same decision I had to make. This surgery changed my life. You don't have to live in pain. You do have options.

Pain in my right arm and neck made it impossible for me to stand, drive or fly. I did my research and selected Dr. Jatana because of his comforting bedside manner, education, reputation and cervical spine experience. I had 2 separate surgeries requiring a 5-day hospital stay. Dr. Jatana visited me every day which was very comforting. I could not have had better treatment, everyone was so professional and that gave me confidence. I have had better results and more of my life back than I hoped.

After my initial consultation with Dr. Jatana I was handed off to his PA. I had surgery and never saw Dr. Jatana again. I specifically made an appointment with the Dr., confirmed that it was with him by phone and again when I arrived and yet never saw him. My surgery was not successful and I ultimately had surgery with another surgeon. I would have to call and leave numerous messages before anyone would call me back. It took days to get a response. I would never recommend this office or doctor.

I've known Dr. Jatana as both a colleague and patient. He is highly knowledgeable and skilled. His bedside manner, as well as his Physician Assistants, excels compared to that of many of his peers.
