Castle Pines, CO |
Dr. Resig came to my room at Sky Ridge Medical Center at 5:45 am, roughly ten hours after I had been admitted with a fractured hip. He explained that the surgical schedule for the day was heavy and that I would be the last surgery at 6:00 pm. Both times, he was cheerful and enthusiastic about the surgery's outcome, which he explained in detail. I went home the following day and have had 2 appointments since. He is thorough, dedicated, and exceptionally competent, a surgeon to recommend.
Parker, CO |
Had a fairly complicated fusing (at least in my mind) of 3 bones in my foot. Lead up to surgery, the surgery and recovery have been good. All questions have been answered as well as the prognosis going forward. Great office, surgeon and support staff.

Dr. Resig and his PA were very professional and informative about my foot condition and what options I had to alleviate the problem. My surgery was scheduled at the Hampden Surgery Center in Denver. Dr. Resig saw me before surgery and explained what procedures he was going to use. After the surgery he talked to my wife when I was in recovery. Dr. Resig and his PA were excellent in explaining things and I would recommend him to anyone thinking about foot surgery.

I went in for a review of x rays from a broken foot. It has been a week, I am walking without pain, and around my apartment without a boot at night. He said I had an extreme issue that can only be resolved with surgery. I asked for a second set of x rays to see if the damage was still showing up the same as the first x rays. He dismissed me and informed me surgery is the only option. Today after waiting 2 hours after my surgery time. I canceled and got a second opinion. Surgery not needed!

Foot pain

I went to Dr. Resig for a second opinion. I had MRI in hand and wanted his expertise. His MA and then his PA both asked for the MRI report and I said I really wanted the Dr. to look at the MRI and tell me what he sees. They said that they can get the report. Finally the Dr comes in. He doesn't do an exam nor does he look at the MRI while in the room with me. He recommends orthotics which I have already tried twice before. I'm sure my insurance will be charged for an exam.

Wasn't sure after reading reviews if I wanted to have Dr resig perform peroneal tendon surgery. However, decided to go with dr resig after consultation. He is slightly arrogant, but very informative and he did a great job with surgery, so can deal with arrogant. Vangie, Dr Resigs assistant is outstanding! She contacted me within 10 minutes of every call, email I sent her! She was kind and helpful. Loved her! I would certainly recommend Dr Resig. Only had to wait a long time for appt once so not

He really doesn't seem to care. Very dismissive. Do not trust him to accurately assess any injury
Went in to have a bone spur and a toe joint fixed. Was told the the surgery went well but I have more pain now than before the surgery. Was told the last time that I had another spur on the toe. It just appeared in one month??? They didn't see it on the initial X-ray??? Not happy at all!
Aurora, CO |
I've been a patient of Dr. Resig's for 2 years, he's replaced a couple joints and done minor surgery on my knee. He seems capable, smart and pleasant but he doesn't spend enough time with you to explain conditions, side effects or treatments. I have often left his office feeling as if my pain and condition was make believe. He doesn't seem concerned when the patient is suffering, it's always try p/t and come back in a month.
