    Excellent surgeon and nice bedside manner. Understands the pathology at Hand. The convenience of the office and surgery center is same place was a bonus.
    in Denver, CO |
    Disorganized. Systems not working. Running late. Unsure of diagnosis so they sent me to get an MRI and then forced me to come back to tell me the result of the MRI. This is a ridiculous policy. It is a simple diagnosis - it's either broken or not and does NOT require me to drive to their office again to have someone tell me broken or not broken. I have already been to the office 2 times. A simple phone call would suffice. But that would eliminate their ability to charge for another office visit!
