Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Honest, communicative, compassionate
After seeking multiple opinions across several ortho and neuro practices, and having a medical advocate review each opinion and all imaging, I went with Dr. Markey not only because my advocate aligned with his plan of treatment but also because Dr. Markey and Sabrina Reed treated me with compassion and communicated with me honestly and with transparency. Their office also communicates regularly and returns phone calls and emails in a timely manner. I appreciate them all.

He saved me...Again!
In 2004, Dr. Markey saved my physical life after a nearly fatal aneurysm and stroke; in April 2022, he saved my emotional life by getting rid of my searing migraines. I had trigeminal neuralgia; I dealt with the horrific pain my entire life, going from specialist to specialist trying to figure out what was wrong. I nearly died chasing down a cause for these terrible 'suicide' headaches. Dr. Markey made the diagnosis, performed the miraculous surgery, and I now am nearly headache free. He is my hero. Not only is he a skilled surgeon, he is an honest, kind man.

In 2014 my L3/4 disk partially ruptured resulting in pressure in nerves to my medial left leg muscles and skin. Dr. Markey successfully repaired this rupture with minimally invasive surgery. However there was no post-operative care. Prescribed pain medications were completely ineffective resulting in continuous pain, no, I mean no sleep and significant psychotropic side effects. Shortly afterwards I became severely dehydrated and developed bilateral kidney stones requiring three medical procedures. My left medial leg nerves remain partially damaged although with time and therapy I was able to again walk, ski and bike. My L3/4 vertebrae seems fine. So an adequate surgeon and an unconcerned doctor is my experience.

I changed over to Dr. Markey after three unsuccessful surgeries on my neck. He spends time with his patients and after two more surgeries the last one was successful and only pain I have is muscle tightness which is will be discussing with him next week. Highly recommend him.

I met with Dr. Markey for a consultation and he was one of the nicest physicians I have ever met. He answered all of my questions and really took time in explaining everything to me in great detail. I never feel rushed or pressured. I felt he was very caring and understanding and gave me his best option of how to proceed. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing help with a brain tumor.

I have a complicated set of circumstances and have had more than one surgery in the past 2 years with Dr. Markey. Whether in the office, on the phone or at the hospital, Dr. Markey has been not just competent but also kind, respectful, caring and patient. He has never rushed my questions, never rushed a decision and been thorough in explaining choices and risks to me. More than anything else, Dr. Markey and his team have been my relentless advocates when I needed that. That is rare and special.

I have struggled with lower back pain for years. It had reached the point that it was difficult for me to walk any distance. I was terrified of having surgery, and constantly looking for the right surgeon for me. Thankfully, a friend gave me Dr. Sean Markey's name. I had lumber decompression surgery four weeks ago. Dr. Markey was kind, caring and, explained what needed to be done to correct my problem. I am happy to say I would highly Dr. Markey to anyone who is considering surgery!

Dr. Markey and his team are outstanding. Diagnosis and explanation of my medical issues were exceptionally well done, and he made sure I had a thorough understanding of the procedures and recovery. One week post-op I feel better than I have in months. Dr. Markey cares about his patients and I definitely feel he and his team went above and beyond to correct my significant spine issues. I am extremely grateful for his expert care and skill. Thanks!!!!

Dr. Markey is an awesome surgeon! From my first visit to him he was very upfront and answered all of my questions, and my surgery was scheduled quickly. I had a minor complication after the surgery (no one's fault, my body rejected the sutures he used). His staff got me into the office quickly when I called concerned and the problem was taken care of within a couple of days. Every follow up I had with him he took the time to listen to any questions I had and answer them thoroughly.

I saw Dr. Markey in 2015, and he was awesome, totally upfront with me telling me I would never have to have a multi-level Fusion. I saw him again this year with an update MRI and only after his nurse spent 3o mins with me, (By the way) never introducing herself (RUDE)!!!! I am now being told I need a multi-level fusion and would have to take of work for 6-12months, I just started this job, is he going to by my bills. Plus I have left messages for his nurse to call me back and I have yet to hear

I was diagnosed in June 2009 with a brain tumor. I was living in San Diego, California at the time and was 15 years old. I was treated at Rady Children’s Hospital with three brain surgeries. I moved to Colorado a few years ago, and a year ago, I had my fourth brain surgery to repair my VP Shunt by Dr. Markey. He is a very patient and understanding doctor, and explains everything he will do before, during, and after the surgery to help the patient. Thank you Doctor Markey! Recommended to all!

Excellent surgeon/Neurology Doctor. I have a brain tumor, was diagnosed in 2009, while still living in California. I had three brain surgeries in California: Diagnosis, partial tumor resection, then VP Shunt placement. Then in 2016, I had a doctor appointment with Doctor Markey to check on my yearly MRI review. He noticed my VP shunt was draining all of the fluid from my brain, and did a surgery to replace my shunt. Excellent and caring doctor/surgeon! Recommended to all who need this surgery!
