Patient Comments (12)
Aurora, CO |
Actual appointment with MD and PA was good. However... Before, during, & after the appointment the office reported my DOB incorrect. It took over 3 months for follow up with labs only after I called them 2x. There was a lack of communication between the PA, MD, & MA. My health history was entered incorrectly on EPIC. I decided not to have one test performed which was communicated to the team; I got a call 3 months later to see what the result of the test was (i.e. the test I didn't have done)

Excellent doctor! Cares about patients needs, visits never feel rushed and very friendly staff. Make sure to plan ahead when scheduling, appointments are usually filled a couple months out (probably because she is such a great Doctor).
Littleton, CO |
This review is not actually for Dr. Long. I haven't seen her yet because the staff is incompetent, rude, not friendly. They don't return calls, the "New Patient Coordinator" is never available & for each day that they don't return your call, your appt. gets pushed back by at least 1-2 weeks - a very frustrating experience. Maybe if the staff was easier to work with, she'd have more stars in her reviews. I'm in the medical care field & if we treated our patients like this, we wouldn't have any!
in Parker, CO |
She takes the time to listen to what you have to say and doesn't dismiss it as nonsense.
in Colorado Springs, CO |
These doctors at this office are not honest and guess on your health Instead of listening to the facts
in Aurora, CO |
I LOVE Dr. Long! She's taken ample time in appointments to answer all questions and make sure I am comfortable with the course of treatment. She has excellent "bedside" skills as do the nurses in her office. I will say the appointment process can be a frustration and I almost didn't go to her because of it. That would have been a big mistake as Dr. Long delivers excellent patient care. Onsite flabotomy is a real convenience as well.

I love Dr. Long. I just saw her for the first time, and I was dreading it. I knew my numbers were horrible. She put me at ease and gave me the confidence I needed to make changes and get back on track. I left with an Ocean of Hope. Great Staff as well, from start to finish. I would give her more than 5 stars if I could.
in Centennial, CO |
I trust Dr. Long's knowledge of medicine. I could always go to her for all the answers and advice. Sometime the office staff has new people, but you need to work with them. I said I had to move and not having her for my doctor any more would be what I would miss most of all.
in Parker, CO |
Office personnel were difficult, unhelpful, not very pleasant and ultimately failed to even provide a reasonable time for an appointment after demanding. I never actually got to meet with the doctor because the staff was too difficult to work with.
in Centennial, CO |
Friendly office and staff, like that they have there own phlebotomist. Dr. Long is very friendly and knowledgeable.
in Elbert, CO |
Nurse very difficult to work with. Would rather waste doctors time and mine than be efficient with her time.
in Aurora |
I saw Dr Long in September. I had just started radiation therapy and was advised to follow up with an endocrinologist for 2 years. They did several blood tests and I was told they would be in touch within a week. Eight passed I heard nothing so I called them. 3 days later they finally got back to me. Told me one of my levels were off, asked what dose I took of my mess. Information that was right there. Said they would tell the Dr and get back to me. It's Dec. and I NEVER did hear anything!
