What People Say About Dr. Steven Mohnssen, MD

Dr. Mohnssen was my pulmonologist while I was being treated for COVID-19 at UC Health Memorial North Hospital. Even while I was in a "Covid Brain Fog" he took the time to explain ventilators, how they worked, how Colorado is using them differently than NYC. He presented options and guidance. I appreciate that he's an expert and I could tell by his manner that I could trust his judgement. His treatment plan kept me off a ventilator and saved my life. I cannot thank him enough. Highly recommended. 10 stars.

I've had 2 appts with Dr. Mohnssen for long term low oxygen saturation. (Taken off another review as it fits perfectly) "Right off the bat he seemed more interested in his laptop than me, as a patient. It didn't take long to realize he wasn't listening to my answers to the questions asked by him because he would ask the same questions within seconds. He made no eye contact." His reasoning for my lack of oxygen sat is that I'm fat and need to lose weight. My diagnosis of Lipedema is not real according to him, which makes fatloss nearly impossible. I will not continue to see Dr. Mohnssen, I need someone that cares about me, my problem and not refer me to someone else that can for sure cure my fat legs. He needs to retire or his staff needs to assign him patients that have problems that he specializes in, and not something he has no interest in doing.

I had several appts with Mohnssen for long term sleep problems. Right off the bat he seemed more interested in his laptop than me, as a patient. It didn't take long to realize he wasn't listening to my answers to the questions asked by him because he would ask the same questions within seconds. He made no eye contact. Save your valuable time and money and seek help for your sleep issues elsewhere. I found a caring doctor immediately and am beginning to relearn how to sleep again. Mohhnssen, at his age, needs to retire his stethoscope and take a daily afternoon nap in his recliner.

I saw Dr Mohnssen because I had trouble sleeping all night for over 2 years. He diagnosed me with RLS and prescribed a medicine for that. It has been a month and I am doing great..sleeping 6 out of 7 nights a week. Never even knew RLS existed. I am so grateful. There is not like a good nights sleep. Please thank him for me.

Dr. Mohnssen has seen me several times, initially looking for answers for a cough. He patiently listened and took time to answer my questions. He is professional yet very kind with a sly sense of humor which lightened my visits. Staff is professional and helpful as well.

I saw Dr. Mohnssen to confirm a diagnosis of bronchiectasis. My level of anxiety was fairly high because of what I'd read online about the disease. Because of professionalism and compassion of Dr. Mohnssen and his staff, I left the appointment feeling much better about my diagnosis. He spent 45 minutes with my husband and me and answered every one of our questions. At the end of the appointment he asked if we had any other questions. I highly recommend his to anyone coping with a lung disease.
