I saw Dr. Friermood to advise me on a pain issue with my lower back. I have a history of injuries and operations to my back right hip and both feet. I had a knee replacement scheduled and wanted to know whether the knee replacement should resolve my lower back pain. After taking new x rays of my back and hips Dr. Friarmood recommended trying to rehabilitate the muscles around the lower back and postponing the knee surgery until after we saw how the physical therapy worked.

Great dr. Was pretty scared going in but felt at ease after meeting with him

I'm on vacation in Colorado and I broke my foot. Urgent care took X-rays and provided a boot but I needed to see an orthopedic doc. Called Panorama and they got me in to see Dr. Friermood the next day. Dr. Friermood was very thorough, explained everything very well and made sure all my questions were answered. If I ever need an orthopedic doc in the future when I come back to Highlands Ranch I will be calling Dr. Friermood.

Very thorough explaining my condition. Very knowledgable. Dr. Friermood does not do surgery. He is president of Panorama and responsible for building Ortho Colorado Hospital. He has moved Panorama from 5 doctors to 36 doctors. He is a brilliant business doctor and made Panorama a leading practice in Colorado. To give him one star is absurd.
