Patient Comments (7)
I got in to see the Dr in less than a week. I was able to have my needed surgery the very next day. dr Gessner explains and listens in a very caring manner. I have had uneventful follow up visits and would, absolutely, recommend him.

I went to a long period of time without insurance. I am a senior and when I did get insurance many providers would not treat older patients with medicare supplemental etc. and the micro managing of my care really limited my access. Dr. Gessner has been fair with me, he has got me moving again and is giving me the care I need which has resulted in me getting more active again. I have problems with neuropothy and anthritis in my feet. His staff are always very helpful and positive.

Dr Gessner nor staff advised me I would need a follow up visit to my procedure. I was given a patient handout with two items underlined. No follow up was suggested. When trying to inquire about an issue I was sternly told I should have scheduled the follow up visit. This was new info as it was not on the hand out. The address on the hand is wrong. Dr. Gessner was fine but his support front desk is indifferent to rude. The poorest front office experience I have ever had and I am 7

Dr. Gessner was great! He was professional but at the same time spoke to my 4 year old in a way that she understood what was going on. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Excellent care all around. Very Knowledgable and friendly. Got me in the same day I sprained my ankle and started treatment immediately.
in Colorado Springs, CO |
I was so grateful that his staff immediately verified my insurance information to ensure I was accepted there and got me an appointment needed the very same morning. Dr. Gessner's professionalism along with his staff was impressive. Personally, I was happy he was a former runner and knows the positive effects of running and the value it brings to life so I didn't have to hear 'stop running'. Instead, he listened very attentively and tended to my specific needs. So very grateful!
