I felt like they really cared

After having a sudden onset of symptoms a year ago, I was referred by my P.A. to Spine Colorado for a slipped disc in my neck. I was able to get an appointment within a reasonable amount of time and was seen by Dr. Santos. I had been stressed about my appointment for some time before I went in because I was afraid they would see that I mentioned Fibromyalgia and not want to investigate any further as I have had happen in the past months by some other specialists but Dr. Santos was straightforward, he went over my MRI with me and felt after examination and discussion that I should be referred to a surgeon on staff for consultation and they have me scheduled for the very next week so there's no waiting for several months as I had originally expected. I'm very grateful for all of my experiences with Mercy staff from every branch, they have done a lot for me in a much quicker amount of time than I have experienced with any medical system from any other place I've lived.

Exceptional service and care!!

I can't thank the nurses at the center enough. All of them treated me with care and respect. From the prep nurse, who did an outstanding job starting my IV, to the surgery nurse who kept me calm while preparing for the procedure, to the recovery nurse who helped me wake up, made sure that I was comfortable and answered all of the questions my wife and I had about recovery at home. The anesthesiologist took extra time to understand my history and made the process of the surgery and recovery, the easiest I have ever experienced. Dr Lawton, Ann Theine and the surgical team worked their magic on my elbow and I feel so much better now. Thank You Everyone!!

1st Surgery, Bilateral Micro Discectomy 100% Successful

When I arrived at the center for my surgery I was treated very well and made very comfortable, any questions I had were answered and did not have to ask many since everything was being explained to me as I was being prepped for my procedure. I was dressed and blood was drawn, vitals were taken with a quick exam all at a very calm and at my pace rate and when I entered the operation room was met with hello and smile from Dr.Orndorff and Dr.Baumchen then off to sleepy land I went. A few hours later I awoke and all my pain was gone, the burning was and i could feel my toes and leg again. A nurse was waiting patiently by my bedside and asked how I felt, after drifting off for what felt like another hour I finally was able to wake up and talk a little. The nurse gave me food and drink and brought my wife into the back and helped me take my first steps which were the best steps I had taken in months with no back pain at all minus the incision pain that was very mild. Recovery has been great and the speed of my recovery I attribute to the professional care of the staff.

Wonderful Place!

Everyone was extremely kind, patient, and went above and beyond to ensure that I was comfortable and understood exactly what to expect. Even though I was nervous, I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to help me through. Thanks to everyone!!

Friendly Service

I did need more notice of what to expect after surgery. I had no idea that I wasn't able to put down any weight bearing on my surgical knee. I fell twice when I got home from surgery that day. Fortunately, I didn't injure myself (I think). I needed a wheel chair instead of crutches. A cane sufficed after a couple of days. Please give more instructions after surgery.

Physicians Surgery Center:

Followed up with the patient who is doing well. We discussed items she thought we could give more emphasis to on discharge and thanked her for her time in evaluating her experience. As always, we strive to give our patients the best possible care we can. Jolene

Excellent, relaxed care provdided

From being greeted by the friendly "paper-filler-outer" to the nurses who take your vitals, to the warm blankets, to the thorough explanation given by everyone with whom you come in contact, there is a calm, peaceful, professional feeling given off of by everyone at Physicians Surgery Center. I know everyone is competent in the job they do! I'm so relaxed that my blood pressure doesn't go up any!

The staff explained every detail of my surgery to me multiple times. They kept me comfortable as I waited. They paid attention to little details - cozy socks, a nice bag to put my things in, a heated air blower to keep me warm. They were communicative with my family. The "bedside manner" of all the doctors, nurses, receptionist, etc. was beyond excellent. If I could recommend a surgical institute this would be the one! I've been to other ORs in Durango, and Mercy's attention to detail throughout the entire experience was unsurpassed. They even gave me up-to-the minute details when they were running behind, and when my doctor would be in to see me. The entire experience was respectful, comfortable and friendly.
