I would have liked to have my surgery scheduled while i was there so that I could plan for time off. Dr King wanted me to schedule surgery at the first available time and I need to time to request time off from work. Otherwise it was a positive experience for a difficult medical situation.

On Google Maps it takes you to the front of the building but then there's nothing that saying what's all in there. When you get in, Kind of difficult to find that third floor in the elevator. The elevator's a little bit confusing especially to the older people.

After the nurse left the exam room, I waited about 45 minutes before the doctor came. It would have been nice if someone would have let me know that I would be waiting that long. The nurse told me that all he had to do was look at my X-ray and then he would be in. The doctor did apologize for my wait.

I just found out today that Parkview you probably won't take my insurance, which is Cigna, which is made me, very, very, very upset. I wish they would have given me a heads up that day, but you know, things happen.

Dr. King, Dr. Slone and their staff always have a smile on their face. They make sure to answer all your questions and if they're unsure they find someone who would know the answer. They treat you like a human being and not just a number or a dollar sign.

Dr King and his staff have a place in my heart- very caring and kind. I have an immense amount of respect for him and his treatment of me. I would trust NO ONE else to my knees. Parkview and Pueblo are very fortunate to have him! His staff is some of the best as well- i appreciate their friendliness and care. Love ya all!

Try and improve on the waiting time to see a doctor. They were an hour behind on my 1st office visit. Dr King was Cheerful, and listed to my issue. Nursing staff was cheerful and asked the right questions. Administrative staff was cheerful and efficient.

I use a knee scooter for a fractured ankle. I had to park in the third row from the building and try to roll the knee scooter over asphalt. Very unsafe. Maybe a concrete walkway to increase safety. This has nothing to do with Dr. King or his staff.

I have value too, pronouncing my name correctly would be nice, but the scattered energies wasted time, this care, does not seem to remember,where the last appt; verbal plan is not being noted. Discouraged! Best Regards, the front doorway should have had more wet rugs. Janitors Nightmare, surprised for a very snowy day; was quite busy. Curious how the inspection went, seen the Dept in the elevator. Office; appt confirmation text message short; was the apt overbooked? Under timed? Makes it hard to get transportation scheduled, Mediride is always late to pick me up but if I don't go out to the car or answer their call they consider me not needing a ride home and leave me again.its a really long walk home. A bus pass and exact change due for public transportation, no bus comes close to my home, I walk from transit station. Thinking I need to move to all drs downtown or by Parkview, it is the hospital I usually walk home from; closer to home. Sucked, walking w crutches, canes are exhausting too.

What you did very well was get a person in right away on the appointment. What wasn't was one of the receptionists didn't receive a workman's comp paper and she said that they have any questions or concerns they can just contact. Very rude.

Building should have better, larger signage, give us some clue where elevators are located. This is an orthopedic office, so most us are looking forward to knee, or hip replacements. It is very difficult and painful to do a lot of walking on one or two floors. My only complaint is with this building. The doctor and his assistant, and the rest of the staff were awesome.

I am visually impaired and when I first got there, it was my first visit. There was a lot of paperwork, I had fill out. So maybe they should ask patients when they do schedule if they would like paperwork mailed to him and had a time that way they can have it done prior to the appointment. It would have made the experience a lot better for me.
