They seem to be overbooked and there are long waits to get x-rays and see the docs. It's hard on people to sit and wIt with bad hips or back
October 05, 2021
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.
September 30, 2021
Listen to me when I say i need appropriate medicine I was ignored
September 30, 2021
The doctor was very helpful when he actually finally got into the room, but I was in the room for 45 minutes, which was kind of discouraging, but he did a good job once he got there.
September 30, 2021
I'm happy. thank you
September 23, 2021
Office personnel were great as was the radiology tech. My history was taken by a knowledgeable MA. The Doctor was attentive, understanding, extremely helpful! Great experience for a new patient.
September 21, 2021
The office could have more information on the clinics the patient is being referred to. Check in process is confusing and I should have been informed where the correct check in was located.
September 14, 2021
Long wait time in room (1 hour). No update by staff on wait time
September 14, 2021
Dr. King was very busy and he PA as well took some time for the appointment but it was worth the time.
August 24, 2021
Takes too long to get an appointment.
August 19, 2021
Less waiting time.
August 19, 2021
Nothing everyone kept the flow of motion and information smooth and understandable
August 10, 2021
Everything was Great!
August 03, 2021
Hi Dr. King was really attentive to the issue that we were addressing. But then when he told me the next for that, I had arthritis. That was all I said I didn't even I go to agree or where to go with it. And when I also asked him about another medical, degree could use syndrome. He mentioned, that's not his area. There was the other doctor, but I didn't get the referral or or a name so that would've been helpful for me.

This was my first visit with Dr. King. I am a prior patient of Dr. Porter. We reviewed my x-rays, discuss past medical history, right knee surgery, discussed my treatment plan regarding both shoulders and left knee injections. My left knee was injected, thank you, and we scheduled my next appointments. Very pleased.
June 24, 2021
Yeah, Dr. King actually was great talk to him seem to know what he was talking about. Put me at ease a little bit about what's going on. The only thing, the only complaint that I would have I rated him an 8 simply because I haven't gone any further than the first office. It was so if he's my surgeon later on, you know, that might increase to 10. But the office staff, I had to walk across with a very sore knee, walk across the hallway to get x-rays. Even though I told him I had recently got them and then when I got there, they said Oh, we need them anyway and the people at the x-ray place across the hallway from Dr. King said that that no, we don't need those so that would be, that would be... that would be my only complaint.
June 24, 2021
Thank you for you guys helping me. I really needed it, and then I feel better with my left shoulder. Thank you, Dr. King.
June 17, 2021
Shorter wait time, but I realize that may be difficult.
June 17, 2021
The office had a disc with x rays and misplaced it I guess so I had to take another x ray which cost money then because the office is overbooked I waited over 50 minutes before seeing the Dr. and that was at a 9:15 appointment. Then seen Dr. for maybe 5 minutes.
June 10, 2021
They were very helpful in the office. The doctor was very pleasant. Everyone did a good job. They took care of getting my x-ray, that I hadn't brought a copy to the office with me, and everything for me. I was completely satisfied.
June 10, 2021
There wasn't anything that you could have done better.It was a very pleasant visit.
June 10, 2021
You all are good!
June 08, 2021
Explained my condition and offered great advice on maintaining my heslth
May 25, 2021
I'm just having issues with Parkview therapy next door, not being able, they said that they never received an order for therapy, which I kind of questioned it. They did. We do have I don't know, but definitely there's a communication problem between them. Thank you.
May 25, 2021
A sign at the front desk stating when they would return from lunch
May 18, 2021
It was fine
May 13, 2021
Nothing- awesome care!
May 04, 2021
Make sure correct packet of info is given
May 04, 2021
Talks very fast. Was in a hurry to get me in and out
April 22, 2021
Completely over booked, I waited over an hour and a half to see a physician. My son could have had an x-ray prior to getting to the facility. Completely unorganized, completely unprofessional, absolutely zero compassion for the patient.
April 22, 2021
Had a great experience, Dee in scheduleing was wonderful and Dr. King was very good and I'm feeling so much better just less than 24 hours later, can not have been a better experience,thanks
April 15, 2021
Given more information. We were told to go back to emergency room.
April 15, 2021
Clarify follow up visits.
April 13, 2021
Dr Kings office is great. Entire staff is friendly from reception personnel to nurse and to the doctors themselves. One doctor visit you don't mind going to.
April 06, 2021
I had to wait quite a while in the exam room and I was told someone would call me to schedule my surgery and that has not happened 5 days later.
April 06, 2021
I was very satisfied with everyone that was involved with my care.
April 01, 2021
Have the doctor actually listen to what I had to say. My impression was that he was quite arrogant. I will not be using him again. Also was supposed to get a referral for physical therapy which he never followed upon. I am seeing a different doctor for treatment now - thank goodness - scheduled MRI immediately.
April 01, 2021
Nothing comes up, it was a good experience.
March 18, 2021
Return my phone calls concerning scheduling surgery.
March 16, 2021
Nothing!! Great front desk and great MA Sheri.
March 04, 2021
Dr king is called that for reason! Very professional .
March 02, 2021
Nothing my needs and questions were answered
March 02, 2021
Be aware that some people are sensitive to perfumes and artificial scents. There was a diffuser at the front desk which emitted a strong scent. Great, efficient visit otherwise, all the staff was wonderful. Thank you.
February 25, 2021
Everything went as planed.
February 23, 2021
I did have to wait quite a lot of time past my scheduled time in the examination before the doctor came to see me but he did apologize for keeping me waiting and I understand that unexpected things come up which result is delays. It seems to me that someone could have come in to tell me that the doctor was delayed so I would have at least known that I had not been forgotten.
February 18, 2021
I was totally satisfied.
February 18, 2021
Absolutely nothing,Very professional.
January 26, 2021
The experience was quick and helpful, I don't know how it could be improved. Make it free forever?
January 21, 2021
Excellent care
January 14, 2021
Not much of anything!!
January 14, 2021
Yes, I had to wait at least two weeks for my appointment and I was hurting the whole time that's not really your fault. But it's one of the things that we're was difficult for me. Thank you.
January 12, 2021
Nothing the visit was perfect.
January 07, 2021
Not much; serve coffee and cookies in the waiting room?
January 05, 2021
if the cray and ct scan that we had done with our regular doctor were made available to Dr. King but the 2 systems don't cross even though they are in the same building.
December 29, 2020
All was done extremely well, from the initial Hello, to the final goodbye.
December 29, 2020
Check in lady drilled me I was getting angry, asking if I was sure what knee and why I was there to see Dr king, there should be notes for her I was late from the cab and called ahead to notify, w my past head injuries, I can recall info once, then feel questioned and no info comes just anger, I'm not stupid just broken, but still works painfully, I to have worth.
December 29, 2020
Hey, I'm just very upset with my hands. They keep sending me to the wrong doctor. He's not a hand doctor. Now, I got to wait for a referral to a hand doctor. I'm so tired of separating. Nobody wants to help me out with any pain medicine. That's it.
December 22, 2020
Right after my brother's appointment yesterday, I am going to call the his primary who is [name redacted] in Mada Vista, Colorado and tell her that he was the best experience that my brother's ever had at a doctor's office, and that I would highly recommend him, and if he does ever have to have surgery, we will gladly go back to see him. He was amazing and his staff was also great. Thank you for everything. And like I said, we had a great experience there, and we really enjoyed the Dr. King and the staff. Thank you so much.
December 15, 2020
Everyone from the check in staff to the nurses and of course Dr. King was wonderful!!!!!! No improvement needed. I have already referred several people to Dr.King. Thank you
December 10, 2020
Very thorough professional and made me feel very comfortable
December 08, 2020
Did really good on the office visit but they the return phone calls to schedule the surgery and then they canceled everything and he told me how important it was to get this surgery. So I really need to follow up from the doctor or his nurse to let me know what's going on because they have the surgery scheduled now it's canceled or follow-up.
December 08, 2020
Dr. King is a wonderful doctor, and his staff takes the time to get to know you and your concerns.
December 01, 2020
At this time nothing, everyone was very professional.
December 01, 2020
It was a great visit. But I always grade a 9/10 to allow room to improve. The office was very thorough and helpful.
November 19, 2020
Yes, I thought he was very good and he explained everything and was very courteous. For a doctor, we really liked him.
November 12, 2020
Yes, I think that my visit would have been a lot better if I would have had a little bit more time to enjoy it and to enjoy my time at the clinic. Anyway, thank you. Bye.
November 12, 2020
Excellent care
November 12, 2020
Nothing. This provider and his staff are wonderful! Throughout my treatment, surgery and recovery, they were professional, knowledgeable and friendly.
November 10, 2020
honestly, nothing really. the appointment was great.
November 10, 2020
Everything was as good as is could be considering the things our country is going through with covid
November 09, 2020
Overall, the staff was really great. I think the only thing that they can work on is sitting down with the patient, and explaining the surgical procedure, and where the person ... the patient needs to go, and what needs to be done before the procedure, even though there were papers given, I think there still needs to be a little bit more explanation.
November 03, 2020
I was satisfied with my visit. Staff was great. Dr. King was great.
November 03, 2020
Everything was fine everyone was very helpful.
October 29, 2020
Dr. King knows his job. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an orthopedic dr..
