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

March 04, 2021

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..
October 22, 2020
Everything was okay.
October 22, 2020
Nothing,my visit when extremely well.
October 15, 2020
I brought my own copy of my MRI. That was just like 3 days old maybe 5 and they didn't even look at it til I was headed out the door. Could have spent some time looking at that. Give me an honest opinion of what my images are.
October 13, 2020
Keep up the great job!
October 13, 2020
Dr. King informed me what he thought and ask me what I thought I like his honesty with me that is my most important to me.
October 06, 2020

October 01, 2020
Everything was fine
September 24, 2020
Your office is very kind, very nice, honest. The whole staff was, even the doctor.
September 17, 2020
Actually, every bit of my appointment was so professionally and perfectly mapped out around my health concerns the entire staff was very friendly kind and professional very little wait time. The issue that I have been struggling with for 5 years or more was finally answered thoroughly by doctor King and his staff. I am so grateful to have finally had a medical team as professional as they were thank you
September 17, 2020
I waited a very long time. My appt was at 2:30 but I think I got my shot at 4:30. But I liked the dr. and my knee feels better today on Friday. So I think the shot was a good choice. So I'm glad I went. But my appt. took way too long.
September 15, 2020
I appreciate this practice very much!!
September 10, 2020
I didn't even get to go in with my daughter to see - we're separated as parents. We're split parents, 50/50 custody and her mom withheld a lot information from me and I didn't get a chance to talk to the doctor. So that's why I was very dissatisfied.
September 03, 2020
Less paperwork to fill out.
September 03, 2020
If I could rate my doctor, Dr. Lucas King and his staff higher I would. I have had experience with them before. They are consistently on top of things, compassionate and straightforward. I have nothing negative to add. They are across the board the best team.
September 01, 2020
I was just say that the the receptionist at the front desk were not very friendly. I wouldn't say they were unfriendly, but they weren't friendly either. They did their jobs and they did their jobs well, but that would be my only thing they could have been a little bit friendlier to my son and myself.
August 27, 2020
Time management be on time for appointments and make people wait 30 to 45 minutes in the room for the doctor.
August 27, 2020
This staff at Dr. King's office was very job knowledge and they treated me with very much respect.
August 04, 2020
Wonderful office staff, great doctor
July 16, 2020
Did not see any room for improvement. The office was very well put together. Staff were all very nice and proficient in their duties. I look forward to having a long relationship with this office. Thank you.
July 14, 2020
All was good. I never give anyone 100 percent. None of us are perfect.
July 07, 2020
Had the MRI and XRays available prior to my visit. Information was given to office staff where to obtain both of these and they did not have them for the doctor to view. It was a waste of my time!
July 02, 2020
No response needed everything was done professionally.
June 25, 2020
I was completely satisfied with my visit to Dr. King's office. The x-ray technicians did an excellent job also.
June 23, 2020
Take more time to go over options and recommendations for treatment. Offer statistics on treatment options as to their effectiveness and overall success rates. It seems like I was just taking a stab in the dark as to what will work and how well.
June 11, 2020
Listen to what I had to say and provide more understanding.
June 09, 2020
Nothing, I was pleased that he and his staff were so patient and listened to me. I appreciate all that he did yesterday and wish I had other Doctor's that took the time to listen and understand about my situation as he did. Thanks Dr King.
June 02, 2020
If my visit were free. LOL
June 02, 2020
really nothing, good visit
May 21, 2020
Pictures on the wall in the examining room
May 21, 2020
Spend more time with patients, find history work with patient do not assume that the "normal" is the right course of treatment. There are times when a patient needs the empower or the dr, not just a "referral", 15 min appt.
May 19, 2020
Check in
May 19, 2020
No negative response from me. Everything was great.
May 19, 2020
If I am expected to wear a mask, I except all the staff to wear a mask as well.
May 19, 2020
Not a thing. They are great
May 14, 2020
The wait time was a little too long.
May 12, 2020
Nothing. It was great! My knee feels so much better! Thank you!
May 12, 2020
I have been seeing Dr. Hanson at the Hanson Clinic here in Pueblo West. It good to hear of options in a respectful manner other than the way it is explained by Dr. Hanson. It one of the best experiences that I have had since my spine issue with Dr Anant Kumar in Denver. Dr. Lucas King explained everything that was going and would like to try a less evasive procedure other than surgery. Great experience.
