I think I have a very good experience, a doctor. Like and his staff, they've been very good for me and I appreciate that and yes, I would recommend him to anybody. Thank you.
July 08, 2021
Was pleased with appointment, staff and doctor.
July 02, 2021
I went in there to talk to doc about about my knees. And we didn't talk about knee replacement. We talked about the cortisone shot, but the doctor didn't really give me any information or recommendation on what I should do or how I should go about it. And I told him my pain level is pretty high but he mostly just listened. And I would have referred that preferred that he would have spent more quality time explaining to me if surgery is needed or what type of shots are needed. And he didn't spend enough time with me on explaining anything to me. I wish I had more of an explanation on my condition and what my options are.
July 01, 2021
Nothing different. It was very professional and organized.
June 08, 2021
I waited 1.25 hours just for the provider to spend maybe 5 mins with me. I also told them I needed the MRI before I go on a trip because we are driving and I'm hoping for relief. I told him things about past medical history, he acted like he didn't care. His personality left A LOT to be desired. This is why people would rather go to Colorado Springs for a real doctor.

Less wait times. More time with patients rather than trying to see so many in a day!
June 01, 2021
Waiting in the office took over an hour, I wish that could be improved a bit.
June 01, 2021
know more about my other health problems otherwise, everything else was wonderful
May 25, 2021
Everything was great
May 25, 2021
My visit with Dr. Likes with amazing. He explained a new diagnosis, that actually really wasn't in his place to do, but he did it in a very respectful manner. Answered, all my questions, showed concern, had a amazing bed side manner, but also made me feel at peace, and know that I was getting the best care possible.
May 25, 2021
This was my first visit and it would have been nice to have downloaded all the paperwork and do it at home instead of in the office.
May 14, 2021
They are fantastic.
May 13, 2021
Dr Rickland Likes is an excellent orthopedic Dr. He cares about his patients and their concerns
May 07, 2021
Long wait times to be seen. I've been at this facility a few times and in total, its about 2 hours from start to finish. The lady at check in was on the phone for personal reason. I waited about 5 mins for her to finish her call before seeing me. She never apologized. Inconsiderate
May 06, 2021
None happy with my visit.
May 04, 2021
My meeting Dr. Likes was the first; therefore, he wasn't aware of my complete medical history. But, I was positively impressed with our meetimg, especially his knowledge and experience. He took the time to learn of my life history.
April 20, 2021
There was no temperature check at the second door entrance and some patients were not wearing masks.
April 08, 2021
I can't think of anything that they could have done better. Everything went well. Everybody was courteous and professional and all my questions were answered. I am extremely happy with the staff and Dr. Likes. Nothing that I can think of could be improved. Thank you.
April 06, 2021
It would be really nice if your x-ray technician would not comment on the people's weight that are in there. Even though I don't weigh a lot, I don't want to hear that I'm really skinny 12 times while I'm in there. And she said it that many times, I counted. It's rude. And you shouldn't comment on people's body.
March 19, 2021
Not a thing.
March 18, 2021
Stand alone temperature taking device (to make sure that you don't have a fever) was a bit confusing to use when you first come into the office. I was not the only one to have trouble using the device. Other than that everything went well.
March 16, 2021
My visit went perfectly.
March 11, 2021
The office staff is usually very nice and helpful. This visit the appointment was running more than a 1/2 hour behind and that messed up my day with other appointments as well as work.
March 11, 2021
I am extremely happy with Dr. Likes and his office staff. I have no complaints.
February 23, 2021
Always kind and professional.
February 23, 2021

February 23, 2021
Thank you for all the help with my knee from my fall. I couldn't ask for better service.
February 23, 2021
Dr Likes was knowledgeable and answered my questions and concerns.
February 16, 2021
In all Sincerity there is NOT one thing to change or even fine tune!!! Excellent service from the entering to the leaving! Thank you! God bless all staff of Parkview!
February 12, 2021
His concern with my health.
February 12, 2021

Lunch
January 28, 2021
My experience was outstanding.
January 26, 2021
they took time in freezing weather to see to my pain
January 21, 2021
Nothing at all the staff is very friendly and very helpful thank you
January 19, 2021
Yes, I had problem with the clinical staff on my insurance. I was never asked if I had a referral I just assumed since someone made my appointment for that day from the hospital, but that was taken care of Dr. Likes did not do my surgery and therefore I don't know if this staff thought he had I don't know but no one out of two visits asked me about insurance and I asked if I had a copay and they said no no money passes for 90 days and so therefore I didn't have a referral and I'm going to end up having to pay for these visits and I'm very unhappy about it. So clinical staff needs to talk to the patient more about insurance problems.
January 07, 2021
Not such a long time in the waiting room. An hour is way too long.
December 22, 2020
All good so far
December 18, 2020
Helped me when no one else wanted to thanks Dr. Likes
December 18, 2020
Confusing results and too many opinions on what to do for my situation
December 16, 2020
There are no ways for the staff or clinic to improve, they were very busy at this time of year which is understandable.
December 16, 2020
I think the visit yesterday was very good. I have never experienced anything like that. Very professional, very well done. I was very pleased.
December 10, 2020
My experience was fantastic!
December 04, 2020
Nothing everything was very good
December 04, 2020
It would have been easier to have filled out all my medical info on an iPad rather than old fashioned paper. There were a lot of pages and it was very difficult to write with my non dominant hand because of my injury but I can type.
November 05, 2020
The doctor that the whole staff could have known more about after care surgical after care doctor didn't seem to know much about after care. I wasn't the staff didn't seem to be so they could have done better with that. Okay done. I'm done.
October 22, 2020
10 i had very good care
October 15, 2020
Long wait to get registered, which I know Covid 19 has delayed normal operations.
October 06, 2020
Dr. Likes, is a okay doctor. But he didn't go over my x-rays with me to let me know how bad my left shoulder was. All he offered was to give me a cortisone shot which I took and I think he could listen to me a little more and let me know what go on in the future. I told him I was going to have surgery which is tomorrow for a pain pump revision. But anyhow, he could have did a better visit with me. That's my opinion.
October 02, 2020
Everything went very smoothly. Can't think of anything that could have been differently.
October 02, 2020

Thorough and respectful.
August 27, 2020
The receptionist was amazing. She really tried to help me with some issues that occurred. I felt she really went out of her way. Also the staff waited for me to try resolve my issue didn't make me reschedule so I really appreciate what they did. The doctor was also great he listened to what I had to say.
August 21, 2020
This offices doctor's, nurses and staff are awesome. Very professional and kind at the same time.
August 20, 2020
Not making us wait an half an hour past our appointment time.
August 18, 2020
The clinical staff and the doctor are highly knowledgeable in what I have going on and there is nothing that they could have done to make it easier or more informational or anything for me. They were perfect.
August 18, 2020
Excellent in all ways. Thank you!!
August 18, 2020
Overall, everything was really good. That office is kind of a notorious for being stingy with the pain medications and what not I only got 5 milligrams of the hydrocodone, my girlfriend got a broken rib, and she got 10 milligrams every 4 times a day and I can only take 1 5 milligram tablet once a day and I'm in brittle pain so more meds would have been great, but other than that, everything was good.
August 18, 2020
Be able to schedule my surgery sooner than 6 wks out or more.
August 18, 2020
Nothing everything was great
August 04, 2020
