Friendly, on time, explained everything thing so I could understand. Best of all I don't have any knee pain
November 23, 2021
Great attention, thank You
November 18, 2021
Nothing at all, Oh maybe some donuts in the waiting area. Just kidding, every aspect of the visit was professional and everyone is very kind and considerate.
November 16, 2021
Everyone I came in contact with is very kind, and helpful.
November 11, 2021
Well, you did pretty good for me. So, thank you.
November 09, 2021
Schedule me earlier; I had to wait almost 3 months.
November 09, 2021
This visit went very well
November 09, 2021
My biggest frustration was that I was left waiting in the room for 15 minutes before my visit and 10 minutes after.
November 04, 2021
I had a good experience. Dr. Likes was busy, but took time to explain what I needed to do.
November 02, 2021
Explained things a little clearer and explained some medical jargon and acronyms.
November 02, 2021
The nurse asked us if we had our covid shots, and that is really none of her business. Or had anything to do with my doctor visit. Thank you.
October 28, 2021
I don't have any problems with the doctor and his office. That was great, but I haven't heard from the scheduling. Yes, from Parkview scheduling.
October 26, 2021
Doctor Likes and staff are the best
October 19, 2021
Being attentive when I walked in. I waited for a while before anyone noticed I had walked in.
October 19, 2021
I came in for a hip leg injury, but my rheumatologist just wanted to get x-rays of my hip, but didn't understand that my leg and foot are the ones of pain and when I brought it up, he could not explain or go further to even examine my foot in the office. So, I was really unhappy. Bye.

Doctors need to spend more time with patients, and you need to stop that division in which one doctor doesn't know what the other one does, and everything is so bureocratic. Dr. Likes did surgery on me and I have barely spoken to him, like you make him and your other doctors gods. Considering the money they make, they should work more.
October 07, 2021
I wish they will keep closer contact with the VA on my situation. It would help out quite a bit.
October 05, 2021
I was not seen until 45 minutes after my appointment time.
September 30, 2021
Been more timely with appointment time.
September 30, 2021
Offered a more precise plan for helping me w shoulder pain while sleeping. It's tough trying to figure out how to get the sleep I need. First time visit though. Everyone was professional and friendly too.
September 21, 2021
I thought an MRI would have been appropriate.
September 16, 2021
My history about ailing joints
September 07, 2021
I was very pleased with my visit to Parkview Tuesday. I have no complaints or no recommendations for improvement. Everything was done very well, and I appreciate it very much. Thank you.
August 31, 2021
I had a 8am appt I got there at the respectable 10min prior to appt to check in and there was no one at the desk. Reception area still dark no lights on. If there not going to be there than dont say it's a 8am appt....not impressed with front desk
August 31, 2021
Everything was fine that's why I continue to see him for the last three years, and when my knee gotta be replaced in a few years that's who I'm going to.
August 26, 2021
The temperature taking machine was difficult for tall people and difficult for short people. The machine needs to be able to be adjustable. Thank you.
August 26, 2021
Wait time in exam room could have been less
August 24, 2021
I can't think of anything that could have been done better. It was my first visit at Parkview Orthopedics and I was very pleased with the experience.
August 12, 2021
Everything was great
August 10, 2021
Dr. Likes provided great service and the nice colorful tattoos on the Medical Assistant brightened my day.
August 03, 2021
Long wait almost an hour from scheduled time to see the Dr. Overbooked
August 03, 2021
Please don't make me wait so long in the waiting room
July 23, 2021
They double and triple booked appointments. So my 10am appt ended up being a 1045 appt and I had my 17month old with me. Because of this, I had to move my schedule around.
July 22, 2021
The only thing I. Will say is there was an excessive wait time after I was taking back into the room. That needs to change. Thank you.
July 22, 2021
All was good!
July 22, 2021
I had to wait to see the doctor about an hour, which was way too long for what we had to cover. It's actually way too long or anybody visiting a doctor, to wait an hour to see them.
July 20, 2021
Everything was great
July 08, 2021
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.
June 08, 2021
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
Everything was fine
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
Been a bit more punctual.
