I went in for a consultation (which was free) on December 31st and made appointments to have the service done on one knee. They charge a non-refundable $200.00 fee to hold your appointment slot with the doctor. After I arrived home I got a voice mail from the representative who had sat down to go over the payments with me, stating that she made an error in her calculation that was stated to me for the second and third payments. I cancelled the appointments and asked for the $200.00 back even though they specified it was non-refundable. I did not make the error, and they made no attempt to change the payments from 3 to 4 in order to spread out the increase of $1,000.00, and since I would not be seeing the doctor after cancelling, why do they need to keep the $200.00 in order to hold my appointment slot??? Do not give any money up front unless you are ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN that you will be coming for the service. A few days later the doctor called to apologize for the mix-up and offered a discount for the procedure. I'm happy with that and plan on having the procedure done next week. (Update 01/19/2016) I had the procedure done on both knees on 01/14/16 and I am at work today after the MLK holiday. The only pain during the procedure process was the anesthetic had a burning sensation to it that was uncomfortable. The procedure itself went amazingly well and Dr. Michael Cantor is a pro! I had one day of pain, one day of discomfort, and then I was fine. No knee braces, taking off 4 to 6 weeks of work or using crutches like the other clinics I checked into required. I am changing my rating to a 5 star! God bless you Dr. Cantor!!!

I am ever so happy that I found Dr. Rock Navarkal. Being in pain and being hesitant about meeting a new doctor was a waste of energy, because when I met the staff at Rocky Mountain Spine & Sports Medicine I quickly realized that I had nothing to worry about. They were prompt and very courteous to me. The experience I had with Dr. Rock Navarkal at Rocky Mountain Spine & Sports Medicine was the way all my doctors appointments should be but rarely are. Dr. Rock answered all my questions and addressed all my concerns, and even went above and beyond by offering treatments that he could do in the same office. In my previous experience I would have to had seen at least 1 more doctors if not 2 or 3 different doctors and have to go to that many different places to them all. To all others a bit of advice, if your time is valuable to you then go to Rocky Mountain Spine and Sports Medicine, but if your time means nothing, then go to any other doctor.

Why dont all dr.'s value your time as much as theres? I finally found a dr. that does. He was prepared for everything. Dr.Rock blew my mind with his knowledge and readiness for it all. Went in with a pain that wouldn't quit, and not only did he know the right meds to give, but he was able to help this from not happening again by offering all kinds of injections and downstairs had his physical therapy office so we could start the healing process and not just bandaid the problem. My hats off to you Dr. Rock, you're 1 in a million!!!!! If you go anywhere else you'll regret it. Don't waste days or weeks of time being in pain, let the staff at Rocky Mountain sports and spine get you ready for today.

Dr. Rock is the only place you need to go. At Rocky Mountain Sports & Spine Medicine in Denver, CO is a 1 stop shop. Dr. Rock took the time to listen to my ailments and came up with a plan to not only treat, but defeat my pain. Dr, Rock not only treated my immediate pain but used injections and physical therapy to defeat it. The best part was, its all done at Rocky Mountain Sports & Spine Medicine. I would have to say that Dr. Rock is the best doctor I have ever had in Denver! Thank you Dr.Rock!

Dr. Larkin has provided me excellent care for my knees over the past few years but alas time took its toll. I had knee replacement surgery and his surgical skill and personal care and encouragement gave me quick recovery, freedom from pain and good mobility for my years ahead. He always listens carefully and provides good feedback with a genuine caring heart. I thank God for leading me to him and using him to bless me!

Dr Leslie Vidal is fabulous! She was my surgeon when I broke my leg in two places. She has made me feel so comfortable in times when I have been scared and nervous. She is very knowledgeable and super friendly and just awesome. I would absolutely recommend her to everyone. So happy she was on call the night i injured myself. Thank you Dr Vidal from the bottom of my heart.

Dr. Larkin performed two excellent knee replacement surgeries for me, and I couldn't be happier. He and his staff are completely pleasant, professional, and knowledgeable. They always answered all my questions. His care ensured I had two very successful operations and recoveries, and I'm very grateful for the years of mobility I've gotten back.

Dr Larkin performed a total hip replacement on me after a horse riding accident. He promised me i would be back in the saddle and I am. He listems well, pushes you to full recovery, supports your healing process and does follow up. So appreciative to him for giving me back my full range of motion and no pain.
Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
