I think, Dr. David Opperman is the best ENT specialist I have ever seen. I first met with Dr Riefman, he was thorough in checking my throat, ear and nasal passage. He was very nice in diagnosing and explaining my condition.Later Dr Opperman also verified the diagnosis. This clinic is a blessing for Denver.

Buzz and Dr. Opperman are the best! The voice clinic is really responsive to ZocDoc appointments and usually confirm them quickly. Their staff are very nice and were really understanding when I got lost and made it late. Particularly if youare a vocalist, these guys have crazy experience. Buzz knows every vocalist in the book and works with artists at Red Rocks! These guys know what they're doing and are nice and talkative! Thank you!

We are German tourists visiting and were incredibly lucky to run into Dr. Opperman. His service was outstanding. He took all the time needed for diagnosis and treatment of my son, explained every step and gave us great support and comfort.He even kept on asking how my son was via text in the evening and supplied us with great advice. He turned a crisis into an amazing experience. THANK YOU!

I have been coughing since November. I went to many docs and nothing stopped it. So I made this appointment. I mostly worked with Buzz the PA who is very knowledgable. He took a video down my nose and into mythroat. Then the only time I saw the doc was when he quickly went through the video. He said what Buzz already told me. My reflux is terrible and it burned the crisp out of my esophagus. Upping my Nexium and Zantac is starting to help.

Dr. Opperman was very nice. I had the feeling of being rushed a little, and didn't feel that my sinus pressure concerns were addressed very well. My concerns regarding my throat were addressed ok, but again I feel that I hadmore to say. The response "the CT Scan will tell us everything" may be accurate, but I feel it's important to let the patient speak their mind regarding their condition. I did not receive a call today to set up the CT-Scan appointment, as I expected.

I thought Buzz was very friendly and positive, and Dr Opperman was a little more serious and straight forward. Both seemed to get me in-n-out without a fuss, and gave me the support I needed. The only thing I didnt likewas the lady on the phone(front office staff), she was kind of a bully to me and wishy-washy on my appointment needs and whether or not they would take me as a patient as my insurances changed over the year after saying yes they would. Weird.

I was greeted with a smile from Chris at the front desk when I walked through the door. Chris is extremely pleasant and a breath of fresh air. Buzz is a great conversationalist and has a knack for putting you atease before... "he takes a look" :-) Dr. Opperman took time to explain exactly what the scope showed, and gave explicit instructions on how to get my voice back to normal. A great group of professionals. Please allow me to say thank you for making this such a pleasant experience!

I had to fill out a lot of paperwork so that effected my wait time, probably only 10 minutes after paperwork was done. Dr. David asked a lot of questions to try and figure out my issue. After questions and athorough exam of my nasal passages it was determined I must have broken my nose when I was small and as I grew it effected my septum to were my left nostril was 80% blocked and right side not a whole lot better. I need a simple surgery and I'm actually looking forward to getting it done!

Dr. Opperman was very thorough and helpful. He spent as much time with me as needed and made sure to answer all my questions. I have seen many doctors for my sinus issue and he was the first one who tooktime listen and clearly establish a course of treatment to correct the problem. I left his office an hour ago and have already referred my mother and a friend to doctor Opperman, he is a fantastic doctor.
