Quick, understanding, and very friendly - both the staff and the doctor. Dr. Borisov is very knowledgeable! I went here for a quick visit and now will continue to use him as my PCP.

Unfortunately, I had a very poor experience with this doctor at his office. I waited for well over an hour just for a scheduled physical appointment. The most frustrating part was that patients who were coming in behind me were beingseen while I was kept waiting without any updates. I might have been less annoyed had any of the staff tried to explain what was happening, ask me to reschedule, etc., but everyone basically ignored me while I waited. Once I finally saw the doctor, I was in a poor mood and the visit was quick. I still had to go back to a different doctor later in the week to have my blood work done because I did not trust returning to this place.

I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Borisov. I did feel at one point his personal view on the use of marijuana was quite evident and I didn't really care for that. I told myself he was sharing his thoughts because ofthe medication I would potentially be on... His comment, "it's not legal federally," just seemed a little unnecessary and a little judgy. Anyway, would recommend the office and loved the front office staff. The doctor was super friendly and am looking forward to visiting again.

This office builds time into your appointment for paperwork, which is fine, but they don’t tell you that. So in an effort to be a respectful patient, I arrived early for paperwork, in addition to submitting paperwork through Zocdoc (which theydon’t accept). When I finished my paperwork at 8:40am, I was informed that I was still very early, and my appointment was at 9:00am. Ok, fine, but would have been nice to know since that isn’t what my appointment confirmation showed. She collected a fee, even though I have no co-pay (she said it was due to my deductible; the doctor I saw for a different specialty the day before did not do this), and demanded that I put a credit card on file for them for charges that my insurance declined to pay. I’ve never seen that done before, and told her I did not want to do so, but she said it was required to keep my appointment. I waited in the waiting room until 9:15, when the medical assistant finally brought me back to take my vitals. She told me at that time that the doctor wasn’t even there yet, and she didn’t want me waiting in an exam room all the time, but she would go ahead and put me in an exam room after taking my vitals. I waited in the exam room until 9:30. Very frustrated, and very late for work, I went to the front desk to inform them that I could not wait any longer past my appointment time for a doctor. She had no clue that I hadn’t been seen yet. The medical assistant that took my vitals chimed in to say that he was finishing up with the patient before me and would be in any minute. As I returned down the hall to the exam room to continue waiting for Dr. Borisov, another doctor in the practice asked the medical assistant who took my vitals what time my appointment was and she responded 9:20am, which she knew to be false. I informed him of my actual appointment time and offered to show him my confirmation emails. He offered the excuse that “it must be 9:20 on the doctors schedule”. Yeah right. I was finally seen at 9:35, no doubt due in part to my near walking out of the office and asking for a refund of the fee. Treatment was average at best. The doctor did not seem to be concerned about the issue for which I sought treatment, but more anxious to treat me and get me out of the office. DO NOT go here. It is worth your time to find a different doctor and office.

Everyone in the office was very nice and I was comfortable with Dr. Borisov immediately. I left the office feeling cared for and well taken care of. I have been looking for a GP and I look forward to continuing as a patient of Dr. Borisov.

Overall he was pretty good. I was interested in talking a little bit about fitness and weight loss, which seemed to be a little outside his area of expertise. I did like that he wasn't nervous to be 100% blunt andhonest about potential risks to my future health and what he thought needed to change in my life to fix said things. Overall he was very good, especially for a doctor that I found online for a last minute appointment.

All the staff, nurses and receptionists, were very friendly, as was Dr. Borisov. I was a new patient and as soon as I filled out my paperwork a nurse came to get me for my appointment. I waited in the roomfor maybe 2 minutes before the doctor came in. I would highly recommend Dr. Borisov and his team to anyone. Fast, professional, and great nurses. They all seemed like they actually enjoyed their jobs, cared about patients, and wanted to be there, which seems pretty rare in the healthcare field. If you're not familiar with the area, parking can be difficult/time consuming, so allow extra time for that.

This is one of the worst experiences I've had at a doctors office. I waited until my records were transferred to write a review because I had such a bad experience, which alone took almost 30 days with no return callsand a lie thrown in there saying they were already sent. I finally had to call and leave a message for the office manager today (because apparently, no one could take my call, ever) and magically my new doctor, who is fantastic, received them literally 5 minutes later via fax. Now to the reason I wanted my records transferred, Dr. Borisov had horrible bedside manner during my first and only visit to get a refill. I was treated during my appointment like a drug addict, someone who was trying to con the system to get a medically prescribed drug (and I was not even asking for pain meds!) that my last doctor prescribed who unfortunately had retired. He threatened me with drug tests if I used marijuana, and said if that comes up in test I had to go somewhere else. A) Marijuana is legal, B) I use it once in a blue moon, so it poses no issue which I told him over and over, but he kept repeating this statement, C) I have actual family members with addiction issues, and I am so offended to have been treated this way, no one deserves it. I visited this Doctor about care, not to be treated poorly and threatened like some degenerate. It was embarrassing and highly uncomfortable. My heart rate was extremely high when I went to see my new doctor for the first time because I was so nervous after this experience.

Was just in for a physical, but Dr. Borisov was very nice, but his accent is a little thick & can be hard to understand. The phlebotomists was great, super nice, gentle & thorough. Didn't love that in the reception theywere frequently speaking in Russian so you couldn't understand, but maybe a majority of their patients are.

I arrived right at the time of my scheduled appointment, but was able to get all new patient paperwork filled out and was then seen within 5 minutes of completing. Dr. Borisov was friendly, informative, and took the time to fullyanswer my questions. Being new to Denver, I was happy to find a Doctor and an office that provided great service.

He was great and efficient, nice guy. Reception was nice but they told me on their website to come 20 minutes before my appointment, and then they scheduled me 30 minutes after my alleged appoinment time in case I didn't come.So, that's a silly system, but overall nice people (I don't think it's the receptionists fault or anything) and a good experience. I will keep him as my doctor if every visit goes more or less like this :)
