Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Resig and his team were great. I interacted with a nurse, x-ray technician, PA and the doctor himself and all were friendly and efficient. I would definitely suggest filling out the paperwork before getting to the office. I did and the check in process was quick and easy. Both Dr. Resig and his assistant performed an exam on my knee and asked about my symptoms. After discussion and review of my x-rays, we decided the next best step would be to get an MRI. I received a call that afternoon from the facility to set up my scan and was able to get in the next morning. The whole process was great and I'm looking forward to setting up my follow appointment to get some answers!
Was shown to the exam room right away. Scott was quick but thorough and didn't upsell me on unnecessary scans or anything like that. Would definitely recommend.
Very quick and efficient. In and out in about 20 minutes.
I was very pleased with the office, the staff, and especially Dr. Resig. He explained my problem to me and gave me options to consider. He did not push me to have surgery just answered my questions honestly. I really had a great experience.
Very Professional and wanted to get to bottom of what is going on with my knee.
My experience at the office was great. My experience with ZocDoc had a small hiccup. Your service showed my appointment was at the other office (they have 2 locations). When I arrived it was quickly discovered and arrangements were made for me to be seen. I understand that this was not the first time this has happened to a patient who booked their appointment on ZocDoc. Thanks to the staff at both offices for their courtesy and efficiency.
Dr Scott Resig, MD was awesome! Very personable and the whole office was happy you came and very cheerful.
Very caring and professional
Very intelligent and self assured
He took X-rays, that was good. I didn't really sit with him for musch longer than that. I will have to re-evaluate this after a few visits.
It went very well, Scott is very professional, knowledgeable and realistic in his diagnosis! I will follow his guidance in regard to my situation!
Was disappointed to be seen and immediately told to return in a week after inquiring by phone whether we should be seen so soon or wait a while to make an appointment. After being transferred to several staff members, we were told to come on in (I am guessing this staff member wasn't medical). After a 40 minute wait, the doctor introduced himself and told us to follow up in a week. Seemed friendly, but felt this visit a waste of our money and everyone's time.
Everyone was very friendly and I was seen at my scheduled time.
Very impressed with the whole process, receptionist, nurse, PA, but mostly his help in getting me fixed!!
Dr. Resig is alway professional and a great doctor.
This was my first time at this office and I was very impressed with every aspect of my visit! The office atmosphere is very calming and we'll decorated. I waited less than five minutes after I checked in to be taken back to the exam room. The nurse was very pleasant and thorough and it was determined that I needed an x-ray. Again the wait was less than five minutes and the technician was very nice. When the x-ray was done I was taken back to the exam room to wait for Dr. Resig and he came in almost immediately! I have never been through a doctors visit so efficiently before and so I was taken by surprise at the consideration and respect for my time! Dr. Resig himself was very pleasant and he was quick, but not rushed. He made me feel comfortable and he was knowledgeable and thorough. I feel confident that this is going to be a good place to continue the care that I need!
I was most pleased with Dr. Resig; he offered to drain my Baker's Cyst which I had been struggling over with Kaiser for the past 7 months and they refused to do anything about it. I will have the procedure done at a later date with Dr. Resig; he is an outstanding Dr./Surgeon.
Dr. Resig is most professional and an incredible surgeon. I was most fortunate to have had my surgery and post op care performed by Dr. Resig
Got a much needed opinion on my ankle problem. Scott is quick and very good at laying out the diagnostical problem. Comes across very well.
DR Resig is the person I will go back to for the following procedures that will need to be done in the future. Two weeks after surgery knee has not felt this good in as long as I remember. Great teams at the office and where the surgery was done. No I am not looking forward to more procedures but working with DR Resig to improve the quality of my life is what its going to take.
He and his staff are awesome! The are courteous and friendly. Even fish are great as they serve to calm the patient and reduce blood pressure. Proven fact! He looked at my wrist even though it was not on the schedule. It's the staff on the telephone triage that appears to be short and interrupts before I can finish what my needs are. ??
Great! The people were wonderful and the doctor was very knowledgable. I was amazed how fast I got in, got caught x-rayed and got out!!
Great doctor visit. Staff was very friendly and helpful and I didn't have to wait for my appointment at all.
Excellent, communicated what needed to be done and answered all my questions.
It was fine. I feel confident we will heal my problem.
I have seen Dr Resig for a few years for a chronic condition. He is very attentive and thorough. I never feel rushed and always know that he will provide great care as well as offer insight on the latest advancements for my treatments. Very professional manner, would highly recommend.
It was an initial visit....so my opinion has little basis. But his deameanor and knowledge appear to be very good so far.
Dr Resig as well as the entire staff at Denver Vail Orthopedic are very personable as well as professional and knowledgeable Jeanne Schlaht
My fourth visit to Dr. Resig on several issues. He good, easy to understand, works hard to ensure pain is minimal, and good bedside manners. Professional and caring.
Dr. Resig is a nice man. The front desk people are rude and act stressed like they are disarming explosives. I waited a long time on a few occasions. I will not be back and I will not recommend this location.
Outstanding. Prompt, professional, and courteous.
Dr. Resig is awesome and so is his staff, they put the patient first no matter what. His staff is very easy to talk to and understand the frustrations that come with an injury. Being so active in sports it sets my mind at ease that they really take their time to find out how I'm feeling and what's going on. They're brutally honest and help me take MY time (even when I have wanted to rush it) in making the right decisions and recover faster so I can get back at it! I have recommended many friends to him and will continue to send folks his way!
it was a good visit. he delivered hard news very well. it would of been VERY helpful if he would of looked into some muscle pain i am having. i realize he's a joint surgeon, but i needed some support in the muscle area too. the pain is new and extreme to be just joint issues. I am one who has to be told in simple, straight forward plain talk. I don't like to draw my own conclusions. I have had a full knee replacement surgery with Dr. Resig before and he is an excellent surgeon and i will be going back to him for other surgeries. I just needed more bedside manner attention.
He helped me out. And didn't scare me. Yay. I was scared with the pain I was in. All's good now thank you Dr Resig!
Did a great job diagnosing possible causes for foot pain. scheduled surgery, and hopefully success in pain relief.
A very good appointment: on time, courteous, and right on target with review and advice.
Great and knows his stuff
He is an amazing physician! I trust him completely! He has changed my life. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. His staff are very caring and welcoming. Very nice office! Thank you.
Quick and no nonsense. I'd you have what is considered a minor ortho issue/injury and want someone who will take the time to create a little plan of action with you then see someone else. No doubt he knows his trade though.
Yes, I would definitely recommend Dr. Resig to others, He is a specialist when it comes to ankle problems and he knows his stuff !! I have been going to him for 2 years now and wouldn't trade ankle doctors. He has successfully done one ankle surgery on me and will do another one in the near future.
I think Dr Resig and his staff were very professional and try to get to the root of the problem you are having. I will definitely go back
Dr Resig is a great doctor and a consummate professional.
Very knowledgable and very easy to understand diagnosis and choices regarding my knees
Dr. Resig is superb! You can tell he knows his foot and ankle injuries like the back of his hand. I feel that I am in extremely good hands while under his care!
After a 50 minute wait (happened all three times), he spends about 30 seconds talking to you. His answers are as brief as he can possibly make them. He leaves a lot to be desired.
Gave me different options to think about. Staff was cheery and helpful.
He listened and suggested a solid course of action, explaining the details to me.
Entire staff I dealt with was professional listened and knowledgeable.
professional, to the point...
Very good doctor. Highly impressed with MA and supporting staff
variety of pieces - variety of evaluation points - variety of grades most of them good or better
I consider Dr. Resig an excellent surgeon. His interaction with me tends to be a bit short, very direct, and with little conversation. Not a bad thing but often feel more communication would have been better.
Waited over one hour, Doctor spent less than 5 minutes did not even look at the at x-rays which he required. I felt that my aliment was insignificant to him and therefore my presence was an annoyance. I stopped asking questions and got out of there as soon as possible.
It was informative and was given procedures and products to reduce the issue.
Awesome practice. Everyone was friendly and professional.
I went in for a second opinion about a surgery that was recommended for my toe. I left feeling like I had wasted his time, and I didn't even get a second opinion. I know I wasn't asking about brain surgery, but don't take the appointment if the doctor is going to act like what you are asking about is not worth his time. He basically said do whatever you want without any medical explanation at all. I can hardly believe I would be charged for that visit.
