Testimonials

"Dr. Grey, the number one shoulder specialist in Northern Colorado, was gracious enough to take my case and operated on me remarkably quickly (only 2 weeks from my first appointment). He was very humble and caring.”

“Dr. Grey was incredibly thorough in his explanation of my shoulder issue, the surgical plan and follow up recovery therapy. Not only did he explain everything in words but he also drew out what he was going to do and listed steps and time line from surgery to recovery. I am very fortunate to have him as my surgeon.” – James O.

“Wonderful staff and facility. Dr. Grey was my surgeon and I highly recommend!”

“I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon! My shoulder replacement is perfect. Dr Grey is kind, caring and compassionate! I am so happy I chose him!” – Carol T.

“Dr. Grey did a great job as my doctor. The surgery worked well on my arm. A year later I got a bull elk and I'm back salsa dancing, thanks to him and his great team. I'm a doctor too so I know it's a challenge leading a team but he does a great job! Couldn't recommend him more highly!” –Harris J.
