"My name is Wes Roberts, I’m an international leadership mentor. One day I was having extreme pain in my right foot then I thought, ‘Wow, what’s going on?’ I’m a fairly active man, I do a lot of hiking here in Colorado, things like that. I’m 72 years old right now so I want to make sure I’m healthy as long as I can be. I called up another doctor, a very prominent man here in the community and said, ‘Who do you take your feet to?’ and he was the one who mentioned Dr. Oberholtzer-Classen.
My wife is a former nurse, so we understand a bit of medical technology and things like that, and when you’re dealing with your feet, you want to make sure that somebody is going to take good care of you. The wild part of working with her was that I needed three surgeries. She said we can do them one at a time or we can do them all at a time, and I’m the kind of guy that says, ‘Let’s go for the whole thing.’ It was amazing. I was off my foot for a while, but the care that she gave me consistently, even when I needed some extra care, the staff that she has working for her are just tremendous people. That’s part of the thing of what I really like about this practice, is that they are people first before they are professionals but you can trust all of their professionalism as well. They treat you as a person, where I’m sure you’ve been a lot of places where you’re just treated as ‘next’. What they’ve done for me and what they’ve done for other friends that I’ve recommended here has been just significant.
One of the things that I like about what happens here is that they are not satisfied until you are completely well and functioning at your maximum level. That’s what brought me back even a second time, when I had another round, I had a hiking accident where I stepped off a curb wrong and that kind of jarred everything. Again, the physical therapy department, the PAs here, right from the time you walk in, they are people you can trust. Nobody’s paying me to say this, I’m saying it because I really trust this practice and that’s why I can recommend other people - even people who live outside of Denver, when they come to visit me as a leadership mentor, to say if you’re having trouble, I know just the person you need to see.
It’s very warm and friendly. The atmosphere here is one that I enjoy. Sometimes you go to a doctor’s office and nobody talks to you, but the people, from the time that you walk in, are really personable, they know your name, they know who you are, they don’t forget it the next time, so you’re not a number, you’re an individual. That’s another thing, because of my work with developing leaders, it’s important to me to know that I’m coming to a place where they know who I am and know what I need and takes care of it."Wes R.
