Testimonials

    INCREDIBLE DOCTOR!! Dr. Mechanik is the best doctor I have ever seen. He was truly interested in getting to know me and about my condition. I had been to 5 other foot specialist before him. He immediately knew what I had, which none of the other doctors even mentioned. After three years in pain, he fixed me. He is the smartest and kindest doctor I have ever had. Hands down Best Foot and Ankle Doc in Colorado and the USA. If you have a foot or ankle problem, Dr. Mechanik is who you need!

    I have been a patient of Dr. Mechanik for over 3 years. He is wonderful to work with. I had a torn plantar fascia and her repaired it with a stem cell patch. My foot has never felt better! The office staff is so nice!

    Centennial

    Outstanding bedside manner, kind, friendly, and compassionate. He is very personable and is committed to making you feel better. He is also just genuinely a good human being. I would recommend him to anyone with any foot related issues. He took care of my chronic, painful ingrown toenails and I feel like my quality of life has improved.

    Clearly understood the problem before diagnosis and identified the problem to me so i understood what and how to improve it.

    Dr. Mechanik was patient and informative with my pre-teen son who was reluctant to have anything done to a painful ingrown toenail. Dr. Mechanik handled it swiftly the day of our first appointment, removing the ingrown toenail, which was able to heal quickly according to the predicted schedule. We appreciate the patience, understanding and great manner that Dr. Mechanik exhibited, which really helped my son through a painful situation.
