Wonderful doctor

Dr. Ocel meets every qualification that I could possibly ask for in a physician. Not only is his experience and skill in his field outstanding, but he is also a fine human being. I felt his positive energy and genuine concern from the moment he walked into the exam room, and his diagnosis and treatment plan for me were spot-on. Although my foot issue did not involve surgery, if it ever came to that point, Dr. Ocel would be my first choice. Denver is incredibly lucky to have this guy!

Most unfriendly and unhelpful office staff

I read reviews about the doctors in the practice before I decided to make an appointment. The negative reviews were mostly about the support staff. I can confirm this. I can't review the Dr because the office staff has refused to give me an appointment and won't work with me to schedule an appointment. I am available every morning every day of the week, pretty flexible patient. I am better off seeing a Dr at another practice that will actually see me!

Can't get an appt with Dr Ocel

I was referred to Dr Ocel for foot injury. I've called the Louisville office twice to get an appointment with Dr Ocel, but the receptionist asked me what is wrong with your foot both times and asked me to make an appointment with Dr Timothy Mazzola. Seriously? I don't want some girl on the phone to tell me which doctor to see, I'm sure the receptionist is a bright girl and all.

Dr Ocel is so fantastic, 1st Doctor I saw said I needed to have ankle surgery and a ankle fusion. Dr. Ocel saw me and said that we could manage my injuring without surgery. He comes in the room with a big smile and the greatest bedside manner, you feel like he really cares about you and your injury. I would highly recommend Dr. Ocel for any one that needs a orthopedic surgeon.
