Best Brain doctor in Denver

He is a wonderful doctor. I saw him for a second opinion on a tumor. He really took his time and explained everything to me. I decided to have him do my surgery and it is the best decision I could have made. He has been a such a compassionate, knowledgeable and caring doctor. He called to check on me after I went home. I feel really good after surgery. He is very responsive, I always reach someone and get an answer same day from both doctor and staff. I was originally sent to another doctor and it is night and day difference between them. Just wonderful doctor.

Great doctor

Accurate diagnosis with my aneurysm after being told it was not by ER doctor. Dr. M did my surgery and I am great! He was very kind to me and my family and checked on me even when he was not on call at the hospital. My follow up visits have been good and he always asked if we have anymore questions and is very patient with us when explaining everything.
