I saw Dr. Davis more than 10 years ago for another surgery and it was very smooth and everything turned out well so I found him again and went for my broken arm. Come to find out and of course he’s very caring taking time to talk to you as were the other members of the office.

Dr Davis is patient and explains everything he is doing so you are comfortable with your options. He also is good at explaining so you can really weigh your options and feels like he is on your side and genuinely wants to help.

Went to Dr Davis with a torn labrum and rotator cuff. His bedside manner was excellent, and he was very informative through the entirety of my recovery. Dr Davis' stellar work has me at about 95+% only three and a half/four months out from surgery.While I feel like I could do anything right now, Dr Davis has done a great job of tempering me and reminding me that I am in fact still healing and human.Not that I would want to go through this surgery again, but if I did, I would want to have it done by Dr Davis.

Dr Davis is absolutely the best, he has been seeing my mother Leticia Magadan since March of last year and we couldn’t be happier with his services. He is very professional and knowledgeable. We are definitely happy to trust my mothers health in his hands. One of the best doctors we have ever meet.

Dr Davis is very good at helping you understand what is going on and the best way to go forward. He puts it in terms that you will understand and spends the time making sure you do understand. I have had nothing but a good experience with him. Keep it up Doc.

I was referred to Dr Davis by Health One Care Now in Aurora, off Parker Road. The entire staff was very friendly. The lady at the front desk was exceptional. She helped me with my check-in process and made it very painless! The PA?that I saw was great as well; he explained everything to me. What a brilliant team!

Dr. Davis’s Testimonials

“Dr. Davis and PA Abbott, I just wanted to thank you for the great work you did on my shoulder.  I really appreciate the skill, teamwork and dedication you both showed in getting me back to work. I have enclosed a couple of things that I want you both to have as a token of my appreciation.”

“I had a right distal biceps repair in August 6, 2018 . By Dec 12, 2018 I was back to full duty. Dr. Craig A Davis and his staff did an amazing job on me. Everyone was helpful and polite throughout my recovery. Thank you very much!!”

Oscar S. | Thornton, CO

“Dr. Davis and his staff were very friendly, supportive, and professional. I had to have two surgeries. Both were uneventful and seemed very routine. At every turn during my treatments, I believed that I was the most important thing happening. This means a lot when your health and well-being are at stake. Thanks for caring about Me.”

Lloyd R. | Bailey, CO

“Dr. Davis is professional and thorough. He performed two surgeries on me, one on each wrist, and both healed quickly and the pain is gone! Every interaction with him has been great. He truly cares about his patients and takes the time to explain each problem and the potential solutions completely. I hope I don’t need surgery again, but if I do, he will be the first person I call.”

Kyle W. | Aurora, CO

“We cannot say enough about Dr. Davis and his entire staff. My husband has had three Dupuytren’s Contracture surgeries and all have been a most positive experience. Dr. Davis is personable, professional and makes you feel you can put yourself totally in his hands and you will be fine, which has always been the case. My husband and I would recommend him highly to anyone we know. His PA and Nursing staff are also exceptional. You never wait long for answers to questions via phone or email.”

Caryl H. | Aurora, CO

“Dr. Davis took excellent care of me during my injury. He was able to surgically repair broken bones at my elbow that have totally healed without loss of motion and with no permanent restrictions. I was able to return to normal activities within 2 months and sports activities within 3 months. I am so thankful for the attention and skill the doctor provided. “

Elaine K. | Centennial, CO

“I’ve had the good fortune of being operated upon by Dr. Davis twice. I’m returning soon for a third operation. He continues to impress me as an unusually thoughtful and sympathetic human being. I’m satisfied that I’ve always been well-informed of my injuries, the relevancy of the procedures he’s performed and the outlook I may have. Really cool guy. I’ve healed well from both surgeries and look forward to better health after the third. I would trust the care of my wife and daughter to him.”
