From Our Patients

" After dragging around a numb right leg for 9 months I now feel like I have a normal right leg. Thank you, thank you Dr. Bainbridge & Sophie. "

- Rita, 7/16/19

" Dear Sophie, A note to say thank you for the kindness and care you and Janelle gave me at my consult with you yesterday – you have given me some much needed confidence. "

- Richard, 6/20/19

" I started treatment with Denver Back Pain Specialists about a year ago. At first I was very skeptical about ‘turning over’ my treatment, as I had been on the same meds for over five years. I am SO glad I did! ‘Doctor’ Baxter has been paramount in my treatment… She always greets me with a smile and is upbeat when she comes into the room. She never makes me feel like I am being rushed…I recommend Sophie Baxter without reservation. P.S. her Medical Assistant (Janelle) is amazing!!! "

- Brian, 6/15/19

" Dear Dr. Bainbridge, My husband Bob was with me when I had my first appt. with you last Monday Jan. 22nd. It was a pleasure to meet you. We appreciate the helpful and detailed information you gave us. I look forward to seeing you again if the need arises. "
