Patient Reviews

Dr. Fairbanks has been very supportive and informative with me. I feel like I have been given solid information to make decisions on. She is very transparent and offers great insights!

I am a new patient of Dr. Fairbanks and I was impressed with the care and time she took and the fact that she really listened and was thorough in her examination. She took copious notes, leaving 'no stone un-turned' in regards to my symptoms. She clearly has a command of knowledge in her field and was quick to acknowledge what her level of expertise is and what it is not. I appreciated her openness and honesty and would have to say one couldn't ask for more in a physician! Her office staff were competent, caring and helpful in answering questions. I believe Dr. Fairbanks truly cares about her patients, and I am grateful to have her working on behalf of my health!

I recently saw Dr. Fairbanks for some GI issues that I have been experiencing for approximately 2 months. I found her to be highly personable and was comfortable with her from the very beginning. I appreciated how she seemed really engaged with me and took the time to ask me a lot of questions. It was very apparent that she was knowledgeable and confident in giving me her professional opinion on my condition. What I found touching was how she acknowledged the expense of tests and stated that rather than ordering a lot of expensive tests right off the bat, she recommended that I start with the one test that she felt might confirm her suspected diagnosis. I left the office with a plan of action and regardless of the test results, I feel in really good hands with her. On a side note, her MA Leslie was also friendly, helpful and competent. I really had a great experience for it being my first time as a patient at South Denver GI.
