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.

I was very nervous about my first colonoscopy. Dr. Fairbanks put me at ease immediately and did an excellent job. I was able to watch the last few minutes of the procedure and it was awesome! She explained everything clearly. I had my procedure done at Parker Adventist and they were wonderful as well! Job well done, Dr. Fairbanks! Thanks, Robin

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 unturned' in regard 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!
