  • o make a long story short, Dr. Cogan was appointed as our third custody evaluator.  Our case is very complex in no small part because our youngest son has been treated by a psychiatrist since age 3 for an organic psychiatric disorder.  We agreed to use Dr. Cogan as a custody evaluator because we believed that he had the necessary training to decrease the conflict in this post-dissolution matter, and that he would put the children's needs first.  As a licensed medical doctor who is trained and licensed to understand medical diseases, we believed that Dr.  Cogan had the necessary qualifications to explain the context of our son's organic mental health issues, which are influenced by, but independent of, environmental factors.  We were naive.  
    Member Comments: 
    Dr. Cogan failed our family on all levels.  He refused to directly interview our son's prescribing physician and pediatrician when evaluating our case.  He declined to contact the children's schools, including teachers and school psychologists.  He engaged in a series of legal maneuvers (that appear to us, in hindsight, to be self-protective) that put the children in harm's way.  
    Ultimately, Dr. Cogan's recommendations were not accepted by the court, and his findings are at odds with reports and findings provided by the other mental health evaluators who have been involved with the children's lives before and since the evaluation.  We believe that Dr. Cogan acted arbitrarily and nefariously.
    We hope that other physicians and patients who read this review respect the gravity of a situation when a licensed medical doctor fails to contact the attending physician, particularly in pediatric cases, and children are harmed.  Sadly, Dr. Cogan's actions heightened the conflict in what was already a complex situation, and caused lasting damage to our family.
    We stand by what we have written and believe that others should have full information about Dr. Cogan before choosing to work with him.  We invite others, including Dr. Cogan, to contact us directly about what we have written or if they would like more perspective on our experience with Dr. Cogan.

  • She is very personable and knowledgeable. There is nothing I dislike about her. She knows her profession really well, and I think she does children too. She is very compassionate, very businesslike, and she follows-up. You can get into her, but sometimes her practice is closed.

  • Dr. Harris Jensen was okay. He helped me by giving me some affirmations that I could repeat to myself. He made me understand that the things going on at work is what it is and to accept it. He also gave me some medication which helped me not to get more depressed.

  • He is breaking his oath as a doctor to recognize his own limitations as a physician or to recognize the limitations of his practice. Dr. McIntosh is very knowledgeable, but he forgets what he's done or said from one appointment to the next.  His reception staff is beyond rude.  My son, who suffered a traumatic brain injury, developed a seizure disorder. (He's now 23)  He has been seen by Dr. McIntosh for this disorder since its onset in August of 2010.   In the beginning, he was prescribed a medication that Dr. McIntosh said, and I quote, "is not working or your son is having a reaction to it". ( My son was having seizures about an hour after taking this med. ) Dr. McIntosh then prescribed a different medication and slowly cut back on the original drug.  The seizures subsided, but didn't go away completely.  After each seizure, my sons' newest med was increased.  However, after a year, when I called to report a seizure, Dr. McIntosh prescribed an increase in the original medication that was supposedly "not working or causing a reaction".  I mentioned what he had told us originally about the drug and he explained that it wouldn't be a big enough increase to be a problem.  Another seizure, another increase in the "not working" drug.  Again, I mentioned my concern about another increase in a drug that Dr. McIntosh himself said was not working or causing a reaction.  Again, he didn't seem to remember that conversation.  Ugh...  2 more seizures.  Today, my son realized that he only had 2 days worth of his seizure med. No refills remaining.  I called Dr. McIntosh's office to make sure that my son would receive a refill before he ran out.  The receptionist replied to me that it is "procedure for this process to take at least 48 hours".  Hmmm.  It's a seizure med I replied.  She said," Well, I can tell them that he is almost out, but our procedure is 48 hours."  My son called back to advocate for himself and she hung up on him.  So I called again, this time speaking to another receptionist and told her my concern.  She also informed me that it is "policy" for this to take 48 hours.  I told her that in the event that my son had a seizure because he didn't have his medication, we would sue.  The office called back and asked for my son.  The prescription had been called in.  Very frustrating!!

  • I have undergone numerous surgical invasions and am preparing for another in August.  I have PTSD reactions to doctors, procedures, and hospitals.  Just the thought of another surgery brought on extreme panic attacks, anxiety, insomnia, stress, fear and flashbacks.  The psychological and emotional impact was so incapacitating, I considered going into hiding and not showing up for the operation.
    After seeing Terry, I am preparing for my hospital stay with calm resolution, a different perspective, and tools at my disposal to cope with rising distress.  I'm detoxing from the medication that was making my symptoms worse instead of better (and the changes in energy level and mental clarity are dramatic).  Knowing I am not alone, that I am cared for and understood makes a radical difference.  He has made himself available to me, by phone and in person.  Terry's compassion, insight, and knowledge know no bounds.  His office environment is warm, relaxing, and comfortable.  It has been a sanctuary allowing open and safe discussion of very personal emotions and details without judgement or rejection.
    I cannot recommend him highly enough.

  • I met Terry at a time in my life when it seemed everything that could go wrong WAS going wrong. My youngest son started with him as a refferal by insurance. Terry began by looking at the grief response my son was having due to being present when my father, (his Grandfather), died. Then I started talking with Terry when it seemed my world was collapsing around me. Family life was a mess. My husband of 20 years left, then moved across country....leaving me with two teenage boys going through growing pains and identity crises. To make a long story short, Terry saw me through a divorce; helped me to get a glimpse of self worth when I had none; he was there for me through 4 major surgeries in less then a year (during which time my mother passed away and there was no one left for me to turn to); Terry was with me through a dependence on and withdrawl from benzodiazapenes that I had used for years to cope; and what amazes me most is that he is STILL there! As a disabled vet with PTSD I am often hit with flashbacks that can be all-consuming, as witnessed by the events of this week. When it happens I close myself up in the house, not knowing whether I'm coming or going, afraid to drive out of fear of injuring someone besides myself. I had been looking forward to seeing Terry in his office Wednesday afternoon.....it is quiet, safe, supportive, and peaceful there. However, I was exhausted and an emotional wreck and knew it would be best for me not to drive. When Terry found out..... HE CAME TO ME! Terry Pasquin has given me my life back. Any emotional, stressful, relationship, dependence problems you can think of, Terry has helped me through. Now, I can work within reason, think, feel, and communicate.....whereas before meeting him I could not function at all. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

  • Dr. Peters first refused to reschedule my appointment, even when I called 24 hours before the agreed upon time to request my appointment be moved, she disputed this saying that I had called "maybe more like 22 or 23 hours in advance" and would have to charge me for the time (her concern was that she is "self employed and needed to make money"). I went to the appointment despite extreme inconvenience to myself and my work in order to preserve my relationship with Dr. Peters. After I explained that I was in a terrible rush I was asked to wait and proceeded to sit in the lobby for about 15 minutes; eventually I informed Dr. Peters again that I needed to move on with my day and that I was really very short on time as I was preparing for a business trip out of time leaving early Monday morning. At that point, Dr. Peters provided me an option to 'just leave now' but that I would not have any option to return any time in the future if I chose to do so. As that my family physician had recommended her to me I still wanted to try to have the appointment, so I chose to proceed. We sat in her office and had a brief conversation (approximately 30 minutes), after which Dr. Peters made a number of statements (I'm not going to go into details here) along the lines of 'There really isn't any hope for you, go join a Monastery'! The statements she made were not useful or realistic advise and I would think that a licensed Psychologist would take some care with the mental and emotional state of their patients. I left in a very disturbed state about 45 minutes after I arrived. I was charged for a full hours' time and my insurance company was later charged as well. Needless to say I have never returned. Subsequently, after visiting with another local psychologist, also recommended by my family physician, with whom I had discussed the experience above, it was recommended that I give Dr. Peters a chance to try to explain some of the things she said to me which I found useless and hurtful. I sent her a message outlining my questions and concerns and asking if she could clarify some of those statements. The message was ignored. I just wanted to put this out there and let people know that this psychologist may not be interested in actually assisting patients with issues and may only be seeking to be paid for non-existent or even potentially harmful treatment.

  • He's awesome. He's easy to talk to and easy to work with. He's very diligent about trying to find the right medications for you. It's the best bi-polar and depression office in Fort Collins.
