Re: “Pure hope

Last comment and then this is over. You called me and asked for help, I tried to help. We are not part of Ryan's organization at Rocky Mountain Hyperbaric, we're two separate hyperbaric companies. We know their people and have toured their facility. The only thing that links us is our desire to give back to soldiers for their sacrifices and provide them with free hyperbaric therapy. We ask nothing in return.

You'd have to ask the insurance companies why I have no money for our soldiers, since currently they will not pay for mild hyperbaric therapy for them. That's what the study at Ft. Carson is trying to change. But in the meantime we at Pikes Peak Hyperbaric have decided not to wait and do what we can, now.

That's what we were going to try and do for your husband, as we have for a dozen other soldiers to date. Up to my sixty second meeting with you, in nearly four years I've never had an issue with any of them, just a simple thank you for the free treatment. You can see their stories on our website if you wish. We do get some help in the form of $50.00/month donations from a few wonderful companies here in Colorado to help us subsidize the standard 40-hour protocol we provide for each soldier.

I repeat and let me state this in the clearest terms, I never touched you and there was a witness with us the whole time, a disabled vet by the way who helps me operate our clinic. We have two vets here that help me. And no, I never did have the honor of serving this great nation as my two co-workers did. Which is why it was so important to me to try and contribute my service in this way, with this program. Sorry you seem to see it differently. I can give you the name of the doctor who runs the Ft. Carson program if you like.

Re: “Pure hope

Just saw the comment posted on 8/7 by Julie Radcliffe about me and our company, Pikes Peak Hyperbaric. All I can say is, wow. I understand now why Rocky Mountain Hyperbaric is having their lawyer get in touch with you to have a little chat. I know Ryan and Eddie and they are wonderful, caring people, trying to help. I know the lengths they went to help your husband, and this is the way you thank them? They, like Pikes Peak Hyperbaric, DO NOT CHARGE for our services in treating injured soldiers like your husband. Its our way of giving something back to these soldiers who have given so much in service of their country. The rest of your comments are just plain sad and lies.

We've been treating injured soldiers for nearly four years now and I've never had a problem, until you walked in the door and started slamming my business before I could even get out of my chair. I didn't throw anybody out but I did say "well, I guess our meeting is over then" when you demanded a private entrance to our clinic because you didn't want to walk down the hallway from our salon business, the business that donates 2,000 square feet of space to Pikes Peak Hyperbaric so we can take money that would normally go to rent and use it to help subsidize our SOS (Save Our Soldiers) program. That salon by the way is the largest facility of its kind in Colorado, has been in business in the same location for 17 years and has won numerous national awards as one of the Top 250 salons in the nation as well as being the only two time winner of 'National Salon of the Year.'

I taught fitness for many years, I don't know where you get the 'failed bodybuilder, porno king' thing. Insults aside, what really bothers me though is your claim that I 'chest bumped' you in anger. Are you serious? That's ridiculous and an absolute lie. I never touched you. I did ask you to leave after you went into your rant less then 30 seconds after you walked into my clinic, before I had a chance to say a word to you or your husband, who seemed like a nice guy by the way. I wish you both the best.
