My husband forgot part of his CPAP machine in Denver where we had spent the weekend. We still had five nights in the mountains before we would head back to Denver. We called, and Seth met us at the office that evening and fixed us up with a used part. Great job!
Amber R.
Had tests done and they sent the results the next day. Was called by them before the doctor about an oxygen prescription. They came and delivered equipment 1 hour after order was placed. Friendly and explained everything. Even cleared up some confusion from doctors office. Good people.

Ask for Jeff when need to supplement oxygen due to health reasons or if the elevation is getting you down... Fast and reliable service in summit county!
Molly G.
We used Summit Oxygen to rent an oxygen bar for our wedding up at Copper Mountain. We asked them to set up during dinner and it was SUCH a huge hit that we couldn't get our guests to sit back down for the next course! We got to pick different scents and our oxygen-tender (shamefully we can't remember her name!) was so lovely and helpful. They even include an oxygen and pulse monitor so you can see how you're doing! It was a fun and perfect addition to our night of memories, and they were smooth and helpful along the way.

Small company and personalized service. I tried other cpap providers in this area, but found Summit O2 to be the best. This includes the best informed about what they are selling and why. They deal with very good quality equipment, especially important as we are located at 9,000 feet. They provided free loaner to me when the airlines damaged my cpap, and they contacted the manufacturer and quickly resolved the transfer of a new unit to me.

My husband's 80+ parents came out from MA to visit and their doctor at home wouldn't give them an rx for O2. Summit O2 came out and set his parents up with a condenser. When it turned out dad needed more O2 we rented a second condenser and were able to apply the cost of the first rental towards the purchase of the condenser. Jeff came out on Labor Day to set everything up. Buying the condenser was a great deal and definitely improved my in-laws' stay. I'm glad we have one permanently for future guests too.
