The details

Steve Pisano would like to thank his customers and future customers by offering a Grand Opening Celebration from 1 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 3 at 63 Cooper Creek Way, #132 in Winter Park, located in Cooper Creek Square, next to Smokin’ Moe’s. Music at 3 p.m. by Retta and Emily Yarbrough. Appetizers and refreshments by Mountain Grind and Smokin Moe’s.

A resident of Grand County since 1996, Steve Pisano was managing the Ski Broker and doing web design. Enjoying the newly discovered exhilaration of downhill mountain biking, Pisano was on a green-difficulty run at Winter Park Resort, when he went over the handlebars. Having not yet mastered a proper fall by this, his fourth run ever, his impact with the ground severed his spinal cord and broke his back on July 21, 2003, a date he now refers to as his “Celebration of Paralyzation.”

Pisano started his rehab in Craig at the hospital, adjusting to his new life and constantly wondering what his future would look like. He met another wheelchair-bound gentleman who asked, “What are your plans when you leave here?” Seeing this man mobile and with a girlfriend gave Pisano hope. This was the first time that Pisano knew life would be OK and he was destined for something greater.

Pisano founded Device Doctors four years ago after recognizing a need within the community for phone repairs. A friend dropped his phone, breaking it. With no local option for repair, Pisano thought, “I could fix that,” and so he did.

He took classes, read books and spent a lot of time on YouTube developing the necessary skills to repair most electronics.

Recently, Pisano and Device Doctors decided to make a plunge and move to a Cooper Creek Square storefront in Winter Park. He now offers products and services in one location.
