Exce;;ent Doctor

Dr Colby is an excellent physician. He was a part of a team that literally saved my life a year ago when I was diagnosed with a complicated and rare disease that included an aneurysm. He performed brain aneurysm surgery and I had no complications. He was extremely informative with both me and my family and I have had a follow up procedure that he performed that went just as well. I found him to be very warm and caring. He leaves a large gap as part of my care team in Baltimore but will be an asset to whatever practice he is a part of.

Ask Dr. Colby about "dementia" following pipeline embolization device placement. He failed to report adverse event to FDA. At. night, one 3rd year resident covers both JH neurosurgical critical care units--main campus and Bayview. My life is ruined.
