Patient of Dr. Kolb for 20 years

I have been a patient of Dr. Kolb for over 20 Years. I am 60 years old, so I have had many experiences with all different doctors and their offices. I reccomend 100%. He is such kind, caring.doctor. He takes time to listen to everything you have to say and doesn't stop till he finds the answers. Every nurse Dr. Kolb has had since I have been seeing him as been very special. They treat you like they have known you for years and are exceptionally prompt on any phone calls, refills, etc. The receptionists are very warm. Immediately when you walk in their is a hello and a smile waiting for you. I trust Dr. Kolb with my life because I know if there is something wrong he will find the answer and if he can't he will send me to the specialist that can. If you are looking for an excellent doctor who will treat you with respect, Dr. Kolb is that person.

Good doctor, staff needs work

He is a excellent doctor, but difficult to talk to if you need him. Even when specifically asked for, his medical assistant calls back instead of him. Have had some issues with the staff, but if you can get past that, he is worth going to.
