It's funny how two doctors can dramatically interpret the findings of a CT scan so differently. I went to Dr. Colten with the results of a CT scan from the Morristown Medical Center ER department. On the scan it said there was a "lobulization" on the right kidney. Dr. Colten dismissed it as "inflammation" and scheduled me for a lithotripsy to take care of the kidney stone that had sent me to the ER in the first place. I had a stent in place and was in bad shape. Leading up to the visit with Colton, I had been seeing many specialists because I kept getting worse and had learned to get copies of my records for me to read. I knew a "lobulization" wasn't a normal finding and was glad to finally have something to go on. So I was hesitant to write it off as inflammation. I also have bleeding issues in my family where treatment is needed for something like a lithotripsy. When I brought this up to Dr. Colton, he threw his arms up in the air, waved my chart around and said "now you're telling me you have bleeding issues? I don't believe you!" I left the office in tears not knowing what to do, with a painful stent in place, a report that said I had a lobulization on my kidney and a doctor who didn't believe me! I sat in my car and looked up another urologist who was able to see me the very next day. She read the SAME report and ordered a cat scan with contrast saying, "this is very important. We need to follow up on this." To make a long story short - the "lobulization" was kidney cancer! A plum sized tumor that was "at the point where these things cause trouble." I ended up having a partial nephrectomy in Philadelphia by a world leading urologist three months after I saw Dr. Colton. I shudder to think what could've happened had I had a lithotripsy done on a kidney with a cancerous tumor! There was no excuse for the way I was treated by Dr. Colton. I was a very sick and COMPLIANT patient since all I wanted was to feel better and I knew something was terribly wrong. I had lots of symptoms and was failing fast. I've had doctors who don't have the best bedside manners but are still excellent diagnosticians. And I would recommend them highly. But to have someone right off a report with certifiable results AND treat the patient as I was treated is inexcusable and dangerous. Thanks to the urologist who lead me to her mentor at the Hospital of the Univeristy of Pennsylvania I am cancer free today and very, very lucky.
I went for an appointment at Dr. Colton's Denville location, the wait time was minimal but the staff was not pleasant. I had to call my Dr's office to send test results over a few days prior, and I figured they would do so. Dr. Colton's staff did not contact me prior to the appointment to let me know they had not received the paperwork so when I showed up for my appointment, I received attitude from the staff for the paperwork not being in. Then the Dr prescribed a CT scan at a local hospital, I showed up for my appointment only to find out Dr. Colton's office did not verify the appointment with my insurance. When I called Dr. Colton's office to find out why, they informed me that they didnt know I made the appointment ... MAJOR attitude for that as well (I was never told by the staff that I had to contact them once I made the appointment for the CT scan). Overall, Dr. Colton is OK but his staff made the experience horrendous.
