Great GP...easy to talk to

Dr. Colson has been my GP for 3 years. His professionalism, compassion, and breadth knowledge all have exceeded my expectations (by a lot), but what I like most is his ability to listen and communicate. Excellent doctor.

Generally friendly and knowledgeable, but has made comments that could be considered to be "fat shaming" to family members. Making positive suggestions instead of negative comments would be much more useful. Have since seen another doctor who has been so much more helpful and positive.

Dr. Colson in my personal pick for Denver's Top Doc!

Dr. Colson has been my primary care physician for over five years now and I would objectively rate him as excellent in almos every category. I am a Type II diabetic dealing with some early cardio issues, spinal stinosis, occasional gout and some urinary retention issues (prostate) problems. I have always found him to be mindful of all my issues and it's clear he makes a point of being on top of the various doctor's reports that come to his office from the specialist I have dealt with. I am impressed with the fact that he always takes the time to actually listen to me; I have never felt rushed- which is a problem that often occrs with other doctors who seem to feel compelled to get you and and out of their office as quickly as possible. He also seems much more technically competent than other primary care physicians I've dealt with. So in spite of the fact that I'm deaingl with cardio, urinary and diabetes issues, he's clearly on top of the many advances in all these complex medical diciplines. He also has a great personality and sense of humor that makes it so much easier to deal with the complrxity of the medical problems I'm dealing with. I really appreciate that!
