He needs to change

Doctor Colon was very helpful at one point. However that was until he had spoken with a family member of mine. He should not have taken the phone call and allowed someone who was part of my mental health issues at the time to speak with him. It ruined all trust. Since then I found great mental health professionals who got me through everything. Its been two years since I have had to see any mental health professional. I am doing great!

One Star

I rarely take the time to review a Dr. unless the treatment received is excellent. My experience here was anything but. Dr. Colon met with my son alone for 10 minutes after asking my husband and I a bunch of questions. I knew exactly where he was heading by the questions he was asking, all of which did not apply to my son or what we brought him in for. After 10 minutes he labeled my son with a diagnosis that didn't even apply to him. When I felt skeptical about returning, I phoned him to ask where he arrived at such a diagnosis and especially after 10 minutes. Not only could he not answer the question, he became extremely defensive and condescending. When I discussed the diagnosis with my Primary Care Physician, he asked me who even came up with something so off target. I decided to cancel my follow up appt and would be very weary before taking another child to see him.

Not worth it

Honestly I wouldn't recommend him to anyone, he really isn't effective or caring. He comes off nice and pleasant at first but after several visits he seemed to be less interested and compassionate. Not to mention he misdiagnosed me from the onset. I wouldn't recommend seeing him for any reason and I wish there was a way I could report him to someone who could have his practice closed because at the rates he charges I was legitimately robbed.

EXCELLENT psychiatrist

I am a long-time professional colleague of Dr. Colon. He is a trustworthy and astute clinician and excellent with medication management. I have had only wonderful experiences with him and he has helped all of the patients and families I have referred to him. Psychiatry is a combination of art and science and his experience provides patients with a high likelihood of success.

Not helpful.

Not professional or caring. Didn't seam committed to me as a patient. I found him more interested in himself and proving his own knowledge and understanding rather than caring for me as a patient. I also found him to be very judgmental and condescending. On several occasions he not only failed to remember what was going on in my personal life but felt entitled to give his unsolicited opinion when I reminded him. Overall not a pleasant person to be treated by and definitely not worth the high cost per visit.
