Review for Dr. Colgan

Yes I have received very good care from Dr. Ali. Sadie and Joey have also given me good care. Dr. Ali made me aware of what I could not do after surgery so I could prepare ahead of time. In my recovery she has made me aware of what I am to be doing .

Review for Dr. Colgan

Two back surgeries. The first was "guaranteed" to cure the problem. It did not. Second surgery recommended as the more drastic solution since the first did not work. Very cocky. Cannot deliver. Cannot diagnose problems well. Cannot provide solutions. Don't go to him.

Very disappointed Nov 24 2020
