One of the most empathetic, informed physicians I've encountered on my MS journey. She is respectful of the patients feelings and works through them to get to the best medical outcome. I am blessed to have found her! Do yourself a favor and let her be part of your medical team.

My sister has MS. I accompany her to most appointments. My sister saw 3 neurologists before Dr Kolb. As soon as we met her, we felt confident in her. Dr. Kolb is by far superior in all areas. She is extremely knowledgeable regarding MS and treatments. She very patiently takes time to explain pros & cons of each treatment & test. She is compassionate and always willing to discuss any issues my sister may be dealing with. We feel fortunate that my sister is under Dr. Kolb's care.

I had been having many health issues for quite a while. The wide range of symptoms made for conflicting diagnoses. Dr Kolb examined me, listened to all my complaints and ordered the correct tests. It turned out that I had 6 different issues happening at the same time. Since then, I am being medically treated correctly for all my health problems. Although not great, I am the best I can be, thanks to her.

I was impressed with my first appointment. She was thorough and took her time to inquire about my illness without being hurried. She exhibits a compassionate demeanor and demonstrated an understanding I have not yet encountered. She addressed the importance of compliance to treatments while not doing so in a condescending or a reproachful manner.

When I think of compassionate and caring individuals I have encountered in a clinical setting (and there are many), Dr. Kolb stands out first among them. She recognized a secondary chronic condition that I refused to acknowledge because of adverse past experiences, then gained my trust and was able to convince me to start treatment where no other clinician could. In retrospect, her intervention was a lifesaver, and possible only because I truly believed she was not only doctor, but also friend.
