Patient Comments (2)
in Troy, MI |
Colombo has poor 'bed-side' manner. Blurt's things out seemingly without any care as to how a patient might feel who is concerned for their vision, eye condition, etc., so I prefer seeing Colombo's other physician on staff. Unfortunately, the doctors disappear, no longer work for him, so I'm never able to see anybody steadily. Same with the person who fits contacts. No one sticks around. Hmmm. Staff is great--the biggest reason I have stayed.
I'm sorry you were displeased with your visit. Dr. Colombo has a well established reputation in the area for providing excellent bed side manner and quality care to our patients. We treat our patients like family. Please visit www.colomboeyecare.com for a sampling of surveys left by our loyal and grateful patients. In regard to physician turnover, it is common in our field for physicians (who are often married to other physicians) to leave and move out of state as their families grow.
