in Eugene, OR |
Fantastic surgeon with even better be side manner. All of her staff are excellent including her very personable scribe Chelsea. I had a great experience overall and would give Dr. Kollmorgen the highest of recommendations.
in Eugene, OR |
Dr. Kollmorgen repaired 4 hernias for me in May 2016 and and treated an abscess for me in the past week. She consistently earns my respect and trust by providing me with excellent outcomes in her surgeries and procedures. Providing caring and compassionate treatment is her hallmark along with a calm demeanor and an excellent sense of humor. Frankly, I wouldn't even consider another surgeon.
in Eugene, OR |
I have had 2 surgeries with Dr. Kollmorgen. She has been extremely easy to work with and answered all of my questions thoroughly. She is absolutely top notch in her field. I have worked with other surgeons and none were as pleasant. She is highly competent and I would strongly recommend her. You can't go wrong. In addition, the scheduling staff was very helpful, especially Angie.
