Dr. Coleman sat down next to me and explained everything, from blood results through surgical procedure. She took the time to make sure I understood and pushed through necessary orders so my procedure could be schedule right after my appointment. Her staff was friendly, helpful, and I did not feel rushed.

Dr. Colleen Coleman was recommended by three friends independent from one another (including two doctors whom we know) to tackle my wife's bilateral neck dissection for metastisiced thyroid cancer. We were absolutely terrified at first, but knew we were in good hands. Dr. Coleman spends the necessary time with her patients and often has to deliver difficult news, so there can be a wait. Must surgeons would just rush you through. Getting through this surgery was of course emotionally and physically demanding, so this was important. The surgery went smoothly. Dr. Coleman set us up with an oncologist and endocrinologist whom are also each at the top of their game. Nine months post-operation, my wife's cancer is under control due to Dr. Coleman's follow-ups. High-dose radiation took care of the thyroid cancer in her lungs, which is showing no signs of recurring, and the slim surgical scar across her neck is fading fast. Dr Coleman's skill is evident in how faint the scar is and continues

I had my thyroid removed by Dr. Colleen Coleman a couple of years ago and she did an excellent job. First a partial thyroidectomy due to nodes preventing me from swallowing well and placed the parathyroid glands successfully elsewhere in my neck. She later removed the second half using the same scar since there was cancer in the first half. The scar left is minimal and much lower on my neck. Highly skilled and an expert in thyroidectomy surgery. I highly recommend!

Dr. Colleen Coleman is a very thorough & thoughtful doctor. She did an excellent job on my Mom Helen 8 years ago when she was 85 & had stage 1 breast cancer. Dr. Coleman removed tumor in morning, checked the lymph nodes with a biopsy and my Mom was able to go home later that day around 5 PM. Now my Mom is almost 94 & doing well. I recently saw Dr. Coleman myself & I find her to be a caring doctor who wants the best possible treatment plan for each patient she sees. I highly recommend her.

I first met Dr Coleman in 2005 after a diagnosis of breast cancer . She was calm , loving and very understanding guiding me every step of the way . A couple of years later I had the pleasure of her helping me remove my thyroid due to complications . 2014 she performed mastectomy !Once again I was in the best care and her expert delicate surgeon skill left me with no visible scar . She was very sure to make the scar on the right spot . I have no scar . Best surgeon around that's for sure .

Dr. Coleman is my mom's breast cancer surgeon, and we feel so grateful that she is. As soon as you visit her, you feel at ease and so comforted knowing she is there to help you answer any questions. Both of my parents had cancer, and she is by far the best surgeon or doctor I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Definitely wholeheartedly recommend her.
