Dr Colvin’s professional reputation was well known to me prior to my visit, but I didn’t expect quite such a kindness upon meeting. He clearly cares about his patients and I was grateful not only for that, but also for his resolving my condition quickly. I’d offer my highest recommendation.

I can’t possibly say how grateful I am to Dr. Colvin! He is at the top of his field and also shows such compassion and care for his patients. When I was at the end of my rope, he reassured me and then delivered on his words. I trust him and you should too!

I visited Dr. Colvin today and always feel comfortable discussing difficult situations and concerns. He explains things in a manner that it is easy to understand and does not embarrass the patient, He is thorough with examination and asking questions. In addition, he is concerned with the over all health of the patient as well as the reason the patient came for a visit. I have been more than pleased with the help and advise Dr. Colvin has given me.
