Fairfax, VA |
Donald Colvin may be a good doctor, but my experience with the practice was not good. I sat down for 5 minutes with a PA, and she messed up completely, compared to what my referring PCP sent me for. When I tried to straighten out the problem by having them call my doctor, I got a very non-customer focused people who really didn't care. As well, after my insurance paid their portion of the bill, my bill was $134.00 for the 5 minute talk with the PA. Did not seem like a well run practice.

Dr. Colvin is an amazing doctor ? he?s an even better person. Our county and the world we inhabit is special because of people like Dr. Colvin and the members of his practice. Tackling cancer or a serious bowel disease only leaves bread crumbs of solace ? the time Dr. Colvin spent explaining my condition, the procedure he was going to perform and the recovery process ? during that conversation, I felt at peace having Stage 3-Colon Cancer along with 14 polyps.
Dr. Colvin constantly ask me a question then talked over me as I tried to answer, often to ask me what my very next sentence would have answered. He was not otherwise rude, or friendly. No smile from him although we did shake hands via my offer of hand. He was ready to set up a game plan/have me get imaging and exams done...that was great, but he seemed to take my issue a little more lightly than I think he would an older patient and young people can get & die from cancers.
