Administrative nursing staff was disorganized and resulted in last minute “hoop jumping” to get preliminary tests and screens completed. Dr. listened to questions, concerns and my feedback. Surgery went well, but a few weeks later, had to be redone due to splitting of bone. No known cause.

Dr. Kolb repaired my arm after a failed surgery from another doctor. He and his staff were very caring and did an excellent job. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Kolb performed two total knee replacements on me in 2018. I cannot say enough about how professional and wonderful he and his staff are. I am so pleased with the results. His staff made what could have been a very stressful time much less worrisome. I am two years out and fully recovered.

It’s been 9 months since surgery, I still have pain and movement issues. My leg below the knee @ the knee is stills numb (I’ve never had this before surgery). He has me come in every 5-6 weeks and all he says is “give it time” and leaves. My other knee was done a few years ago by someone else and no problems like this. I wanted surgery done at St. Joe and his office is in a St. Joe facility is why I went to him. I asked the first time if the surgery would be done at St. Joe, he said yes, no problem. When it came time to do surgery he told me he has to do it at Advocate. I reminded him he had told me he would do it at St. Joe. He said he preferred Advocate and he wouldn’t be able to schedule it for at least 6 months at St. Joe. So he wasn’t honest with me.

Dr. Kolb has amazing ortho surgical skills, he is thorough, has great bedside manner, and is very caring! He takes time to explain everything in detail, as well as answer my questions and listen to my concerns. Wouldn't go anywhere else if the need arises again. Wonderful Physician's Assistant, Shawn Rudicil and great staff all around!

Dr. Kolb is a very nice, caring doctor who takes time to listen. He's respectful and in no way condescending, unlike other specialists I have been to over the years. I have not required surgery so I can't speak about that aspect of his care and expertise.
