Patient Comments (6)
in Naples, FL |
Dr. Colon and his staff were exceptional. The doctor is excellent and in great demand, but given the severity of my condition they gave me an immediate appointment. Yesterday was my surgery and today I am pain free. I am so grateful to have this caliber of surgeon available to me in Naples, FL. Thank you Dr. Colon, his PA John, assistant Bridgett, and scheduler Linda. You made a true difference in my life.

Dr. Colon's partner did my back surgery 2 1/2 yrs ago, but he retired. When I began having problems with back pain recently, I saw Dr. Colon for an evaluation. The APRN did a quick exam then the doctor came in and prescribed 4wks of physical therapy before returning for a follow up. He did not order an MRI, even though it had been 2 1/2 years since my last one. I changed practices and had my records sent to the new doctor. I am very pleased I made the switch.

Dr Colon did a very thorough analysis review of my condition. Surgery was recommended using a relatively new device. After several months recovery and therapy my condition has completely recovered to normal activity. He was excellent at reviewing options and procedures and has great patient - Dr relationship.

Linda , Dr. Colon's receptionist ,was so rude to me on the phone she actually made me cry. Although I have the proper records and referrals, she refused to complete setting up my appointment. I am not a stupid person, I have an advanced degree, but she treated me as if I was two years old and incompetent. Dr. Colon may be an excellent surgeon, but with support staff like that, he needs to clean house and get new help. Shame on him!

Did not fix the problem and made it worse and refused to make another appointment.
in Ft Myers, FL |
After two surgical procedures I am not any better than when I started. I feel that I have been dumped with no follow up scheduled following the appointment on the one year anniversary of my second surgery.
