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.

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.
