I had a zoom visit with Dr Colby. During the visit, I was appraised of my current status. The results of my MRA were shared, thoroughly explained, and my questions were answered in terms that a lay person could understand, without being patronizing. Dr Colby is an excellent neurosurgeon and has a relatable demeanor.

I truly cannot give enough stars. Following an unexpected seizure and irregularities in his brain, my husband went to Dr. Colby who was the most incredible doctor I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He has a scribe in the room the keep detailed notes of conversations, ensuring he doesn’t miss a detail, and it allows him to be fully present during appointments - no feeling like he’s staring at a screen or notepad. He also does not make you feel rushed through your appointment. He answers the very question with detail and care. Following brain surgery, my husband was back to work in a month and weened off of seizure medicine completely within 6 months after surgery. It’s been 2 years and still no recurrences or issues. Dr. Colby is a literal life saver and doesn’t get enough praise.

He and his colleagues at Johns Hopkins Neurosurgical Care Unit destroyed my life. Dr. Colby performed placement of a pipeline embolization device in left internal carotid artery. Prior to the surgery, he personally assured me that his partner Dr. Coons would check on me and discharge me. That did not occur. One hour and 20 minutes after an attending physician charted, "patient is critical," I was inappropriately discharged. He eventually ordered an MRI with the indication "dementia." No stars
