Patient Comments (2)
in Cedar Falls, IA |
Dr. Colon is caring, gentle, attentive and always willing to take the time to discuss any aspect of your care. I always said when I got him I got the 'A' Team. He did everything to make my treatments comfortable, to reassure me, and to explain very complex tests and results.
in Winter Park, FL |
Dr. Colon-Otero didn't give me an immediate recommendation for my follow up therapy. While I was in consultation he took all possible factors, questioning me and reading what other dr. had done/said - then while I was there he went online and looked at current papers and trials being done with results. He then looked at a decision tree. This dr. doesn't just say what he learned in med school years ago. He takes the TIME to give you as much up to date analysis before he gives advice!!
