DR. COLON AND ALL HIS STAFF ARE THE BEST. I HAVE BEEN SEEING THEM SINCE 2006!
in Lampasas, TX |
In my long life (83) I have visited myriad of physicians, both while in the Military, in US civilian life and civilian life in foreign countries. I can honestly say that I have never seen an examination more thorough, explained in minute details, and conducted in a professional manner than the one I witness Dr. Colon perform on my wife for her condition or any condition I ever had. He spent one hour and ten minutes examining my wife for her nerves problems. His staff reflects his professionalism
Killeen, TX |
I felt like the Dr was thorough and not dismissive of my concerns.The day after the MRI he ordered, my back went out completely. I was in severe pain and immobilized over the weekend. When I called on Monday to try to get a stat appt with the Dr, or at least have him check my MRI results asap, I was told I would have to get another referral from my PCP, which is not required by my ins, its just their policy. Never notified of my MRI results. I'm not jumping through hoops and wasting $ for them.
