I have had nothing, but wonderful experiences with Dr. Colvard. He is very thorough, listens, cares, and explains anything and everything. He takes time with his patients and really listens to your concerns. He makes sure to cover all the bases and works with you. He also gets to know his patients. Not only is he great though I love all of his staff. They are always so nice and they make sure you are taken care of as well. They fix issues quickly too.

Dr. Colvard is a very knowledgeable doctor with an easygoing bedside manner. It has become obvious after a few years of visits that his top priority is his patients' long-term health, and he has done a great job of helping me to make that my priority as well. I highly recommend this practice.

Dr, Colvard is very attentive and responsive when needing a quick answer to a medical issue.

Went to Colvard because he took over office when my doctor retired. He took me off one of my meds cold turkey and it put me in a horrible state. Thought I was going to die. I will never go back. I think he should have know the side effects.
