I come from a family of doctors and it has been a little hard trying to find a good doctor here, near my house, who is also accepting new patients. I read Dr. Colvard's reviews and decided to give it a try- I am very impressed! Dr Colvard is very thorough, knowledgeable and great follow up. He takes his time to listen, right to the point and he does not miss anything.

First the good. Colvard is a wonderful doctor! I'd totally go back to him if he were elsewhere. That said, two things were an issue: First, I was scheduled wrongly twice and the last time when I tried to figure out a date that worked the office manager cocked an attitude with me over the phone because nothing would work and wouldn't even admit they messed up. It's not my fault...if you have to stay later on Friday to get me in I'm sorry, not my mistake. That said though, she's only been doing

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.

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.

Dr. Colvard is an excellent doctor. He's very patient and good natured. He takes time to communicate all my concerns and has consistently given me good recommendations and advice at every visit. He keeps me healthy and I trust him. He also has a great staff that are friendly and professional. Wait times are minimal and if you need after hours help, they are there for you. I feel very fortunate to have him as my doctor. :)

Each visit I have had with Dr. Colvard has been positive. I feel he really cares and listens. And he explains everything fully so when you leave you have a clear understanding of what's going on and what to do. And his staff is friendly and helpful. I have recommended him to all my friends and family.
