Dr. Colbert was recommended to me by one of my other doctors. It was the best recommendation! Dr. Colbert put me at ease immediately. He was friendly, patient, and very caring. He took the time to explain my condition to me. His staff is also top notch. They were friendly, efficient, and very confident in their ability to do their jobs ... and do it well. I highly recommend Dr. Colbert. If you have orthopedic needs, you couldn't choose a better doctor.

I broke my wrist very severely this month. After treatment at the ER, I was recommended to Dr. Colbert. I was pretty scared and in pain but was put at ease by Dr. Colbert's caring manner and his wonderful staff, Maria, Fay, Josie and Mary. I was scheduled for surgery promptly after my preop was completed. The surgery was successful and now I'm healing quite well. I'd highly recommend Dr. Colbert and his staff to anyone whose had such an unfortunate accident.

Both myself and my girlfriend have undergone meniscus surgeries with Dr. Colbert and came through with excellent results. During my operation, he also performed a trigger finger release. That might not sound like a big deal but when you're a musician, it is! I searched out the best and Dr. Colbert and staff delivered a solid 5 star service. The visits, run ups, paperwork, you name it, all went without a hitch. By the way, when they wheeled me in, the pre-op nurse told me he's her surgeon too!

The doctor and staff were more than excellent during and after my emergency. I severely injured my thumb and required immediate surgery. The doctor was close by where it happened and took me in and probably saved my thumb. The after care has been equally as good. The doctor and their staff are very kind and helpful. I would recommend him to anyone looking for the best care available. Thanks Dr. Colbert and your staff.

I had a severe shoulder injury last year and Dr. Colbert was assigned to me in the hospital. At the time I didn't realize how fortunate I was there wasn't a different doctor on duty that day. I was told my humerus bone was so badly fractured I would probably need a prosthetic shoulder. Dr. Colbert, with over 30 years experience, was able to save my shoulder. He is an incredibly skilled surgeon and very kind doctor. Dr. Colbert

I've been treated by Dr.colbert for almost 20 years. His staff is knowledgeable and friendly regarding insurance. Dr. Colbert cares and i have had several major surgeries and have rebounded quicker than the average rate. Orthopedic surgery is a very, very skilled profession and I've been a case in point where his skill has enhanced my quality of life free from pain. I owe him and his staff a huge thanks.

I've been Dr Colbert's patient since the early 90's, and he's been keeping me in one piece every since!! I love him and his wonderful staff. I can always get an appointment within a day or two, and sometimes same day. He has helped me through all my aches and pains with back, shoulder, hip and knee. Can't imagine life without his magic touch.

I Highly recommend Dr. Colbert & all of his staff. They are professional, kind, courteous & know their jobs extremely well. Have had one knee replacement & a left shoulder arthroscopic procedure with great outcomes. I will be returning to this office for other orthopedic issues. : )
