Brooklyn, NY |
Dr. Colah does not have time to talk to you. He doesn't listen very well. On my case, with all my medical issues for which I've been on disability for the past 12 years, he tells me "people with my problems work". This was the lowest points of my treatment with him as well as well as other doctors. I am now afraid to trust a therapist and I refuse to go back to him.

Dr. Colah is kind, understanding, attentive and excellent at what he does. Would highly recommend him.

Dr. Colah is a 5-minute refill doctor. That was fine, until: 1) he told me I could go off lexapro cold turkey (this is a dangerous recommendation; there are severe side effects) 2) I requested Xanax to help with occasional panic attacks (expecting maybe 10 or 20 pills); he gave me 120 pills with permission to take up to 4 per day. I later found out this was dangerous and addictive.

Dr. Colah has caring bedside manner, isn't clinical. His office management leaves much to be desired. I had an emergency issue wiTh my meds and was promised a call within 20 minutes. He didn't call me for 48+ hours and it took countless calls to get him on the phone. I had to file for medical leave; requires him to complete legal paperwork. 1Week later deadline it is still incomplete and HR contacts me daily. His office is disorganized. My therapist and primary care rec to sever this doc.

Dr Colah has a very pleasant and reassuring manner. He always answers everything thoroughly and is very responsive to me concerns.
