Dr. Kolstoe saved my life. I have a rare disease and had been exhibiting symptoms that no primary was able to figure out.

Dad was at Sparrow Hospital and Dr. Kolstoe was called in for a consult and thankfully, he finally solved the mystery of what was wrong...Read More

Dr.Kolstoe was my physician for osteoarthritis, polymyalgia rheumatica, and pseudo gout for decades when he was in Michigan. He is all I would want in a physician. He took time; none of this 15 minutes and you are out. He impressed me as being on top of the literature, and always talked over the...Read More
