Dr. Colasanto came highly recommended to me by a work colleague. I truly couldn’t be happier. He is compassionate, thorough, and gives me the time and patience to really explain the course of my treatment and the reasoning why he feels this is in my best interest. I have made some excellent progress under his care and I am very confident that I will be on a fast track to remission under his care. Dr. C is soft spoken, yet confident in his approach. I would encourage anyone in this difficult time in their life to make it a point to seek out his care. Well worth the trip from Litchfield to visit him in Hartford.
