She always spoke to me in an assured, straightforward language which made me understand exactly what I would expect on this journey. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone.She made what should have been a horrible experience a "successful" journey. Each step from diagnosis,to mastectomy,to reconstruction went exactly as anticipated-exceptional

Words cannot describe how lucky I was to have Dr. Kari Colen as my reconstructive surgeon! She is very straightforward regarding risks and expectations. At the same time Dr. Colen is compassionate, talented, and committed to restoring physical appearance for disfigured cancer patients. Thank you Dr. Colen for being the superstar you are, and surrounding yourself an amazing staff.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer and told that I would require a mastectomy,I could not process the information. Fortunately I found Dr. Colen on the internet. Dr. Colen and staff were professional, supportive, patient, highly knowledgeable, sensitive and compassionate. I was guided through each step of the process and all concerns were addressed. Dr. Colen's skill set as a surgeon is beyond excellence. Her vision and expectations for a positive result has not left me disappointed.

I have been seeing Dr. Kari and her father Stephen Colen for well over a year. I was diagnosed with breast cancer at a young age. I was currently seeing another surgeon before I met Dr. Kari and her father. The best choice I could have ever made, was choosing to go with them. I've had multiple surgeries for reconstruction. I now look PERFECT. They explain everything, go over everything, and make you feel super comfortable. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. I feel like family now!!

Dr. Colen is a terrific surgeon. Also very nice, as is her staff. I had an implant put in after a mastectomy.. I am very satisfied. I would certainly recommend her .
