Totally awesome doctor. Listens to his patients, helps patients make informed decisions. He did a repair on my hand from a bite wound; I can barely see the scar. I recommend him absolutely!

Recently had a breast augmentation done by Dr. Colen. My experience was great. My breasts look and feel very natural. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an enhancement.
