Dr Colman is knowledgeable, empathetic, and involved. He’s truly an excellent doctor in his field. I had an emergency situation and he didn’t think twice about going above and beyond to make sure I was receiving the care I needed. Post surgery, he was up-front about the work I would need to put in to be where I wanted to be post-surgery. He was, and continues to be, highly involved in my recovery. Highly recommend!

Very happy to have Dr. Colman and his team as my spine doctor! I was expecting to have surgery on my neck, but after Dr. Colman review all of my symptoms, MRI'S he said medical care can be complicated, and I do not need surgery! I have neck pain but the pain is not coming from my neck, coming from my bad shoulder, and there is no surgical indication as it relates to my left shoulder. Dr. Colman sending me to massage therapy and it helps a lot! Thank you so much Dr. Colman. Lawrence
