Patient Comments (3)

Excellent!! Very thorough exam of knee and clearly communicated likely causes of pain and options for treatment. Took time to answer questions and clearly explain details.

I have seen Dr. Colberg for my knee. I am 61 years old (female) and have been working out with heavy weights for 2 decades. I initially saw another doctor at another clinic who told me to stop lifting, due to my age. I was horrified. On my first visit with Dr. Colberg I was afraid of the same prognosis, but his advice was the opposite. I am extremely pleased. His ability to give injections which I barely feel is amazing! And, I'm still at the gym.

Dr. Colberg is professional, courteous and is very knowledgeable about Sports Medicine issues. Physical Therapy and Synvisc injections saved me a total knee replacement. So grateful that a friend referred me to the St. Vincent's Orthopedic Center.
