My appointment was 100% the best and most efficient medical appointment I’ve ever had. From the smiling person in registration to Dr Colbert and Amy, I could not be more satisfied. This is the way a medical practice should be run.

First meeting with Dr. Colberg went very well. I was referred the ASMOC by my local podiatrist for a consultation and evaluation of my feet, which has significant damage from Rheumatoid Arthritis, as well as a new recent injury to the right foot. Dr. Colberg was very thorough and honest about my prognosis and treatment options available. He was extremely polite and easy to speak with concerning my injury. Every aspect of the appointment operated very smoothly,from the moment I entered the reception area, interaction with the front desk, radiology department, and the entire staff were professional. Received A-1 service!

He was extremely knowledgeable, caring, and thorough. He took an X-Ray in his office, personally examined my foot and achilles and ordered an MRI same day at another location. His office called me today ( The very next morning with a referral to a surgeon at Andrews who is the specialist I need. I feel very fortunate that I had a chance to get an accurate diagnosis!

Dr. Colberg treated me for a cronic wrist pain. He performed an ultrasound-guided procedure that was key to resolving the problem. He listens well and takes the time and care to explain his observations and possible courses of action thoroughly and in terms easy to understand. He has treated other medical conditions of mine in the past with excellent results. He and his support staff are very professional and friendly.
