The Staff, Nurse Practitioners, and Doctor were great. Dealing with my insurance was a pain for them but they stuck with it until I was able to get the help I needed. I felt safe from COVID during my appointment.

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.

Visit was quick and easy. Arrived and was given an xray in about 10 minutes. Saw nurse and doctor and given an injection in my knee and was in and out in about 1 hour. Feeling much better now. My 1st trip there, and will return if I need something else without hesitation.

Dr. Colberg takes his time to perform a thorough evaluation of the injury and communicate his thoughts on the diagnosis and help develop a rehab plan. He is patient and provides thoughtful answers to questions. I appreciate his interest/focus on a rehab plan to get you back on the field or court as quickly as possible. Dr. Colberg is an excellent Sports Medicine doctor and I would highly recommend him.
