Dr Colaco performed a life-saving surgery for my father. His health was declining quickly due to a large growth in his colon. This was a big surgery, and I am thankful to the team of doctors, which included Dr Colaco for being attentive and responsive to my fathers needs. I consider them all a God-send and am thankful for the skill and professionalism we experienced in working with them.
