I waited over a month and a half for my appointment. The office called me a week before and told me I would have to wait for another month and a half!

Since I have entered my senior years, getting screened for abnormal skin conditions has become an annual necessity. Dr. Colby has been my dermatologist for a couple decades now. She has earned my trust. She has proven to be very competent, thorough, and respectful to me and of my time (excellent on-time appointment record). She has performed several clinical and a few cosmetic procedures on me. I trust her and highly recommend her.

I’ve been going to Dr. Colby for about 20 years. She listens and advises if needed. Answers all my questions. I trust her. She has caught things other doctor dismiss as “let’s just wait and see”. I don’t want to wait to see if it’s cancer. I’ve sent 6 people to her and they appreciate how professional and knowledgeable she is.
