Dr. Kolasinski was very unprofessional. I saw her only one time and during that visit she rushed me, and did not take my concerns seriously because of my age. She felt I was depressed and suggested that I take Antidepressants and talk with a therapist. Turns out I have RA and other autoimmune issues that are currently playing a huge factor in my inability to function well, even at my age. I would NOT recommend her.

Considerate, smart clinician. Always helpful, responds quickly, very thorough.
in Downingtown, PA |
My experience was identical to two people who recently posted to this site. My complaints were dismissed out of hand. She refused my request to examine my feet, saying "we" don't care about that, because of an old injury there. Lab reports were ignored & it seemed she couldn't comprehend the complexity of the problem. Her recommendation? To exercise and eat right. I waited to post a rating to this site; I was sure she was wrong. This week I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis-Pyrrhic victory.
Philadelphia, PA |
Poor bedside manner; arrogant and condescending; she dismissed all of my complaints - completely disregarding my chief complaint (literally DID NOT ADDRESS THEM) - all because I am young and otherwise healthy based on my labs. Instead, she decided to focus on the very mild and controlled anxiety that I have experienced in the past, and decided a psychological exam would be in my best interest.
in Philadelphia, PA |
Rude, inconsiderate, has a major chip on her shoulder. You don't dare question anything, or ask for explanations. She sneered at both of my previous rheumatologists, very unprofessional. She insisted on giving me a neuro exam, then told me that based on her exam, my neurologist was wrong, and that I was imagining all my symptoms. What arrogance!
