I was 19 when doctor Koltun saved my life of a ruptured bowel and my Crohn's. I wish I could tell him of how greatful I am to still be around 18 years later.

My mom's care was terrible. When She was so sick he spoke to her in a nasty tone and adressed her concerns with irritation. He actually yelled at her. He may be a skilled surgeon but make sure he knows you want him not a student intern. My mothers procedure was botched because this happened. Karma will catch up with you Dr
