During his final year he was named Chief Resident.

Dr. Kolodenker is the best! He is so patient and thorough in explaining the procedures or treatments available. Even when I was worried about the billing portion, he was more than flexible to help clear up confusion and work with me. I can't ask anything more than someone who understands. Thank...Read More
