  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.

She was very kind and informative but I felt she kept talking in circles and repeating herself. Seems she didn't want to do a biopsy with the doctor's opinions.

I could not have asked for a better experience. Colleen was so nice and answered my questions I had. She made me feel so comfortable and again, made me feel that she was excited with my about my pregnancy.

She made me feel like my feelings were irrelevent and that I was uneducated, somehow lower than her. My son had a serious finding on his ultrasound, and she made it seem incomparable to "the things she's been through" as she said.

Colleen is fantastic. She takes the time to listen, and really helps you understand your options regarding the health concerns you have. She does not rush through the visits, and I left with all my questions answered.

I felt like it was rushed due to everything running behind schedule. She did her best to still give me attention & squeeze everything in.
