Colleen is fantastic - I've had other appoints with her and would highly recommend her to others.

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.

Dr. Newswanger is a very knowledgeable OBGYN and helped me become comfortable with my baby & the choices I've made.

Colleen was excellent and I would recommend her to anyone. I have always gone to Hoffman Health partners in Towanda, but was told I needed to go to a gynecologist for a second look. My appointment with Dr. Goldstein had to be canceled, so I was rescheduled with Colleen, and I think I may go to her for all gynecological issues from now on. She is very caring and competent.
