Verified Patient Reviews
She's an amazing doctor but the nurses and the people that work in the office aren't really very nice. They aren't friendly on the phone nor do they call back when you need them to. Very unprofessional. But Dr. Colvin is very nice and she really knew how to help me with my injury.
Dr. Colvin was amazing. She is extremely knowledgeable. I felt valued and my time was respected. I would recommend her, without hesitation.
Dr. Alexis was good, however, I had to wait a long time to be seen by her. Before even going in, and after waiting a good half hour, they told me they needed x-rays before anything. I went in, but the x-ray technologist did not seem to know what he was doing. He asked me to remove my bra strap "underneath" my clothes and didn't even bother to look away or leave the room. After taking the x-rays he didn't know where he should take me and started yelling in the hallway "where should I put this patient", yelling until the doctor's assistant called me to go the other side of the hallway. Overall, not very pleasant. After another 25-30 minutes of waiting in a room, I finally met Dr. Colvin, who was very knowledgeable but also very fast.
Dr. Colvin was attentive, detail oriented and very warm and approachable. I went to see her for a second opinion and I felt that her exam was much more thorough than the previous doctor I saw. I was glad I decided to seek another opinion. I would definitely recommend Dr. Colvin and would gladly go back.
Dr Colvin is thorough, warm, knowledgeable.
Dr. Colvin was incredibly concise and clear in her exam and in explaining her thoughts as to what the issue with my hip may be. She was thorough in attaining all relevant details to the injury and outlined the next steps coherently and with confidence. I will be sure to visit her in the future for any additional sport injuries.
She explains very well the causes of your pains and is a friendly doctor.
Dr. Colvin was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. She answered all of my questions clearly and thoroughly. Office staff were also efficient.
Dr. Colvin was amazing! She asked so many questions and took her time evaluating me. I never felt rushed at any moment. The office is state of the art and the staff were very friendly.
The whole practice is very efficient and everyone was cery friendly. I had my condition explained to me and i was given several treatment choices. I feel very well taken care of.
Amazing. Diagnosed me with great accuracy. I followed her advice and she sent me away with many PT resources. My knee is 90% better no surgery. She was very encouraging and a fantastic listner.
Terrific doc, could not advise surgery for my particular condition, but was very helpful with full explanations and suggestions.
Dr. Colvin is nice, professional and very patient. She explained clearly and gave proper suggestions. I would recommend others to see her. However it was a long wait tho.
This is my third visit She is always very direct and a very intelligent communicator. I recommend her without reservation for problems in her specialty areas..
Overall very pleasant experience. She is professional and considerate. Delivered bad news in a way that made sure you understood what was happening and why she gave the recommendation she gave.
I booked for first appointment of the day, and was in and out with one one hour. Dr. Colvin explained my options in detail and allowed me to ask questions if needed. She came highly recommended, and I feel the same. I definitely recommend Dr. Colvin.i
Very professional, thorough and friendly.
Dr. Colvin is great about giving you all the information and options so that you are informed and can base your decision off of the knowledge she's handed you.
Dr. Colvin is a profesional that takes her time in explaining the issues at hand.
The doctor didn't bother to see me before she sent me to an x-ray room through her technician. Exposed me to rays for no good reason. She should have seen me first and then sent me for x-rays. I have an advice for her that she needs to work on her patient-centered skills. It is very important!!!
She was very professional & her assistant was soo helpful.Dr Colvin explained everything to me & helped me make the best decision concerning my situation.she made me very comfortable & she was very easy to talk to about my situation.i would definitely recommend her..Thanks Dr Colvin!!..
Dr Colvin was very knowledgeable and took her time to talk me through all my options. The lady who did the x-ray was equally knowledgable and put me at ease as soon as we met. The wait times and operations of the practice however were very poor. I arrived and waited over half hour for my x-ray. I then waited at least another half hour to see the doctor and finally when the appointment was finished i was asked to wait for my follow on referral details. I waited for a while before asking for help. I was told that i would be attended to momentarily. I waited a while longer and eventually had to leave without my follow up details. Very good medical staff. A lot of improvement needed on the patient care and operations.
She was great, really knows what she's talking about. My only issue was with the lead up to the consult. I was 10 minutes late and then waited for a full hour before I was told to take an X-Ray (didn't know I'd be getting one before I walked in), then waited another 10 minutes to be seen.
Great doctor. Very nice, explains well, and doesn't do unnecessary tests.
While I didn't get the news I hoped for, everyone at the office was great. I was seen early and Dr Colvin was thoughtful and answered all my questions.
Everyone in the office was great - pleasant and efficient. Dr. Colvin was very thorough and took her time in explaining my condition.
Patient, intelligent caring professional!!
Very well streamlined practice. Dr. Colvin is personable and knowledgeable!
I chose her because she has experience with tennis injuries, but am so pleased with her bedside manner and ability to think outside of he norm. So happy that she's in my arsenal of specialists!
Dr Colvin was easy to talk to and knowledgeable. it was a great visit
I like Dr. Colvin a lot, but having to wait > 1 hour for any physician is just unacceptable!
She was on time and tentative. The thing that impressed me the most was her calm demeanour and attention to detail. She made me feel welcomed & safe.
Dr. Colvin is very nice but besides telling me my knee looks fine after the x ray. She couldn't explain to me why my knee still hurts. I left confused and the pain in my knee gets worse in the next few days. I am not sure if she is knowledgeable or experienced enough.
Its my second time seeing Dr. Colvin. Dr. Colvin is very knowledgeable in her specialty and gave me recommendations and options. However, in my first visit I waited 30mins to see her and this visit I waited almost an hour.
She was quick to isolate potential issues and make quality decisions. She was not even specialized in my injury and still managed to prescribe me valuable help. A+++
Great doctor, pleasure to speak with her as always
I had a great experience with Dr. Colvin.
Dr. Colvin is wonderful she listens to you and explains everything. She is a very caring doctor.
Great staff and Dr. Colvin allowed the time to explain my diagnosis and treatment options in great detail and made sure to answer any and all questions I had. I left feeling sure I was in great hands.
Dr Alexis Colvin is a great doctor who takes her time explaining your condition to you and is very caring and meticulous. She did a brilliant job with my ACL reconstruction surgery and I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon.
As often happens with ZocDoc bookings, I didn't actually get the time I signed up for.
She listens to you patiently and answers all your questions and clarifies everything.
Great experience all around. The receptionists are so pleasant, clear, knowledgeable and patient. A treat! Upon giving my consent, I was first examined by a resident and then by Dr. Colvin. I found Dr. Colvin to be personable and reassuring. My issue was explained clearly, a range of options and recommendations were given, as well as time for questions. All in such a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere.
I was in expert hands with Dr. Colvin! I loved how she explained what she thought was going on with my shoulder and her recommendations for further assessment and care.
This was my second appointment with Dr. Colvin and the second time I had to wait almost 1.5 hours before I was seen. In the 1st appointment it was recommended that I get a X-ray which I did. The 2nd appointment was a follow up to both read the X-ray results and make recommendations. Dr. Colvin suggested I get an MRI to confirm the diagnosis. Had she recommended the MRI initially, I would have wasted so much time, in pain. I like Dr. Colvin professionally and would like to continue to see her however the wait time and diagnostic process should be more efficient.
Long wait is to be expected for such a great doctor.
Dr Colvin was great.
Excellent visit -- X-rays were fast, efficient and time with Dr. Colvin was immediately thereafter.
She was informative and very polite.
Explains everything very thoroughly.
Very kind and listened well to all my concerns.
I really like Dr. Colvin and I like the staff as well. This time my wait was about 5 minutes. Last timem it was much longer. I have seen Dr. Colvin at this location and the midtown office.
Dr. Calvin assessed my knee problem but her only solution was to stop engaging in the activities that trigger pain in my knee. I was hoping to hear some type of solution for the problem it was nothing more than an X-Ray and opinion.
She was so kind with my problem and so proffesional with the treatment. I think I did a great election.
Dr. Colvin is wonderful but it does take a while to get an appointment
Alexis educated me in a very accessible way about my condition, and provided clear next steps for approaching any future problems that may arise.
Really good experience. I would also like to note that the office staff for the 8th Ave location were really good. This makes such a huge difference in overall experience.
My visit was great. My issue ended up being outside of Dr. Colvin's specialty, but she still talked with me about my follow-up options.. Dr. Colvin is personable and also clearly knows her stuff. The medical assistants were also great; they were the ones who stopped me from having an unnecessary X-ray done. Though, be warned, what others have said is true--there is a ton of paperwork! It took me about 20 minutes just to get through it all. The wait was fine by NYC standards.
I had such high hopes for Dr. Colvin based on her experience, expertise and online reviews. However, I am disappointed. I was on time for my appointment, but waited over an hour to be seen. I called the office before the appointment to confirm that they didn't need anything from me in preparation for the visit. I was told to download and complete the paperwork from the site and that would be everything they needed. I did just that, but when I checked in I was told that paperwork was dated and they had other forms for me to complete which took me another 30 minutes to do. I waited about another 15-20 minutes to be seen by the doctor after I was brought to an examination room. A medical student came in first to take a summary of my visit needs first which she would share with Dr. Colvin before being seen by her. The student barely took down notes of what I shared with her. Her examination of me was not as extensive as the other orthopedic surgeon I consulted. When Dr. Colvin finally came into the examination room her introduction was curt. Her bedside manner is lacking. She spoke very rapidly and I felt very rushed. Of the 2 x-rays, 1 MRI, & 1 CAT Scan, she only opened the MRI and barely spent a couple of minutes talking to me about it. The first doctor I had seen spent a significant amount of time walking me through all of my images, thoroughly explaining the report findings for each image and answered all of my questions without rushing. She wanted to see the CAT scan report which I did not have. She said she could find it on the imaging facility's site, but did not do that while I was there which I thought she should since I was there for a consult and for her to ask questions and vice versa. I don't feel as though I was heard and that she has a very good, comprehensive understanding of why I was there. Disappointed to say the least.
Very knowledgeable and helpful
Dr. Colvin was very knowledgeable and helped me recover from my injury. Would recommend.
The wait time was bad, but once I met Dr. Colvin, I was very impressed with her professionalism and plain understanding of joints and bones. Great doctor!
Dr. Colvin is very understanding and caring of your well being. Very professional and patient. She explains things in ways I can understand.
Dr. Colvin's office moved me through the process (X-rays and exam) quickly and efficiently. Between waiting room AND the exam room, I probably waited a total of 15 minutes. I was impressed not only with the professionalism of the office, but I thought Dr. Colvin was thorough and informative with the examination. Overall, a very good experience. Gregg B.
Fantastic, thorough dr. Greqt bedside manner. Respectful and patient. A note to those with difficulty writing; the paperwork required before seeing the dr took me 20 or more min, was very repetitive and lots of unnecessary writing and repeating. The most paperwork ive seen in a quite awhile and i see a dr wkly, so if you can't fill out 16-20 pages in a reasonable time, bring help.
Found the Dr. dismissive, could not DX my issues. I find that orthopedic Dr. are useless unless you have something torn or broken
Very straight forward and professional.
I would highly recommend Alexis Colvin, MD! She was absolutely professional, really friendly, and sympathetic. She listened to all of my concerns and responded appropriate.
After completing the paperwork, I was seen right away. Dr Colvin explained the potential causes of my condition very well and pulled up images on a computer to help me easily understand. The people who work in the office were very polite and efficient.
she was great! very friendly and her staff is very friendly as well
Dr Colvin, and everyone that I encountered were amazing. Dr. Colvin took time to answer my questions and to explain my condition in layman's terms. She didn't try to "sell" one treatment or surgery over anothe. Rather she just explained each one as well as the projected outcomes with each. She has an easy friendly, professional manner and she seemed to be well versed with my knee condition.
She is very competent and professional. I would highly recommend her.
She was very personable and asked clear and direct questions. She seemed knowledgeable, and she put things in laymen's terms so that I could understand and make my own decision about how I wanted to proceed.
Dr. Colvin and her colleagues were very understanding and compassionate towards me. They listened to what I had to say, then after looking at the MRI & X-ray she explained to me in a way that I could understand what the problem seemed to be, then gave me a few alternatives & allowed me to choose, then explained what to expect. I would recommend Dr. Colvin for sure.
She is very smart and obviously a very talented doctor. I would recommend her highly.
Dr. Colvin and her team are wonderful! The only downside was the wait, which was over an hour.
It was a good meeting.
Dr. Colvin herself is a physician that would see again for treatment and I would highly recommend her to other potential patients. She is very knowledgeable and does an excellent job communicating information in an understandable manner. Despite having what seemed to be overbooking by Mount Sinai scheduling, two very under supported receptionists at the front desk, and watching patients leave and cancel their appointment, I would see Dr. Colvin again because I did not feel like another patient in and out of a revolving door. Very rare these days with all the cost pressures that hospital push to physicians!
Soooooo many forms. Probably should have warned me in advance to arrive early to fill out the massive number of forms. Save the rainforest must hate you guys! Some staff members seemed slightly unfriendly when compared to my Physical Therapy office and Doctor's office. Everything after the form-filling was good, but I'm aware that the time spent doing forms led Dr Colvin to being rushed. While her advice was great, it did seem like she was rushing to her next appointment a bit so I felt like I was keeping her. This is clearly not her fault, but a shame that it wasn't quite as relaxed an appointment as I'm used to. She's clearly a fantastic doctor.
great doctor, great office staff, highly recommended
Very nice and professional. I had prior surgery with another surgeon in the office and she took the time to review my current x-rays with him. She doesn't specialize in shoulder fractures so couldn't tell me much. But overall good appointment. If I ever need an orthopedic doctor for my knee or hip, she's definitely recommended.
Dr. Colvin was very through and professional.
I waited one hour and a half! How can someone be that late on their schedule? I guess they assume that people have nothing to do besides waiting.. The doctor barely apologized after I mentioned the wait. Unprofessional.
Thorough, explained my problem and treatment and took her time. Definitely recommend her!
She knows what she's talking about!
Dr. Colvin was great! She quickly figured out what my shoulder issue was but then took the time to make sure there weren't any other possible explanations for the pain. We landed back on the original diagnosis, but I felt much better knowing that we'd thoroughly tested out my range of motion and pain points. I'd definitely go back to her.
Wonderful, to the point, succinct. I need to see her for a follow up though. Feel confident I am in good hands.
She's really wonderful. Takes the time to talk with you and see what's going on. All the office staff are very friendly. Very highly recommended.
Answer all my questions, recommended the treatment and the diagnosis to me in patient. very good doctor !
Dr Colvin was very professional, direct and thorough during my visits and on day of surgery. The surgery was successful and staff on site was also very prompt and professional. Wait time during post - op visit was ~45 mins but other visits were less than 10mins.
I waited for more than an hour and she talked to me for 2 minutes maybe and she was kinda rushing..
The wait time was about 30 to 40 minutes. I went in for a shoulder problem…the results were that I had calcium deposits that needed to be removed. Dr. Colvin gave me a prescription for a needling procedure which was done the same day. The procedure took approximately 30 minutes. Everything was done the same day and the pain was gone.
I loved being able to book (and reschedule/move up) the appointment online. All staff was friendly and professional, office was immaculate and Dr. Colvin was prompt, thorough and professional.
Very professional, informative and very very nice
I waited in the waiting room for 20 minutes and then another 25 minutes in the exam room. After waiting 10 minutes in the exam room the doctor walked in only to realize she was in the wrong room seeing the wrong patient- so she quickly excused herself and made me wait an additional 15 minutes while she saw another patient. She came in and looked at and explained an xray for 90 seconds max. Told me there was nothing wrong with me though I was in paralyzing pain and could barely walk. Said that I would need to go get an mri and then come back for her to read the mri results (2 co-pays and mri cost). Said her nurse would give me the information. The only imaging facility she works with could not see me for 1.5 weeks and there were no other options. Wrote me a prescription for something similar to advil and left. Didn't really care about my well being - maybe spent 3-5 minutes with me total.
Dr. Colvin was terrific as usual. Longer wait than normal because of post-holiday appointments.
I was profoundly impressed with Dr Colvin and her staff during my visit today. I had to wait less than 2 minutes basically enough time to take my gloves and winter coat off. Then I waited 3 minutes before the doctor came into the exam room. Usually when I see doctors there is an hour wait time. Dr Colvin did a great job answering my questions and suggesting various treatments.
Dr. Colvin is the most thorough orthopedist I have been to. She seems to go the extra mile to make sure she knows what the issue is. I would refer her to anyone in need of a hip specialist!
Excellent kind physician who explained all aspects of my case and provided options.
Excellent Doctor. Extremely knowledgable and spends time explaining things and answering questions. Would recommend her to everyone.
Dr Colvin is knowledgeable, caring and extremely thoughtful about diagnosis and treatment. I would highly recommend!
Very professional and intentive
Dr. Colvin was friendly and efficient. She was responsive to my desire to move quickly with tests to find out if I needed surgery, based on upcoming events in my life for which I need a functioning knee! I appreciated that she honored my urgency and concern. She is very specialized in knees. I had questions about pain in my toe (which I thought might be related to my main complaint about my knee), but she was not able to look at the whole picture of my joint pain and referred me to a foot specialist in her practice. This micro-specialization means she probably knows everything there is to know about knees, but can't help the whole patient in front of her with possibly related joint issues. This seems to be a trend in medicine these days, not her fault, but a little frustrating for me as a patient.
The wait was a bit annoying, but once I saw Dr. Colvin I was so happy I stayed. She was very thorough and answered all of my questions patiently.
Dr Colvin was extremely welcoming and answered every single question I had. This was a second opinion, and she went through the MRI / xray scans with me (something my first doctor did not do). I will recommend her unreservedly.
Dr. Colvin was very polite, professional and informative. She answered all my questions and offered a solution for my problem. She is also a nice person to talk to.
The best of the best
Dr Colvin was very professional and caring. She listened carefully to my symptoms and was able to make the diagnosis immediately which was confirmed by an MRI the same day. The office staff was also professional and helpful as well. I would not hesitate to recommend her to my closest friends and family.
She was incredibly professional and informative. Took all of my concerns seriously and recommended a course of action. Really appreciated her!
Dr. Colvin was very efficient once I got in to see her. She was able to diagnose quickly and answer any questions I had. I found her extremely helpful. As it was my first visit there was a fair amount of paperwork to complete which took 15ish minutes, once completed I was sent for x-ray's and Dr. Colvin saw me immediately thereafter.
She was really nice and personable. She asked a lot of questions and presented me with options. It was only my first visit but I would definitely go back to her.
I hadn't even finished completing my paperwork when i was called in. No wait time at all. Great experience with Dr. Colvin. Very personable attentive to my complaints. There are three main things I look for in a doctor; Wait time, Personality and staff. the wait time was exceptional, the doctor was kind and attentive and the staff was welcoming and checked me in quickly. I would recommend Dr. Colvin.
Colvin did my acl surgery and did an excellent job. It has healed well and she was attentive to my questions and concerns before and after.
She is professionally competent.
She was prompt, extremely friendly & knowledgeable of my situation (runner training for 1st marathon with knee issues). I would absolutely recommend using this office/doctor.
The office seemed unorganized and the wait was 45-50 mins long but she's a great doctor!
Very professional and efficient.
She took time to answer my questions. She gave me options. Most of all, she listened to me.
Very smart, friendly doctor. Quick appointment. Gave options and explained well. Friendly reception, too.
Dr. Colvin is wonderful! She is very kind and thorough, and took the time to answer all of my questions. Highly recommended!
As always Dr Colvin was helpful in addressing my concerns regarding my knee.Specifically if surgery is an option at this time and modifications I can implement.I feel truly fortunate to have her as part of my treatment team.
i like the fact that she allowed me to ask questions. i never felt rushed.
Very professional and friendly.
Dr. Colvin was nice and friendly, but seemed to be in a rush at certain points. She did make sure all my questions were answered though and made sure that I understood the next steps.
Dr. Colvin was fine, but Zoc Doc gave me a LOT of trouble. Your website was unable to access the Dr.s insurance plan other than United Health, and was not aware that I needed a referral. Because of these 2 VERY BASIC problems in your computer set up. I could not be seen by the dr. on the day of my appt, and spent over 2 hours trying to straighten things out at the first office I had to go to her other office today (2 days later). Your site SUCKS!!!!!!!!
Dr Chen was very pleasant
Smart, considerate and thorough. I appreciate Dr. Colvin because she's not about jumping right into surgery. She considers lifestyle, activity level, etc and recommends the best course. I will be having surgery at some point and I will have it with Dr. Colvin but for now she's helping me stay active with alternative therapies. I am very grateful!
Patient and knowledgeable, unlike some of my past doctors. Pleased to have found her through ZocDoc.
Dr. Colvin is very thorough and thoughtful. I would recommend her to anyone who needs an orthopedist.
I was stunned by her attitude and demeanor. She treated me with no kindness, concern or respect. Seemed to not really care about her patients. Will never see her again!
Dr. Colvin is knowledgable, thorough and kind. She did an outstanding job with my knee surgery. Recovery was smooth and easy. A top professional!
Awesome. Very informative and knowledgeable. Does not rush you, welcomes questions and just an overall great doctor.
Informative and very knowledgable. May return to see her again.
Exceptional! Wish I had come across this specialist sooner. It's as if the questionaire was specifically geared for my circumstance.
She was very personable with excellent communication skills that was easily understood. Knows what she's doing and very informed. Most importantly, I trusted her better judgment and it was my first meeting with her.
The staff was very friendly and professional greeted all arriving guests with respect, even when the front desk was busy checking patients in and out. Not long wait time. My wait time was about 15 - 20 mins. I was a new patient had to complete paperwork. Returning patients didn't wait that long about 5 mins.
Dr. Colvin was great. She took her time to explain everything clearly and made sure I understood everything she said. She gave me different options and explained what each one would look like.
Office staff was very rude.
She was great! Efficient, knowledgeable, appropriately concerned.
Dr. Corvin was very helpful. Great bedside manner. Friendly staff.
Professional, quick and knowledgeable.
Dr. Colvin gave me back my life. I visited 3 orthopedists and went through a long period of physical therapy with zero improvement. My knee was swollen and hurt with every step. Dr. Colvin removed a fluid from my knee and gave me an injection, which helped me right away. After three months of suffering I can enjoy my life again.
Does not treat back
While the front office seemed very busy, I was pleased that I saw Dr. Colvin within about 10 minutes of my appointment time. First time patients should definitely get there early. There is lots of paperwork (some redundant and this part of the visit could really use improvement). Dr. Colvin was pleasant, attentive, and efficient and I would recommend her.
all good can't wait to go again
Heard out my situation, asked about priors, then proposed multiple options of treatment. Very accommodating and helpful. Would definitely recommend to others.
The first time I saw her, she was in a rush, and questioned why I was referred to her. She said she didn't think I needed an orthopedist. She ordered an MRI anyway. While she was away, another doctor there reviewed the MRI and said physical therapy would help the injury. The therapist agreed, and so far treatment seems helpful. Her office called me and scheduled a follow-up, and she said she disagreed that the injury is the cause of the pain, she referred me to a different specialist. I am ok with the referral, and she seems smart. She might be great for some patients/conditions, but in my case, it wasn't a match.
Dr. Colvin is very professional and took time to answer all my questions. She discussed with me a procedure and while performing, it she explained what she is doing and what to expect in the next few days. I visited two other orthopedists before Dr. Colvin and they were not nearly as polite and respectful toward me as she was. Highly recommend Dr. Colvin to all other patients who have problems with knees.
Very short wait (~5 mins) to be seen, doctor explained everything to me, seemed to understand the problem that I was describing to her, and prescribed follow-up care.
She was very friendly and approachable. The front desk staff were great too and I didn't have to wait long.
She answered all my questions and we discussed the next step to determine the cause of my pain
The doctor was fantastic, however the only issue is that when you book your appointment through zocdoc, apparently it is the same as being a walk-in. So I would suggest calling the office directly to book or after you book to confirm they have you. Also, get there more than 20 minutes early to fill out all of the paperwork.
She was very professional and helpful. The wait was horrible though.
Dr. Colvin is very professional, straight forward, non nonsense practitioner who is clearly intelligent and experienced. I particularly liked the fact that she provided all the possibilities of my situation with the various treatments and challenges of each.... The only downside of the visit was the wait which was about one hour.
Dr Colvin and the staff couldn't have been nicer. My wait time was caused because I needed to get an xray as much as anything. Dr Colvin took time to explain to me the issues and talk with me about my choices. She answered every question I had and didn't rush me. I highly recommend her.
It was ok. Long wait. Too much paperwork. Receptionists were nice but doctor seemed to be in a rush.
First time visit. Put me at ease, explained everything clearly, gave me a list of options that did not include surgery, so I was won over then and there, had read my chart carefully, apologized for the wait time.
She was an excellent professional. I highly recommended, specially for amateur athletes!
Excellent doctor, very kind and nice. All the staff helpful and very nice.
I was very impressed by Dr. Colvin and her support staff, especially the x-ray technician. Dr. Colvin explained my diagnosis clearly and answered all of my questions. I did not feel at all rushed. I should add that although the wait time was about 15 minutes, there's a lot of unavoidable paperwork that always comes with any first time visit.
Dr. Colvin was very kind and professional. She wanted to take her time in answering all my questions, rather than rushing through the appointment like many doctors do.
Dr. Colvin was very kind, welcoming, and helpful in guiding my thinking about chronic hip pain from which I'd been suffering. In fact, she ruled out a previous diagnosis from another doctor, which changed the way in which I conducted at home treatment. She recommended me to another doctor, a back specialist, to further help me in identifying and resolving my hip issues.
She is a great doctor she is wonderful
Dr Colvin and her team were unbelievably professional, pleasant and accommodating. Highly recommended!
She was great and very understanding.
Really friendly and very knowledgable.
She was amazing. Warm, professional and very knowledgeable.
Great doctor! Spent time discussing my condition and treatment plan. Took time to answer all my questions and seemed extremely knowledgeable.
Dr was courteous, that's the only positive I'm able to say regarding her. I went to her office for elbow issues, when seeing the doctor she explained that there's nothing she can do without an MRI and gave me a prescription to get one (in and out talking with her tops 5 minutes) After i get the MRI i was told i'd get a follow up call and she'd let me know what we need to do with my elbow. I never received a follow up call, my apt was 10/02, it's 12/02. The bill i received for the five minutes i was in the office was astronomical. And calls to see why it was so much were futile as they did not care, and tried to justify that billing a 30 min visit for 5 min is standard. I'm very agitated on the charges for literally a 5 minute consultation. It's probably better i didn't get a follow up, or who knows what the next bill would've been.
Dr. Colvin is professional and engaging. She explains the options, steps and procedures for diagnosing the issue and possible treatments very thoroughly so that I have an understanding of what to expect next.
Dr. Colvin was thorough and straightforward. I had two appointments with her (initial appointment and follow-up). When I came in to discuss my MRI results at the follow-up (turns out, I needed knee surgery), I went into a bit of shock. She and her staff were very accommodating and helped me lay down in the examination room, brought me blankets and water and told me to not go anywhere until I was feeling better.
Dr. Colvin is very knowledgeable and reassuring. Would recommend without hesitation for hip consultation.
She was so nice and attentive. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Fill out the forms first, it will save you time in the waiting room!
Last question was due to my tardiness,,,
Dr Colvin explained in detail my MRI results and answered all questions..... Very friendly with great bedside manner.
Dr. Colvin was great. Everyone was very friendly, and they were also very quick.
Besdside manner is very good. Takes the time to answer any and all questions you may have in regards to treatment, prognosis and long term care
My wait time was a little long, possibly because I was a new patient, but afterwards it was quick
Very personable and knowledgable. Would highly recommend.
She was courteous and polite and really went out of the way to make me feel comfortable. She asked if I had any questions or concerns and was only satisfied when I was. I would recommend to anyone.
Smart, professional, and helpful. She made sure to answer all my questions and present me with multiple treatment options.
Zocdoc bookings made over the weekend are treated as walk-ins, so beware.
Intelligent and helpful - just be sure to be clear and precise in your explanation of your symptoms so that Dr. Colvin can best prescribe a course of treatment.
Hi. I had a minor sprain in my hip joint for which an extra was taken.. just want to confirm will I be charged for the xray?
Just like all her reviews mentioned. The doctor was very caring and went out of her way to make sure I get an answer to my injury. Will recommend her to anyone dealing with an orthopedic injury.
Dr. Colvin has the perfect combination of compassion, expertise and practicality. She is obviously one of the best ortho surgeons in NYC, and I trust her time and time again with my care. Wonderful ACL surgery outcome, other injuries cared for, and I have made many happy referrals. And given up skiing...
professional-fast-no time for getting to know me as a patient - but diagnosed me accurately Minimum bedside manner- couldn't be bothered I run a large international marketing company and have multiple graduate degrees and I have often wondered why doctors seem to think thy are so much better then we are
She was friendly, efficient and knowledgable! The downside was the wait, however, I'd rather wait to see a thorough doctor than one that pushes you out immediately.
Very helpful. Very quick. Very efficient.
She was great! They immediately did x-rays, and we were able to chat about them in the appointment. She listened to everything I had to say, and walked me through what she was thinking and why.
Very professional and concerned.
Very professional asked multiple times if I had any questions, already called to mention something she did not while in the office.
Excellent! So glad I saw her.
Dr Colvin was very professional, interpersonal, and able to comprehensively address my medical concerns.
it was professional and she was very efficient. and so were the nurses and receptionists.
Alexis was great, she was right on time, did a thorough exam and was very helpful in answering all my questions and issues with a sports related shoulder injury, would highly recommend her.
Again, she really calmed me down with prognosis and time frame. Erred on the side of caution and waiting rather than immediate surgery. Awesome.
Dr. Colvin was very professional and courteous. She wanted me to have a CAT scan and when insurance denied it and her receptionist could not push for approval, she got right on the phone and got the approval immediately.
It was really helpful. She really got to the root of my problem and helped me with what my alternatives to combat my knee problem. I would recommend her to other patients.
Very impressed would recommend Dr. Colvin to my friends.
Satisfied new patient. Promptly seen and the doctor was courteous while taking the time to explain her diagnosis.
She was very attentive and helpful. She took the time to explain the issue and showed us the x-rays and explained them in detail.
I thought Dr. Colvin and her nurses were great- I found her office staff abysmal. I arrived on time for my appointment and then was forced to wait nearly an hour and a half. When I asked the receptionist how much longer I would have to wait, he blamed ZocDoc. It was an awful experience- I will not returning despite how nice Dr. Colvin was.
She and her personal its amazing, without any doubt, I would recommended the doctor for healthcare services.
Dr is knowledgeable & takes time to listen to patient's concerns. Wld see her again if need be.
She is very prompt, thorough and very straight forward. Her diagnosis are always right on.
Very professional and satisfying.
Very impressed, and left with full understanding of the problem at hand. She explained everything well, and answered all questions.
Expert Advice. A true professional. She was my 2nd opinion and I'm glad I went. She was also a recommendation from another employee of my company.
Very professional and nice- explains what she thinks and goes through a course of action. Would recommend.
I thought she glossed over my issue and gave me pain meds and refused to provide options outside the pat and normal. Even though, at 48, she told me I had the knees of a 70 year old, she just suggest PT and weight loss (weight which came on after the injury, because of the pain, BTW) instead of something which would get me back on my feet and back in the game.
Dr. Colvin was fantastic, personable and direct. I had a moderate issue with my knee. She was quick to explain my options and provided a clear understanding of what I would need to do to improve my own situation. Importantly for me, she did no "over-prescribe" and try to "upsell" me to a bunch of imaging. Now, my insurance would have covered it, but I quite appreciate doctors who act in the interests of their patients and not their bottom line. Finally, Dr. Colvin came highly recommended by my GP, after I mentioned I had seen her (ZocDoc identified Dr. Colvin to me). So, though I wasn't referred to her by him, I was quite happy to hear ZocDoc had helped me make the right choice in seeing Dr. Colvin.
I am thoroughly impressed. This experience was completely different from my prior experience with another orthopedics practice. The waiting area was spacious, check-in was busy thought calm, seats were comfortable. Concern for pt. time was conveyed. Xrays were more thorough. I have knee problems so my knees were X-rayed while I was standing, while bending my knees and while I was laying down. My X-rays were immediately transmitted to the room where I met Dr. Colton. The wait for her was 10 minutes tops. She was warm and interested. She shared that she was impressed with the notes I had taken on my MRI report (some docs just get annoyed). She asked questions, reviewed my X-rays and then she examined my knees thoroughly....no 30 second rush job). She reviewed my MRI report than indicated that she would want to see the pictures and from there she provided me with information about what was going on in my knees. She arranged to have additional MRIs done on both knees (since the original was over four months old). I had the MRI done less than an hour later (no waiting). The MRI technician, was also wonderful. Also, where the ortho I originally went to was pushing for surgery, Dr. Colvin decided that she wanted to gather more information, and stated clearly that I DID NOT need knee replacement (and explained why). I left my appointment feeling validate, informed, and feeling like I had a doctor that genuinely cares about her patient's quality of life. Many thanks. A+++++
I was taken in about 5 minutes after my appointment time, spoke to a nurse and then Dr. Colvin. It was a short visit that got to the root of my problem. Great visit,
Dr Colvin and her staff were professional and pleasant.
Dr. Colvin is very professionall and knowledgeable. Took time to explain condition with options for treatment.
Not pleased and certainly not impresed. My appointment today was to have the administer a shot to my knee. The shot is a lubricant to cushion the effect of bone on bone osteoarthritis. I purchased the lubricant at RiteAid on a prescription from the doctor. At no time do I recall the doctor telling me that there would be painful side effects from the shot. Painful the shot was...intense pain. I was then asked how I was getting home, was I getting a ride etc. Apparently the subway was not a good option but it was my only option. I waited for about 45 minutes before I left the doctor's office because I did not have enough confidence to walk to the train and then navigate the stairs. My partner was with me , without his help I do not know how I would have arrived safely home. To be fair the pain has subsided quite a lot and to be further fair the doctor did say there were no gurantees the shot would be a long lasting fix. However when sever pain is part of the process, one should be alerted before hand so necessary arrangements can be made for the patients safety and coimfort.
She was great! Very attentive and knowledgeable. Answered all my questions and gave me suggestions and told me to call her if i had further questions. Wait time was long though..... Didnt see her until 1hour into waiting after having a scheduled appointment.
It was while back when I visited Dr Colvin a couple of times. The entire crew was friendly. What I liked the most was, she wasnt in a hurry and did a careful diagnosis. I even recommended her to couple of my friends.
Dr. Colvin was great. She was thorough and patient. She takes the time to explain everything. I never felt rushed and left fully informed of my situation and options.
SUPER efficient! Shortly after I filled out my paperwork, I was taken to get an Xray and then saw her right after that.
So far so good. She ordered MRI which I've needed for several years. Now hoping to get real reason for increasing pain. Prescribed pain med meanwhile. Thoroughly professional.
I was satisfied. I recommended the site to other family member.
- Good overall experience.
Very professional, direct, gets to the heart of the problem. Answered all my questions with patience and in a professional manner. My 2nd visit, no waiting time either visit. Helpful staff Doctor Colvin discussed options and I chose the best option for me.
I thought she and her coworkers were concerned and caring about my condition and made me feel very comfortable. They listened and perservered until they got answers. I trusted them immensely. I would rant and rave on Facebook and anywhere else. I give them a triple plus rating.
I was quickly called in for the xrays, though had to wait about a half hour before Dr. Colvin came to the exam room. I did not mind though because she was apologetic, friendly, and professional. She provided clear and detailed information and several treatment options. I would absolutely see her again and recommend her. NEW PATIENTS: I suggest arriving 15-20 minutes before your appointment time to fill out the new patient paperwork.
Although definitely a high quantity of patients seen, she pays attention and makes you feel like she is listening.
Bedside manner was amazing, explained things coherently as well as in a manner that was easily understood.
It was excellent She was thoughtful,respectful and knowledgeable and all she listened carefully. Highly recommended.
She's thorough, attentive, and thoughtful. Kind bedside manner, easy to talk to.
As a registered nurse with many years experience. My first visit with Dr. Colvin WA excellent.
Dr. Colvin replaced my ACL in my right knee, and I couldn't have asked for a better doctor or experience given the situation. I would recommend her to anyone in need of joint surgery or help.
Took a while to get in there, but that stuff happens and it was a particularly busy day. What's most important is that when I did get in there, she listened, was attentive and worked with me to find the right game plan to deal with my problem. Would recommend her to someone else.
Although she is not able to help me with my particular injury, she referred me to the appropriate physician and did attend to my concerns. She did seem to rush the appointment but I get it. It's NY... and she probably realized I needed to see someone else and wanted to move it along. I would see her again if I need an orthopedist, definitely.
Dr. Colvin is a fantastic surgeon and doctor. She listens attentively, is thorough, and makes you feel at ease.
I didn't feel rushed and Dr. Colvin took time to answer all my questions.
Office staff are rude and too short with the patients, as if talking was annoying. They apparently do not like to communicate to patients but do enjoy having conversations with each other. Would stop coming just based on the office staff. However, Dr. Colvin was excellent and thorough. She took her time explaining things to me and discussing my options. She was very helpful and made me feel confident that I would begin resolving my months-old knee problems. I was hesitant to see another orthopedist because my last experience was so unsatisfactory, but I'm very happy that I went to Dr. Colvin!
Very speedy service. Dr . Colvin was very willing to answer all my questions and explained my condition in a way I understood. All the staff and nurses were also very polite.
Fast and efficient.
went to Dr. Colvin with running injury. she asked a lot of questions in order to get full understanding of my exercise habits and history of injury, explained everything in a way that was easy to understand, ended up prescribing me physical therapy and offered to also prescribe me medication only if I wanted it for pain. really appreciated that she didn't push the pharmaceuticals!
She was great. The best of Doctors I have ever been to. I Highly recommend this Doctor to everyone..!
Dont expect a warm welcome from the reception desk, that was typically an unpleasant experience, however once I was with Doctor Colvin all was forgiven as she is excellent - straight to the point, clearly explaining the issue, and arranging for me to take the next stage of my treatment an hour later. Highly recommend Doctor Colvin, professional and very pleasant.
I arrived at 9am for a 9:30 appointment and spent about 20 minutes filling out forms. I was seen immediately by a friendly nurse who asked some questions about my complaints and was then taken for X-rays where the technician was exceptionally nice. Dr Colvin saw me immediately after this. After examining the x-rays and my joints, she explained everything about my condition to me and assured me there was no need for surgery on my knee if it wasn`t causing me pain. (Another dr.had insisted that surgery was the best option.) As for my hip problem, she suggested anti-inflammatories and suggested that a cortisone shot was not indicated as it hadn`t helped before. When I asked about acupuncture, she didn`t hesitate to recommend it, cautioning that it wouldn`t cure me, but would probably ease the pain. She is extremely knowledgeable and communicative and made me feel that I was her only concern. I never felt rushed and she asked me again if I had any questions. It was one of the best interactions I`ve ever had with a dr. and I have already recommended her to a friend.
Wonderful visit, very fast and professional service, staff was excellent, x-ray tech was great. Dr. Colvin explained everything in detail and made the visit very comfortable. Great bedside manner.
She was very knowledgeable. She expedited my MRI for the same day!
Knee surgery on my torn meniscus. Dr. Colvin did a fantastic job. I am back to being fully active. Sports, etc. Would go back again no doubt. Look no further..... Thanks Doc!!
She's great! Attentive, great bedside manner, and a good listener. I tore my achilles and she gave me the comfort I needed and did a great job on the operation.
I hated the fact that they called me 1h prior to the appointment saying that Dr Colvin was not going to see me, because sprained ankle is a kind of injury she doesn't treat. I had to insist and even CRY! And yes, Dr Colvin does treat akles and gave me a thorough examination and excellent course of treatment. I wonder how the receptionist / assistants are trained.
Second appointment with her and she's honestly great.
Very nice and listening. She took time to explain what my problem was and what are the different options. Didn't push at all for surgery or any more 'invasive' solutions. Also, the office staff is very friendly and very effective. I would definitely recommend her.
A very pleasant and professional doctor who was kind, receptive, and direct. I would recommend her services.
Dr. Colvin was very thorough and compassionate and referred me to the right doctor for knee surgery. Now I have to make my decision.
Dr. Colvin reviewed my MRI with me and answered all my questions.She called another doctor to consult about part of the issue related to my orthopedic problem
Dr. Colvin listened to me, humored my theories, and gave direct, clear, concise feedback. I would highly recommend.
I picked her because she had a lot of experience with Sports Med and my injury was sports related. I not only saw her but I was able to get an MRI right after my appointment. Really nice and to the point. I'm glad I found her.
I found her examination to my satisfaction, she explained the reasons behind the different movements of my arms to diagnose the problem with my left shoulder.
The experience was like going through a McDonald's drive through. I was impressed with her knowledge, but the appointment felt like she was trying to get me out the door as soon as possible.
Did not really feel like a my issue was dealt with, rather I felt hurried along and wont be coming back to this clinic or doctor. Definitely felt like I was part of an assembly line at this place...
She listens well and is excellent at explaining issues.
She explained everything thoroughly and made sure I understood. She asked if I had any questions and if I understood.
Good, very satisfied
It was my first time seeing Dr. Colvin, i appreciate the time she took to explain the xrays from my knees and what might be the cause of my pain. MRI is required which I have a schedule appt and a second visit to see Dr. Colvin. Her staff is very professional and attentive.
She is fantastic. LISTENED, thorough, warm and sympathetic.
professional, thorough, and great bedside manner.
I was very impressed. She listened to me. Dr. Colvin explained her analysis about my situation and although she could not help me, she referred me to an excellent colleague. She also asked me if I had any questions and she answered them. I was much more impressed with her than a previous doctor at HSS.
Excellent! Dr. Colvin is professional, personable and thorough. I don't feel pressured into excessive screenings or treatments. Her recommendations seem practical.
She made sure questions were answered and didn't assume any knowledge on my part when answering. Definitely recommend.
She understood my concerns and answered them as professionally as she could. She took her time with me since I'd never had surgery in the past. I'm less anxious now that I know I'm taken cared of.
She is AMAZING! caring, professional and knowledgeable!. Takes her time to explain the situation and answer any questions you may have - also a huge honor to be treated by the USTA's CMO!
Seriously didn't have to wait at all. She was great and very helpful.
She was rude, short, unprofessional!
She was GREAT! She always asked if I had questions. Shes very thorough and genuinely cares. She always had an answer for my concerns and that was important for me because I tend to worry a lot. She always put my mind at ease during visits. She had done my arthoscopic knee surgery to remove two bone spurs and it was going to be a tricky surgery if she couldnt reach it arthoscopically but she was very skilled and managed to pull out both bone spurs without having to cut open my knee. It was very nerve racking but she did a great job, everything is back to normal and my painful problem went away. Thank you so much doctor.
I really liked Dr. Colvin! She had great bedside manner and everyone is the office was really friendly and professional. She was very thorough in my evaluation and answered all my questions. I would definitely recommend her.
Doctor Colvin was very kind and approachable. The wait time was very short and she she communicated my problem to me easily and was very patient with me.
Dr. Colvin was very professional and took time to understand my injury. She gives you options for treatment and let's you, the patient, be a part of the decision-making process. I would recommend her to anyone else looking for an Orthopedic Surgeon.
Great bedside manner and listener.
Nice nice nice!
I was very impressed by the efficiency of the X-Ray technician and the staff at the check-in desk.
Dr. Colvin is the best! Very thorough and she answers every single question with patience.
She is very professional and listened to my concerns. I think she is a very good doctor.
Dr. Colvin was knowledgable and personable. I loved that she took her time. I didn't feel rushed even though it was the end of the day. I was very happy with my first visit. The office staff were professional too.
This is the first time I have been to a doctors office that did not require a long wait. Dr. Colvin was professional, pleasant and helpful. I also liked how she was not quick to suggest unnecesaary tests or procedures. I will definitely be going back.
I would highly recommend Dr. Colvin to any family member or friend who is looking for an orthopedic doctor. She was knowledgeable, courteous, and patient. I didn't feel rushed at any point during my visit. It was a very pleasant experience for me.
Very prompt. I showed up 30 minutes early and was seen right away!
She was quick and answered all my questions.
Very clear and direct. She understood my questions and directed her advice towards my functional goals.
She's great. Knowledgeable, thorough, and diligent.
Excellent diagnosis and explanation. Very patient oriented and good listener.
Great doc with excellent amazing bedside manner, also great caring staff, really helped me improve pain and range of motion without surgery.
She was very nice and friendly. She found out very quickly what was my condition. She also explained very thoroughly with me.
If this was a restaurant review I'd say "great service, can't wait to go back", but that would mean another injury so I hope to not see her again any time soon. That said, recommend Dr. Colvin without hesitation.
She is a Good listener and ask a lot of questions
Dr. Colvin was very professional, knowledgable and really put me at ease. Her office staff was friendly and eager to help
She's very polite and friendly. She doesn't rush through and really tries to figure out the problem and tries to get answers quickly. On the same day I took an X-ray and MRI scan about my knee. She wants to get everything done right away so she can diagnose the problem quickly and in a timely manner. I am supposed to see her by this week. No other orthopedic doctor has made me felt more sure of solving my problem as DR. Colvin has. I really feel like there's hope for the problem I have.
She is agile, thorough, and was a great surgeon to have operate on my shoulder.m
She was very informative and attentive.
Very personable, and explains things with as much detail as asked for. Great experience at a doctor's office!
Super friendly and professional.
I found I had to extract information from this Doctor. I came away with many unresolved questions.
Excellent doctor. Took time to listen me out and the gave a thorough explanation of what the problem could be and what precautions to take and how to proceed.
Friendly efficient and reassuring
She is the best!
Dr. Colvin is great! She is very thorough and professional and calmly took the time to explain my condition and my options. I never felt she was trying to sell me anything. I appreciated that she recommended against surgical options. Furthermore, she is always very prompt. I never have to wait more than 5 minutes to see her. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
She's an excellent doctor. Highly recommended
It was quick and to the point. I even had my procedure done the same day which was needling for Calcium Tendonitis. She was excellent!
I found Dr. Colvin to be an excellent and highly professional doctor.
Dr. Colvin seemed very knowledgeable about the kinds of injuries that could cause the issues I was having. She was able to explain exactly what she thought was going on, in a way tailored to what she knew of my own prior experiences and knowledge level. I am confident that we'll be able to work out an effective treatment plan once all further testing has been finished.
Very thorough, not rushed at all (I HATE when doctors are rushed, really big pet peeve). Will probably return for the needed surgery in the upcoming months.
So far so good. This was my first visit and I could tell she knows what she is doing. I have a follow-up meeting with Dr. Colvin, I can keep you posted on that :) But so far, I'm very happy.
Well prepared office, obtained most of my info even via email before I got there, which made the forms easier to fill out and confirm data. Doctor saw me quickly and was personable.
Informative and friendly. Let's you ask question and talk about your issues/possible diagnosis. Would highly recommend her and will continue to go to her in the future.
Entire visit was well done, from initial reception through xray to professional time with Dr Colvin. She was knowledgeable and easy to communicate with.
Excellent visit. Provided me with a prognosis, recommended physical therapy and follow up in the not too distant future.
Very professional and helpful!
I was very pleased with Dr. Colvin and the whole office. I was taken in very quickly, x-rays were done on premises for my hip pain, and Dr. Colvin was personable amd explained her findings (and lack of findings) clearly. I would definitely recommend her and the offices.
Very honest and concise feedback. Also very pleasant to talk to.
very professional exam and analysis
I've seen Dr. Colvin twice for hip problems, and she has been a great help with diagnosis and treatment. She's very knowledgeable and has great bedside manner. I feel like I'm in good hands when I see her, highly recommended.
She was great! Very kind and caring and took the time to explain things and listen to my complaints.
Dr. Colvin was very professional, attentive and patient. She took the time to explain everything thoroughly. I was extremely delighted the Dr. had x-ray machines and a tech on hand available at the office.The visit went very well and I was satisfied with the results of my visit overall. The staff is also very kind and professional.
Personable and Clear. Let's you ask all the questions you need.
Great doctor, long wait time though...
From the congenial greeting of the receptionists and relaxing motif of the office to the exuberance and pleasant nature of Dr. Colvin an otherwise nerve racking trip to an Orthopedic Surgeon turned out to be an informative, insightful and easing experience.
It was quick, professionally directed and painless. Overall great experience.
To be continued...
quick, efficient professional and very sweet! :)
Fantastic bedside manner, very knowledgeable and approachable.
Dr. Colvin was great. Listened to me thoroughly, was caring, and thoughtful with diagnosis. Highly recommended.
Very nice and polite.
Very professional and straight to the concern.
She was very professional and took the time to show me the xrays and where the problematic areas could be.
Very nice doctor and well-trained staff. She took her time explaining my knee issues. The 98th St location is better than the Chinatown office.
She was attentive and listened to my concerns. Clear in explaining my options. Very Professinal
Dr Colvin is great. She is very professional but also quite friendly. I have been having knee problems for quite some time and she diagnosed my issue in understandable terms and made me feel comfortable about the treatment moving forward.
I really liked Dr. Colvin and the entire staff in the office. They were friendly, courteous, and efficient. I was seen almost immediately, they quickly did an x-ray, and then I waited for less than 60 seconds to see the Dr. Colvin.
She listened carefully...
Great appointment. Thorough, confident and excellent bedside manner.
I had a positive experience with Dr. Colvin. She was terrific and understand what I needed.
I really liked her, I ruptured my achilles tendon and had no idea what to do / where to go, over a weekend confined to my bed i literally did 30 hrs of research on orthopedics, ATRs and who to use in NYC (i'm downtown but she also has a clinic in Upper East Side). I then visit two orthopedic surgeons and and she stood head and shoulders as my proffered choice. I haven't been disappointed. I've had several visits with her and she performed the surgery on my achilles tendon (the stitching was excellent compared to some of the hatchet jobs you see online). She make you feel at ease and her experience with my condition was faultless.
So far she seems very nice and knowledgeable. It was only a first visit, but my impression of her is positive.
Through and knowledgable
She was friendly & professional. I felt comfortable with her. She seemed knowledgeable. Office assistants were also friendly, and quick to call and follow up for appointment. I was pleased.
She was great!! All around..
Good, quick, professional
Very informative towards my concerns.
Very professional and excellent facilities.
Dr. Colvin was excellent, professional, and very kind. Her staff was great as well. I would highly recommend her.
Really made time for me and was a great communicator. Would definitely recommend her.
Professional, thorough, and engaged. She took the time to answer all my questions (even the "vain" silly ones).
Super friendly, attentive & patient. Took time to make sure all my questions were answered and that I understood what the deal with my hip pain was.
Very friendly and thorough, but quick... She put me at ease quickly, but I felt that she absolutely heard and understood my concerns. I (almost) wish I had a serious problem so that I would have to see her again!
She seemed competent and was very personable. I felt good about the appointment.
Took her time to explain things and did not rush at all and addressed my concerns very well.
I was 5 minutes late for the appointment, however, Dr Colvin was patient and attentive to my questions. I'll see her in about two months for the follow up visit.
Very good, quick- professional and turn around time was very fast
She was very patient and was an extremely fun doctor as well. I felt very comfortable talking to her and she explained to me in depth about my problem. My issue is not the most pressing or serious thing in the world (meniscus tear) however she did not make any less of it and treated me like a human as opposed to a "patient". I have seen a lot of orthopedic surgeons in the NYC area and she was hands down the best one yet.
Dr Colvin and her staff were amazing!!! Courteous, professional, and just delightful! I will definitely go back & will recommend. I had a WONDERFUL experience!!!!
She's so sweet! Easy to interact with, answered all my questions and even drew diagrams to illustrate the conversation. All the staff there is really nice too.
She is very through and knowledgeable about sports injury treatment. She took time to explain how to recover well and fast. She is very pleasant and highly recommended.
Excellent experience. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Colvin put my mind at ease about a recent knee injury. She was very courteous and thorough, and I felt I could trust her.
