This was my first visit. The person at the front desk was friendly and helpful. Dr. Kolstad was very nice and explained everything in detail. I was somewhat nervous but he made me feel very comfortable; it did not feel rushed.He was also able to provide before and after photos of his work which was helpful.

It was a pleasant experience from the very beginning starting with the computer and getting all my health issues and meds over to him before my appointment and for him to be able to read and know me before I arrivedfor my appointment. I was impressed and would recommend to anyone and I will see him again. I am also impressed with this site as it makes it easy to find a doctor and to know that my doctors are on this website also. Check it out.
