I had bunion surgery on my left foot about a 12 years ago, and it was awful. The pain was excruciating and it took forever to heal. I desperately needed the other foot done, but was afraid to based on my last experience. When it came to the point where I could not walk without terrible pain, I consulted with Dr. Collabella. He was down to earth, explained everything thoroughly, and reassured me that things would go more smoothly this time around. He really came through on that promise! He did a great job, and prepared me well to manage the post op pain. The ice compression he ordered to help with the inflammation and pain was a real help. I only needed opioids for three days and was back in the office within 5 days (though with a boot). During the follow up, Dr. Collabella was available to talk to anytime, and very flexible with appointments. I am very happy with how rapidly I have healed and very relieved to have had it done!

Texted me to move my appointment at 11pm the night before. Did not update me on when he would be able to see me. He was not in the office that I scheduled my appointment in. This was difficult because I had to take time off work to go to this appointment.

Dr Colabella was wonderful during the whole process of my bunion surgery. He is kind and cares about his patients. My big toe is now perfectly straight! I will definitely be going back to him for the bunion on my other foot.

Office is very disorganized- Had to keep asking my name, who I was, what I was there for, even though I was the only person there. Guy who told me he "didn't usually work there" did my intake, including personal questions, and seemed confused as to where to put my info/etc. Dr. Colabella was okay, albeit a bit rushed, and impersonal, but I felt he knew what he was doing.

Dr. Colabella seemed knowledgeble and he was friendly, but I felt he was a bit pushy with products and getting orthotics created for my feet. I went ahead with it but I haven't noticed that big of a difference in how my feet feel in sneakers / general arch support.

Dr. Colabella was very friendly and direct, quickly diagnosing the problem with my foot and recommending a course of treatment. He even referred me to another doctor that would take my insurance so that I could get the right procedure done at minimal cost. I showed up to the office a bit late, so I'm not sure what the normal waiting time would be (likely on the short side).

Couldn't tell if doctor was trying to help, or trying to sell services, but he pushed a treatment on a condition which I hadn't come in for. It wasn't a bad idea, and I may do it upon my return, but I felt I was getting the hard sell. Also, the technician who actually performed my procedure alone in the exam room had to be briefed on the equipment and caused a lot of pain.

Had an appointment with Dr. Colabella today and it was very pleasing. The appointment was for something minor, but he fixed the issue and bought up the reason why the problem occurred. He explained the issue it thoroughly and what we have to do in the future to fix the problem. Excited for the future appointments with him. I would recommend his services to anybody who is looking for a foot doctor and will recommend him to all my friends and family.

It is refreshing to find an old fashioned bedside manor in a young but energetic doctor with such expertise. After a Terrible former experience, I was hesitant to have any touch my feet again but Dr. Colabella is the Michaelangelo of foot surgery. Not only was everyone courteous and friendly, they took care of everything for me and the surgery was so much better than expected. And when was the last time your surgeon personally called your befor and after surgery to check on you? Surgery is not a picnic but if you need it this is the Dr. To get the job done right and take care of you from the first time he meets you. Thanks Doc!

I had a foot/heel injury and went wanted to see someone highly rated as soon as possible as I wasn't able to walk well. I made an appointment with Dr. Colabella as he was the best option for Monday. His secretary called me moments after to tell me he could not meet actually meet until the following day. When I got to the office he was not in yet. I waited patiently for him to arrive and settle in. After looking at my xray he suggested some therapy which we did. He then wrapped my foot in a sort of cast and told me to get an MRI asap. This is where things started going bad. I could not get an MRI appt until Friday so hobbled around in this cast item for 4 days. Dr. Colabella told me to call if I needed to change the dressing and that he would be in touch right after my MRI with the results. I called Dr. Colabella every day after my appointment several times a day because my dressing got wet and needed to be changed. I NEVER heard from him. I left several messages with the secretary and nothing. I removed the dressing and did the only thing I knew to do, wrapped an ace bandage around my foot. I got my MRI and NEVER got a phone call with my results. I finally got ahold of another Dr. in his office who read me the results ONE WEEK after my MRI, most people hear results in 24 hours. I had a partial fracture in my heel and tendon tear. I still have NOT heard from Dr. Colabella.

It was very odd. He wanted to do surgery right away, and that seemed imprudent.
