Doctor Colon was attentive, listened carefully to my concerns, clearly explained the issue, and never made me feel rushed.It was an actual two-way conversation that led to an action plan and to me feeling confident that I would get better. I was pleasantly surprised that there are still doctors like this (especially in the New York area). Thank you so much, Dr. Colon! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
