Dr. Colman and her staff is great except for the ladies who Register the patients in the front, whenever I get there for my daughter appointment I always have to stand there for a while before they acknowledged me and theweird part about that is that they are never busy with a patient they are always busy among themselves.

My daughter had an issue with her nose; I was able to make an appointment with Dr. Colman over the weekend via ZocDoc, for the following Tuesday. My wife took my daughter, and reported that Dr. Colman was exceptionally good withmy daughter, and was all-around great. And they did not have to wait. My wife had nothing but good things to say about the visit!

Dr. Colman is a very personable, professinoal, and efficient MD who provided me with excellent treatment. I had gone to two different APN's for a seemingly standard impacted ear canal treatment, but whatever the APN's were doing only made mycondition worse and prolonged. Immediately upon meeting Dr. Colman, she listened with interest and intent, did a comprehensive check up and effectively extracted the blockage. I was passed from practitioner to practitioner for 4 days. Imagine never having hearing issues, but enduring hearing loss for that amount of time with no help or assurance. Dr. Colman immediately helped and gave me the reassurance that everything was "OK". Based on this experience alone, I would highly recommend a visit with Dr. Colman - either adult or pediatric.

Very efficient visit -- minimal time spent in the general waiting room, and the doctor saw me within minutes of my being brought to a private waiting room. I'd never been to an ENT before ,and Dr Colman was very communicativethroughout my visit. I was out of there with a diagnosis no more than 30-40 minutes after my scheduled appointment time, having run through a few tests while there, too.

As a new patient, I was happy to find that the front desk staff was very nice and welcoming even though they were busy the afternoon I was there. I waited about an hour, but they were apologetic for the wait,and I think the delay was mostly caused by my insurance company and not them. Dr. Colman was friendly and easy to talk to. She answered my questions well, and I left feeling positively about the appointment. My appointment was pretty brief and I felt a little bit rushed, but I would definitely go back and recommend to anyone needing an ENT doctor!

Very short wait after filling out new patient paperwork. Dr. Colman was great, quickly resolved an ear infection issue that 3 previous dr visits failed to remedy (to be fair the other 3 were not specialists).

I went for my follow up, and like the first appointment this one was great too. The appointment was quick, professional, and I left feeling assured I had the best care possible. Dr. Colman remembered me and my situation right awayand spent time making sure I got everything I needed even though it was a very busy day for the office. I would recommend her to anybody who needs any ENT care.

She was friendly and professional. She did not seem very responsive to my level of pain (10) with my chronic ear ache. She suggested it might be another sinus issue, but did not investigate further beyond a hearing test and earpressure test, which I thought was odd since she is an ENT specialist and could've taken a look at my nose and throat to see if that indeed was the issue causing my terrible ear pain. I left with really no answers to my ear pain that has only gotten much worse since my visit and I have to go back to my PC doctor for the next step because my condition has only gotten worse.

Dr. Coleman is very nice, professional, and provides good care. However, she prescribed me a prescription and did not call it in to the pharmacy, and I had to call after hours to get them to call it in.

I went for a second opinion and for preventative purposes. I left not knowing much more before I came in, but felt that the physician actually took enough time to explain the possibilities and subsequent solutions.
