Doctor Kolb has always treated me wonderfully.

August 13, 2019

This physician is and always has been excellent. I've recommended several friends to his practice

July 31, 2019

I would like to just say thank you to Dr Kolb for his outstanding job he does every time I need to see him. I love the fact that he shows so much care and concern when it comes to my well being. You are rare gem in the world of physicians and would truly be hurt and depressed if he ever decided to relocate.#1 Doctor Kolb

July 24, 2019

Dr Kolb is very thorough in going over health records and discussing things with you. He communicates in a way that is easy to understand especially in test results. You can just tell he is a kind and caring Dr.

I feel blessed that Randy is our Doctor for me, my wife and my son. We are very lucky, he is truly interested, asks questions that recognize our weaknesses, and tries to help us address our shortcomings with help

April 24, 2019

Dr. Kolb is one of the best providers I have ever had. Easy to talk to. Always knows pertinent info about my health

April 24, 2019

Always welcoming. I feel like they know me.

April 02, 2019

Dr Kolb is always pleasant and understanding

February 20, 2019

Dr. Kolb is a very efficient provider. He listens and is never critical. I really feel that he has my best interests at heart. After 27 years, I really do not look forward to interrupting my care with him due to the ridiculous upmc/highmark battle.
