I've always loved this particular office because of the respect that all Doctors & nurses show...I have been coming here for years & would never change offices, let alone my Doctor.

DR. KOLB IS AN EXCELLENT PROVIDER AND I HAVE COMPLETE TRUST IN HIS JUDGEMENT. HE IS ALWAYS SENSITIVE TO MY NEEDS AND GOES THE EXTRA STEP TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL OF MY HELATHCARE NEEDS ARE MET. HE HAS PLAYED AN ACTIVE ROLE IN HELPING TO IMPROVE MY OVERALL MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH OVER THE PAST 27 YEARS AND I AM VERY LUCKY TO BE ONE OF HIS PATIENTS.

Dr kolb is the best to have as a doctor

May 24, 2016

Dr. Kolb has been the PCP and pediatrician for my children for nearly 20 years. He is exemplary in his dedication to patient care and wellness, and he is one of the best physicians we have ever encountered. Surely, UPMC must recognize his valuable contribution to their reputation for excellence.
