Dr. Kolb is an excellent doctor. I have gone to him for almost 20 years and I would not ever change.

Dr. Kolb is a kind, caring and professional medical doctor. A model for best practices. I am blessed to have him in my life.

I have been coming here for 40+ years except for 6 years when I lived in Texas. Dr. Kolb is an excellent doctor who listens, considers mind/body/soul and seeks the underlying cause of any issues. My visit yesterday resulted in his ordering a number of tests (which have not yet been done) to learn the cause of my issues, not just come up with a quick response. I recommend him every chance I get.
