Dr. Noah Kolb and Dr. Ligia Onofrei are true professinals. They took my health care needs serious and have worked to provide me with answers. They both have taken me serious when I am not sure how to explain symptoms and issues I am having and dealing with, they listened and they cared! Dealing with the health issue I have it means the world to me to know that these doctors care. Knowing I have a health care team like this, it encourages me to do everything I can to stay as healthy as I can. I trust their opinions and value medical advice.

January 05, 2015

Dr. Kolb is compassionate and thorough. He took the extra time to really listen to my concerns, address past misunderstandings about my treatment plan and involve me in my treatment plan moving forward. He started a dialogue with my insurance and preserved until they agreed to cover testing. He is a great doctor and advocate.

November 23, 2014

After my apt i was getting dressed and my right leg lost feeling and my left leg went num on me, making it very painful and hard to walk. Dr Kolb came right to my attention when I couldn't walk. My legs were extremely weak and when I asked him if it was normal for that to happen he said no and ran over asap grabbed a chair sat me down and ran to get help before going into his next appointment.

November 10, 2014

Both the intern and Dr. Kolb were exceptional.

October 02, 2014

Dr. Kolb took the time to examine and explain his findings and especially his reasons.

September 22, 2014

Dr. Kolb and the resident were great.

September 03, 2014

So far getting information about follow up testing and appointments has not been timely.

August 24, 2014

Both physicians who treated me were exceptional.

July 24, 2014

Care provider has been excellent in all catagories

May 19, 2014

good

May 13, 2014

It was a great first visit in all respects. , .

May 07, 2014

Dr. Kolb was just terrific: relaxed, attentive, caring, thorough in history and physical, extremely good at eliciting concerns and answering questions, involved the patient and family in decision making about further evaluation and management. It's hard to imagine how his care could have been any better!

April 25, 2014

I've seen several doctors and specialists over the past several years. Both my husband and myself have commented on how thorough my exams have been and the time spent. I've seen doctors that spend less 5 minutes, have me fill out questionaires that have nothing to do with my condition or symptoms and then write me out another perscription. We are so appreciative of the caring way I've been treated and the information that has been shared with us. Thank you so much.

April 18, 2014

We were shocked by the diagnosis and would have preferred the doctor spend a little more time discussing possible medications/treatments, and followup care. I am hoping he will do so during our followup visit.

March 20, 2014

Dr. Kolb is very thoughtful and considerate. He seems to be a very competent doctor AND he has always been on time for appointments!! I would recommend him to anyone who needs a neurologist.

February 02, 2014

Dr. Kolb is probably the most through and companionate medical professional I have ever been to.

January 06, 2014

Dr. Kolb was very professional and attentive. He answered all our questions and explained the next step in my treatment/evaluation.

December 10, 2013

We had been to see other Doctors with our concerns and Dr. Kolb was by far the best. He was a third opinion and we felt most comfortable with him.

December 04, 2013

good explanations very empathetic

November 18, 2013

Dr. Kolb was very informative, very friendly, I did not feel uncomfortable with any of the procedures I had done by him. He explained some of the questions I wasn't quite sure of from my original orthopedic specialist. Very happy with the service I was provided.

October 24, 2013

Super guy!!!!!!!

October 15, 2013

Dr. Colb and Dr. Soltanzadeh did a very good job.

September 21, 2013

He made me feel really comfortable and confident in him as well as the procedure and outcome. I rarely find a doctor that I can openly communicate my problems to but he made it very easy.

September 19, 2013

One of the best I have experienced!

August 26, 2013

The Dr. was very pleasant and informative, he explained what he would be doing and what to expect. He also expressed his opinion as to what he thought was going on instead of leaving me out and talking it over with other Dr.s, which I appreciated. Thank You!

August 21, 2013

Other than prescribing meds for pain (I find that I don't tolerate them well, and won't be using them), Dr. Kolb was satisfied to diagnose my neuropathy as pre-diabetic, but had nothing to offer in terms of avoiding further damage to my feet. Finding out what caused my problem was only part of my reason for coming in, but it was Dr. Kolb's entire focus in examining me.

August 14, 2013

My doctor could not be any better even if he tried.

August 12, 2013

The care was very good, but I am still waiting for the results to get to my Primary Care Physician for follow up.

June 14, 2013

Dr Kolb was apologetic for my wait.

May 29, 2013

I had the doctor's undivided attention and concern for me.

May 27, 2013

This visit was very productive, and the follow up appointments with PT and the vendor and with Rheumatology are in progress.
