    Tremendous understanding of general knowledge surrounding overall issues of my medical situation, and rare ability to apply that understanding to my specific situation--and then to communicate clearly and work together toward a treatment plan. Can recommend without hesitation.

    In addition to accomplishing the main purposes of our visit he diagnosed a problem I was having in my mouth that was causing me great difficulty and prescribed medicine for it.

    Dr. Colman brought back my hope in this situation. He gave me positive encouragement in my situation. He gave me hope for the future and what it could hold for me. After almost 3 weeks in the hospital and feeling that there was very little hope left for me, his approach to my future care and continuing radiation he gave me my hope back.
