"It was my first doctor visit ever for arthritis I've been told I've had since I was a pre-teen. I had been referred to Dr. Colbert by my GP and a close friend who has been her patient for years. Dr. Colbert was very thorough in her questioning, and took her time to check my joints for immediately visible signs, then wrote me up for blood work and x-rays. She was efficient yet very engaging. I felt that she was on top of her game, and made me feel comforted knowing she was going to get to the bottom of whatever it is I having going on that is causing the stiffness and pain."
