I had a phenomenal experienced with dr. Colin and his assistant. however in the registration area which also I believed the one one received my call for making an appointment.... I had to call several times just to make an appointment. also I waited for more than 1 hour to call my name. overall the service rendered by Dr. Colin and his assistant suffice it all. thank you

Dr. Colton was very good at explaining everything that was going to happen in the surgery as well as all the possible outcomes of the surgery. He was honest and transparent about prior surgeries where things did not go according to plan. He answered all my questions with his thorough explanation with out me even needing to ask them. He was extremely nice to my husband who attended the pre-op surgery with me and answered his questions as well.

Everything felt efficient and on time. I was given time to fill out my paperwork and use the restroom in between checking in for appointment and being taken back. once I was taken back, I waited less than 5 minutes before I saw Dr. Colton.

When I had concerns about billing and insurance, I received answers via phone call and email within 24 hours. Penny was so kind and patient while answering my questions. She made sure to help me understand everything. She contacted others when she didn't have an answer, which made me have a peace of mind that she wanted to be helping me. Sierra Vista Hospital was NOT accommodating and there was one person in particular that gave us wrong information. I definitely recommend that when working with them, patients are it in touch who have the same positive attitude as everyone else in Dr. Colton's office. My experience with the insurance verifier, Rachel, at Sierra Vista Hospital was extremely negative and almost made me cancel my surgery. I would never recommend someone to speak with her because she gave us incorrect billing and insurance information. If it wasn't for the staff in Dr. Colton's office, I would have canceled my surgery due to my experience at Sierra Vista Hospital with Rachel.

Everyone in Dr.Colton's office are very professional and courteous. It's nice to be greeted with a smile and always willing to assist patients with their needs. ie appts, insurance, or just asking how the patients are doing. That means a lot and has helped with my recovery. knowing that they are here for the patient and not just another number.

Dr. Colton has been an amazing OB to work with during the whole pregnancy. He always listens to my questions, explains things in terms I can understand. He is able to be direct but show empathy when discussing 'tougher' matters.
