I have been a patient of Dr. Colcher for 15 years. She is by far the best doctor I have ever experienced - regardless of specialty. She sees maximum and equal value in every patient no matter what. By not rushing the patient, and using her competence, she optimizes patient outcomes.

Dr. Colcher is the best. Her technician was very pleasant and courteous. I was seen immediately for check-in and at check-out. Both clerks were very helpful. The entire visit went well. I was nervous after being in heavy traffic and of course, with anticipating Botox injections around my eye and in my face. But everyone was so helpful and understanding that I left feeling very good. And I hardly knew when Dr. Colcher injected. Overall great visit.
