Worst physicians I've ever gone to. Does not listen or spend time with patients. Wrote a prescription down on a paper towel and didn't even explain what the medications were and botched a surgery I had. Without a choice, I had emergency surgery and Dr. Colombo was on call. He put my bladder stent in the wrong place, knew about it, and left it there for 2 months. Dr. Colombo was unable to remove the stent and it took 3 surgeries to get it out. Ended up at Mayo with permanent damage.

I am a 25 year old female who has gone to various promptcares with bladder infections and walking out with an antibiotic. Finally a physician told me to see a specialist bc I may have a block. So I went to dr Colombo and instead of him culturing and determining that I had an infection, he put me on six months antibiotics to allow my bladder to heal after determining there was no block. During that six months, my symptoms did not change and instead of re-evaluating me, he would put me on the strongest antibiotic possible. Finally I said this was enough, I want to see someone else. Dr Drinis concluded I have interstitial cystitis. Once my treatment changed, I stopped getting SICK and I learned how to control my symptoms through food and drink. It has been almost a year and I still am VERY PRONE to yeast infections. I take floragen every morning, say out of hot tubs and cut down on carb intake. I have had to be rude to the nurses to relay correct, and important information. Do not go here
