I really like Dr Maria Colavinzo. She's super personable and informative and doesn't make you feel rushed. She answers all your questions and really listens to what you have to say. She gives information in a clear and easy to understand manner. Even when her analysis of the situation isnt necessarily in agreement or even conflicts with the patient's understanding she is still able to communicate in a way that conveys the information effectively and in a way that doesn't make you feel attacked, ignorant, judged, or just outright dismissed. Which unfortunately can be a problem with a lot of doctors. This as well as her expertise and knowledge is why I value her so much as a doctor and continue to see her.

I thought Dr. Colavincenzo was very knowledgeable rooted in data and science. She was also compassionate and empathetic. She did a great job explaining options potential outcomes etc. My only slight piece of feedback was that I had a list of questions to ask and she spoke most of the time. (Which I thought was very good information so I appreciated that.) But at the end she said ok I will get your paperwork and I said I actually have a few questions. She was of course receptive to them but I felt a little pressured to cut them short because she had already spent so much time with me. It is hard and a balancing act of course in getting information especially about a topic as complex as hair loss. Overall I highly recommend her. It was just a small piece of feedback.

Dr. Colavincenzo has always been exceptionally helpful and informative. In addition to receiving critical medical care, I always seem to leave her office, knowing that the best clinically viable course of action will be taken toward controlling my condition.
