I guess I pretty much summed up everything in the above statement really.  If I could, I'd sing Dr. Kolder's praises all day and night along with her staff! Her Medical Assistant that came over from her private practice, Kari, is a DOLL.  She too deserves praise all in her own right.  She can tell if it is a good or a bad day for you and is compensating.  She is really easy going and has a beautif...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
This goes back to the very first time I met Dr. Kolder back to when she had her private practice in Iowa City on Court St.  So the date is fuzzy at best.  Anyway, I am timid to say the least with ANY doctor, but was more comfortable knowing I was going to see a female for "women troubles" and come from past full of abuse and mistrust etc.  So the initial sit down goes well, chit chat - getting to know you kind of thing, then the inevitable question - "Are you in or have you ever been in an abusive relationship?"  For years I was able to glaze by the question with flying colors and say a fast "Nope," and move on. Some reason, not this time, I looked up at her and bursted into tears. While I was crying uncontrollably fearing I was looking like a fool. Dr. Kolder handed me a tissue  and spoke gentle calming words to me until I calmed down.  She was able to direct into therapy, which I had long ago given up on.  She worked with me through a long process of femaie difficulties which ultimately resulted in a hysterectemy.  On the big day of surgery she was great! When they were getting me onto the operating table I started having a massive panic attack, shaking out of control, started to cry, I remember saying "No, I don't want to do this let me out."  She was the only one to hear me or to notice I was in trouble.  She said to her team "STOP" and came over to me, stood by my side, made sure I knew who she was and where I was, and once again calmed me down.  Then next thing I remember is her saying "okay, go ahead," and then I was waking up in post-op!  All went well with surgery, of course, because I had the greatest doctor on earth taking care of me for heavens sake!!  Point is is you are lucky enough to get a chance to meet this WONDERFUL DOCTOR and WOMAN and be treated by her you KNOW YOU ARE IN THE BEST HANDS GOD COULD GIVE YOU!  She is truly gifted.  Now she is also teaching, so she is SHARING her gift with others! ISN'T that AMAZING?!!  If we could get more WONDERFUL doctors to TEACH the incoming generation of doctors out there imagine what the health care system could really be like?!
