    David Kolb MD
    It is the single most terrible and humiliating medical experience of my life, where I was completely misdiagnosed, thereby putting me at risk of dying, by an arrogant and dare I say, incompetent j***. I was wheeled into the doctor's room by my husband because I was too weak to walk. Dr. Kolb asked me "why are you in a wheelchair" and I answered very weakly, " because I am sick". I then told him that I had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and that I thought that had something to do with what was going on.. He replied, "I do not believe in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome". He did his exam of me and in the middle of it asked me, "How often are you in a wheelchair"? I replied, "Never". It felt like he was accusing me of being a hypochondriac, even though I looked so bad that I was almost unrecognizable to people when I have shown them the video that my husband did to document how the recovery of the paralysis was going. It was then I wanted to leave the office, but was too sick to get off the examining table. When my husband wheeled me to get my blood drawn, while waiting I was looking and feeling so badly, that a nurse rushed over to me in concern. I cried when being wheeled to our car because I knew something was very wrong and was sent home by Dr. Kolb like someone who was suffering from a cold. My husband knew something was very wrong too and he was able to get me into a top neurologist at Beth Israel, Dr. Ronthal, who diagnosed me about a month later with Bickerstaff Brainstem encephalitis, a life threatening condition. He demonstrated that the right side of my body was weaker than the left, which combined with the left side of the face being paralyzed and the fact that I had severe ataxia, was sleeping for most of the day, and had a horrible feeling in my brain, gave him the diagnosis. He said that I needed to have a chest x-ray (my first one ever) to see if there was anything systemic causing the encephalitis. The x-ray showed nodules in the upper lobes and swollen lymph nodes in the chest cavity, most likely due to sarcoidosis. Because of this knowledge, I now go to a pulmonary doctor at Mass General, and am being monitored for progression of the disease. After getting the diagnosis from Dr. Ronthal, which took almost five weeks after initially getting sick (he was booked for a month) I was even angrier at Dr. Kolb. I didn't like the way he treated me but I realized that I probably should have been hospitalized (at one point early on, I told my husband I wasn't sure I would wake up and i had to crawl to get to the bathroom). I complained to the complaints dept at Beverly Hospital, and spoke to a woman there named Maureen. That proved fruitless and she even said that she thought Dr. Kolb had called me to talk to me. I told her that I did not want to speak to him, given my very bad experience with him. From my point of view, there were no ramifications for Dr. Kolb for both incompetence and being completely abhorrent.

    I have been going to him for 2-3 years. He is an excellent doctor who takes the time to answer all my questions. He was responsive to the concerns that I had and addressed any issue that I had quite professionally. I am satisfied with him. His staff is excellent. I can get in easily, and they keep to their schedule.
