Read Patient Reviews from Dr. Diane Colgan's Patients

"There is a welcoming warmth in practices who put their patients first." 


"Dr. Colgan and her Team are talented, caring and current. Dr. Colgan has guided me artistically, constructively, and conservatively in my decisions regarding cosmetic surgery and procedures. She has never suggested procedures that have not resulted in improvements, and in fact, has discouraged me from unnecessary procedures. There aren't enough superlatives for Dr. Colgan."

Silver Spring, MD

"Dr. Colgan from the first meeting inspires trust. I am a patient who has undergone various procedures over a period of years.... I heartily recommend Dr. Colgan to anyone seeking cosmetic treatment."

Silver Spring, MD

"Dr. Colgan is a true professional. I would not have risked a facelift with anyone else. I highly recommend her."

Kerrville, TX

"The purpose of this note is to provide an enthusiastic endorsement of Dr. Colgan. As a cosmetic patient who has benefited from Dr. Colgan's skill, there simply is no one else I would use or refer. To underscore my regard, I referred her and she performed cosmetic procedures on both my husband and my best friend. And, I originally was referred to her by one of her former patients who himself had been referred. Each time I was being prepared for a procedure (I guess approximately three procedures in 12 years), the surgical nurses repeatedly commented on Dr. Colgan's skill and bedside manner whispering that, "she is the best", and "you are lucky". She is a physician and a surgeon. Combine the best internist you have used with a surgeon's skill and judgment, add compassion (came in on a Saturday to see me the day after surgery), professionalism and a patient service approach. She is modest and self-effacing. Hers is a boutique and not a "big box" retail operation. While there may be others with equal technical skills, none will surpass the combination of tangible skills and intangible qualities Dr. Colgan possesses."

Mc Lean, VA

"I have been a patient of Dr. Diane Colgan for almost four years and have been extremely satisfied with her care, professionalism and treatment results. From my first consultation through the procedure and subsequent follow-up, I was provided with quality information in which to make informed decisions and have been extremely pleased with the results. Dr. Colgan is an outstanding surgeon and a very caring physician. Her staff also displays the highest standard in patient care. I highly recommend Dr. Colgan and her practice to anyone considering cosmetic surgery of procedures to refresh and enhance one's appearance."

Ellicott City, MD

"At the age of 82 I no longer liked the way I looked. I saw Dr. Colgan, had a facelift, and now I like the way I look. Now I accept the aging process with a lighter step and a twinkle in my eye."

Bethesda, MD

"The best physician our state has! Her superb intelligence is equal only to her compassionate care. Her professional aspects can only be described in terms of superlatives. The entire office is the finest example of medicine in its finest hour!"

Potomac, MD

"As a physician, I've had the opportunity to observe the work of many plastic surgeons on patients in my practice. None of the work I've seen -- except that of Dr. Diane Colgan -- gave me any confidence about plastic surgery. My mother had what I call a turkey gobbler neck which I vowed never to have. Having seen the superb cosmetic results of Dr. Colgan's surgery, I've elected to have three procedures performed by her. I am told I appear at least 10 years younger than my age and I'm extremely satisfied with the results of my surgery. No turkey gobbler neck!"

Riva, MD

"For several years I visited Dr. Colgan's office for injectables and magic potions and was deeply impressed with both her skill and the fact that she really was concerned about both results and my comfort. This summer, however, I decided to take the plunge and have a face lift. Unfortunately there was a power outage at the hospital which lasted approximately thirty minutes. To my utter amazement, Dr. Colgan was absolutely unruffled, and, once again, concerned only that I might be nervous. The results were all that I could hope for. People I do not know, usually, guess that I am twenty-five years younger than I am. Great doctor and great results. (If you have questions and would like to speak to me personally, Dr. Colgan has my permission to give you my telephone number.)

Seabrook, MD

"I have used Dr. Colgan for several procedures, including a recent facelift, and have always been very happy with the results. I look completely natural, and no one has even suspected that I had anything 'done'. I love having people that know me tell me that I look like I don't age, and people that do not know me think that I am younger than I actually am. I would highly recommend Dr. Colgan, and would not hesitate to call upon her again."

Silver Spring, MD

"The sophistication and air of success of the reception area inspired confidence! Dr. Colgan is very kind, but also very polished and competent. She put me at ease and made me feel very reassured. She was readily open, available, and willing to talk. Based on references, I'd already decided to go to Dr. Colgan. I was totally satisfied; they couldn't have done more."

Potomac, MD

"Nora, I am really loving my permanent eyeliner. I've shown it off to lots of friends and given them your name. Looking forward to seeing you again and getting my new lips!"

Frederick, MD

"Nora, my brows are looking really nice! It saves me so much time when getting ready in the morning. Thanks again."

Columbia, MD

"Nora, I want you to know I love my eyes! You did a wonderful job. It's so nice to wake up and still look decent. Thank you."

Myersville, MD

"Nora, if you don't got it, find someone with it, push them to the ground, take it, and run...or have Nora put permanent eyeliner on you. Thank you. I love it."

Gaithersburg, MD

"Nora, I just wanted to let you know I am delighted with the new eye brows that you gave me."

Potomac, MD

Words cannot express my excitement and total satisfaction regarding the successful outcome of my recent facelift. The results really exceeded all of my expectations and I am thrilled with the effect -- I look refreshed and feel absolutely wonderful. Dr. Colgan's experience and skill gave me a youthful and natural appearance that did not look artificial or exaggerated.

I appreciate the extensive time Dr. Colgan took during the consultative process -- and also, a word of thanks to the highly professional and customer-focused staff that consistently communicated and coordinated the various pre- and post-op process, giving me additional peace of mind.

Again, my thanks to Dr. Colgan and her exceptional staff who made this transformational experience so comfortable and easy for me.

Herndon, VA

Dear Dr. Colgan,

Thank you so much for taking care of me last week. So much appreciated. You did such a great job and your work is absolutely beautiful.

Thank you again for all you do for me and Suburban. Everyone knows Dr. Colgan is the best!!!

Rockville, MD

Absolutely excellent service! I'm thrilled with the results. Dr. Colgan is an ARTIST. I look like myself, only younger. I can't wait to have her fix my next issue. She's the best.

Olney, MD

I had a terrific experience with Dr. Colgan and her entire office and medical staff. From the initial consultation where Dr. Colgan explained every detail and answered my many questions; to the cosmetic procedure and post-operative care, Dr. Colgan met my highest expectations. My procedure was performed in such a way that it appears very natural. I could not be happier and highly recommend Dr. Colgan and her entire staff. I did not tell my friends that I was having anything done and so I love it when of them says "Boy you look great!"

Chevy Chase, MD

I met Dr. Colgan over eleven years ago when she first did plastic surgery for me. I was completely delighted with the natural results so returned to her recently for some new work. She is kind, professional and supportive as is her staff. I would recommend her and will use her again.

Columbia, MD

Nora was great, very kind and sweet lady. Her tattoo work with my nipple reconstruction really made it come to life again. The nipple tattoo (areola tattoo) looks very real. She did such a great job on them. Highly recommend.

Clarksburg, MD

I went to see Dr. Diane Colgan and Nora Cooke for a pre-examination of my breasts. They were so cordial and very sweet people. I felt completely at ease with both of them. Nora was so intent on her work. I felt like an artist was painting a perfect picture throughout her whole procedure. She is highly skilled and a perfectionist at her work. The thing I want to express the most is that during the time she worked on me, she was so meticulous about her work and whether I was comfortable or feeling any pain. She goes into my book of favorite people. When I went to Community Radiology for an ultrasound, the technician and attending doctor did not realize I had tattoos and were quite impressed.

Bowie, MD

Thank you for taking me again as your patient and using your incredible talents to make changes to me that we had discussed. You have such a air of confidence and a calming demeanor. They cast out any concerns I could have had. Your reassuring smile when we met in the operating room on "the big day" put me completely at ease. You made what could have been a nail biting day more like a walk in the park. Lastly, I want to say thank you for a job very, very well done! You are second to none in your field.

Olney, MD

When Dr. Markus from Adventist Medical Group Breast Care and her nurse were getting ready to examine me, they both were flabbergasted that my nipples and areolas were tattooed. I told Dr. Markus about Nora and what a great job she did and how caring and professional she was. Dr. Markus was very happy with my results and said they looked great. The nurse wrote down all the information I gave her about Nora at Dr. Colgan's office and her work on breast patients. I just felt very good about the enthusiasm they both showed.
