    Nice, clean and quite fast: BUT When a polyp is removed a preventive colonoscopy becomes diagnostic one. I believe it is against USDOL policy "FAQs about Affordable Care Act Implementation Part XII" Q5. You might be changed for you deductible and spend a lot of time fighting the charges. Also, when a patient leaves facility it would be nice to had them a piece of paper with info when they can expect detail results. I was left in the dark (or I do not remember due to anesthesia side effects)

    Dr.Brandabur is the Best in His Field, I've seem Gasteroentologist's all over the West,Northwest and Southwest. I've got a Complex and Terminal Disease of the Pancreas. I've seen Him at Virginia Mason and will continue to follow him hopefully for the rest of my life, hopefully meaning the only way I would lose him is if he retired ,which would leave a big hole for a lot of patients that have had the pleasure of knowing him.
