    Told my driver, young son, he had removed polyps. No intention of taking time to talk to me himself or have anyone else talk to me. I had to insist on talking to him when I came out of anesthesia after colonoscopy. Had insane amount of burping and some gas pain starting immediately afterwards. Not sure that was his fault. All I know is I was normal before and now I'm not.

    Has that knack that makes you comfortable and at ease right away. Very personable. Did my colonoscopy - no issues - came in after and talked to me. Had staff call and check on me about another issue and saw me again relatively quickly. This doctor CARES about people - which I find is rare today!!!
