    Dr. Abou-Assi visited with me before the proceedure. This was the first time this happened to me. I had two previous colonoscopies and never saw the doctor before the proceedure. Every staff member, from the admit nurse through the technicial, recovery nurse, dischare nurse, and Anesthesia doctor were friendly, approachable, eager to answer questions.
