I have been to three different doctors and have not found any effective help for my issue. However, Dr. Hall was able to help me and set up the necessary scans to follow up. She listened to me and never cut me off. I did not feel rushed.

Colonoscopy at 7 AM means prepping the night before and again at 3 AM! Despite my lack of sleep and not having any solid food for more than 24 hours, Dr. Hudspeth and is staff (Donnelyn, Jill, & Jennifer) put me at ease and made it as pleasant as possible. That's saying a lot!
