Patient Comments (1)
in San Diego, CA |
Went for bleeding in stool, scheduled colonoscopy within a week after consult. Found polyps and diverticulosis. You express your concerns and/or questions, he listens and responds accordingly. Excellent and to the point. Great bedside manner. NO hesitation refering Dr. Shpaner to family/friends. In fact, I already did. BTW, had been playing phone tag with previous recommended Dr. since Jan 2. When I finally got through, soonest for consult was 3/8. Who knows how long for follow-up procedure.
