Worst doctor experience I've ever had and out $400 to be diagnosed with a "lump" Utter waste of time and NO professionalism or bedside manner whatsoever. I think he spent about 5 minutes with me total and did a piss poor job explaining anything. Definitely do NOT recommend wasting your time or money.

I would recommend Dr. Vernava for rectal surgery only. He saved my husband's life in 2008 and again in 2014. However, at that time he said there should be no more surgeries. My husband developed an incisional hernia after that and in 2015, Dr. Vernava said he could fix it. He never gave us any warnings of what might occur and lied to our daughter when she called and questioned him. My husband went downhill after that, had blockages and more hernias. He never recovered and died this year 2016
