Beyond frustrated with this my efforts trying to schedule an appointment. His office has scheduled and canceled my appointment THREE TIMES over the past seven months. I've now been trying to get in there since January and they just called me today to cancel once again, each time with an excuse about a scheduling change or mix-up. I've never experienced anything like this with any other doctor's office in my life.

this doctor was the most personable and warm doctor I have seen ever – he never made me feel rushed, he answered every single one of the questions I had and then asked if I had any more, he explained everything thoroughly and never talked down to me, was polite and warm and friendly – cannot recommend highly enough!! I am especially grateful because gastroenterology is not a fun office to have to visit but he made it easier.
