Dr. Vahabzadeh says

I believe feedback from patients is essential to understand how myself, and my practice, are meeting the needs of patients. We strive to continually improve, and maximize patient experience for patients treated at South Denver Gastroenterology.

The nurse apologized for his rudeness when he did not introduce himself to me before the procedure. I was not given enough anesthesia and I felt sharp pain during my colonoscopy. No one I have EVER spoken to has ever felt any pain during s colonoscopy. I think he is incompetent.
