I had an endoscope with this Dr... When given the annistetic injection, it did not work. Rather than giving me another dose, or different medication he stated, "hummm your body must be used to taking drugs..." at that point the object used to keep my mouth open had already been inserted so my ability to respond was taken away.... He than had the nurses hold me down as he performed the procedure while I was wide awake. I then walked out by myself, unassisted after the procedure.
