    I was bleeding, which scares me badly. MY PCP refers me to Dr. Kummer that Thursday, I was able to schedule an appointment the following Monday. He has the best bedside manner ever. Explains in detail what is to be expected. Answers all my questions and addressed all my concerns. After the procedure, I had severe gas pain, Dr. Kummer along with his staff help talk me through that ordeal. I apologize for scaring him, He said that's what keeps him on his toes. :-). Very Nice Doctor.

    Dr.K performed a colonoscopy and removed a very large polyp.Two days later,my husband fainted at 3AM, and proceeded to have a seizure.He was rushed to the ER.Apparently,Dr. K did not properly seal the area where the polyp was removed.I called Dr.K from the ER, leaving multiple messages with no response.AnotherDr.went in to find the bleeding area and stated he placed a clip in the area to ensure it was sealed.He said he did not see a clip from the 1st procedure.Dr.K never responded to any msgs.
