We saw the doctor and he scheduled a colonoscopy. We were called two days before and told that there was a problem with the insurance but they would appeal it and get back to us. It has been two months and II have not heard back and when I call there is an answering machine but you are not allowed to leave a message. I would have a hard time trusting my child's health to this office.

This man is truly ignorant. He prescribed a medication to my child that hasn't had any significant studies for pediatric use... The internal information specifically cautioned against prescribing said medication to a child of that age. Unacceptable. I imagine with that kind of ignorance he'd be sued for malpractice at some point. And he's exceedingly misogynistic. My wife can ever get a word in and he treats her like garbage.

Won't answer phone. When I did get through, they wanted me to call the lab and get lab results myself, which the lab won't release it to me. He ask questions and doesn't listen to the response. I cancelled our follow up appointment and won't go back!
