St Paul, MN |
Dr. Gemlo has missed Polyps in the past with excellent prep. Resulted in an extra large sessile in which he wanted to remove part of my colon. Decided to go to the Mayo Clinic for a second opinion, and they removed all polyps (4) without issues during a colonoscopy (NO COLON REMOVAL) I no longer trust and would not recommend Dr. Gemlo for anything anymore
