I had a sigmoidoscopy and endoscopy performed by Dr. Leavell at Martha Jefferson Hospital. I expected Dr. Balaban but got Leavall instead. I had to ask who he was. I told him why I was having the procedures and after a few words from him he sat down in the corner and appeared to be using a cell phone and then just sat there until I was asleep. He wore a shirt and tie but no gloves or smock. I never saw him again.

I made an appointment for a specific time. However, at this Dr.s office, when they ask you to arrive 30 early, they mean that is your appt time. I arrive with paperwork filled out prior to the appt at 9 sharp. My time is valuable too! I have a job and cannot take an entire day off for a Dr.s appt. I will NOT reschedule or pay a cancellation for being late for the thirty minutes prior!!
