I only have a couple complaints about my colonoscopy with Dr. Menz: it took forever to get the results. I was told to wait one week but it took a month. My husband had the same experience several years ago. His office staff did not return my calls with questions promptly. When I called again I was told something to the effect of: "Well, I'm here now. What is your question? No apology. A colonoscopy can be a scary experience. I would have appreciated quicker results and more empathy from staff
