Patient Comments (1)
in Omaha, NE |
This is the third colonoscopy he has preformed on me (I am a 70 year old male). I am also a Catholic Priest. He has the highest standards. Before the test he comes in to ask if you have any questions and to check that the IV was properly inserted. Afterword, within a few minutes of waking he comes back in to see you and tell you what if any he found and removed and how long to wait before calling for results. I highly recommend him.
