I highly recommend Dr Manson if you want a honest straight up Dr. ..if you're looking for a Dr. That will tell you what you want to hear- he's not for you. After my endoscope procedure, I woke (one eye) and could see Dr maxson waiting a cross from my foot of the bed at station attentively watching over me as his patient - before I could open my other eye, he was at my bed side held my hand and smiled said everything looks good. I saw his essence in that moment - he has a beautiful soul .

Dr. Maxson was unable to successfully treat my refractory H. Pylori infection. Repeated endoscopies and repeated antiobiotic treatments. In the end, I ordered antibiotics of my own choosing online and successfully treated the infection. 3+ years now infection free. This is a colonoscopy specialist...

Was very disappointed in my experience with Dr. Maxson. He would barley take the time to talk to me and always made me feel rushed. I feel he basically down-played all of my stomach symptoms and labeled me with a diagnosis just to get me out of there. Would not recommend.
in Jupiter, FL |
Extremely unprofessional and arrogant. Very poor bedside manners. Was very disappointed that I had to submit to care by someone so unfriendly and made me feel very uncomfortable.

Really Disapointed . Bad bed side demeanor , Arrogant , and the Nurse practitioner was rude The nurse was awful . Big time attitude . I miss Dr Flaxman
