Went to see him for a physical today. He listened to a problem Ive had for a year. He recommended a colonoscopy and said will get send info to a gastroenterologist that can perform the procediere. Made me feel at ease when I said I was a little scared. Said I will be asleep and won't know until...more

Very knowledgeable in his field. My only problem is that he is way too fast. It is very hard to ask questions because he is in and out so quick. If you have questions write them down and bring with you.
