Charlotte, NC |
Wai t much too long by both assistant a nd doctor. Sat for hours in too hot office. No communic a tion about delays Only nurse gave post operative diagnosis. Office needs organization. Felt like it was the assistant's business and the doctor was the assistant

Don't question the financial pay upon arrival policy or ask for a detailed bill, it may jeopardize you relationship with the doctor. Expect a long wait.

He is so kind and I have developed so much trust in him . I have recommended him to many friends, all of whom lie and trust him as much as I do.

For any rare or unusual digestive disease conditions, I feel is he not up to date. I have GI dysmotility with a GI Pacer to make the stomach and J-Pouch work. With lack of knowledge doctors have a way of putting a glossy eye look in their eyes. But in his defense, all I needed was an colonoscopy. So it wasn't the medical experience I needed. The GI Center for the scope, I had 1 nurse come to me because she heard of the pacer and wanted to learn about it, the dr should have done the same thing
