I underwent three endoscopies to remove stomach polyps with Dr. Gaston at Trinity Advocate Hospital. My gag reflect actively revolted for the approximately half hour procedures making the experiences very unpleasant. Despite my distress and voiced concern, the second and third times were equally as bad.
in Dolton, IL |
There is a review that was placed on here in 2010 it is unfortunate that after 6 years that review still holds true. Very Arrogant self absorbed, Feels he is above answering ANY questions. I waited 2 1/2 hours to see him ,there was 1 other patient that came out he didn't apologize for me waiting so long or anything. I was out of his office in 5 minutes. scheduled for op surgery and no explanation! If you have ANY OTHER INSURANCE TAKE THE ADVICE OF REVIEW FROM 2010 AND RUN for a Second Opinion!
