The facilities for colonoscopy at UMass were horrible. Waiting room filled with armed guards because of prisoner treatment. The examination room was so small and crowded, people had to squeeze inside just to close the door. Really!

I was asked to participate in a study conducted by UMASS Memorial after being admitted with a GI bleed. It turns out, I had a rare Dieulafoy lesion in the upper right colon, and was bleeding out. If not for the study, I would not have survived. If not for Dr Cave, I would not have survived. The study identified the location of the lesion, however it was through Dr. Cave's persistence that the bleed was found and cauterized. If not for Dr. Cave, I wouldn't be here today.
