Dr. Drake explained the procedure which was a colonoscopy and gave advice on the prep beforehand which actually the worst of part of this procedure. He was very understanding when I told him my previous colonoscopy I was wide awake and had side effects from Demerol. He gladly suggested another way to do the procedure to reduce my pain and anxiety. Personable and I felt I could ask him anything.

I remember everything about my endoscopy and colonoscopy. I was completely alert and it was terrible. Staff is as stressed as the patients. They do not administer enough medication here. The experience was totally scary. This is not my first experience with these procedures and my first experience with endoscopy was a breeze. With Dr. Drake, I experienced gagging and pain. No plan to continue to find my issues either. Colonoscopy nightmare. Seeking other medical help.

It's not often you can say that your first colonoscopy was a fun day. But I'm going to say it, because Dr. Drake and all the staff at Long Beach Gastroenterology were caring, professional, thorough, and accommodating. Just generally top notch. I would highly recommend Dr. David Drake and his team to anyone lucky enough to need a colonoscopy.
