Patient Reviews (1)
in Austin, TX |
Very calm, easy going, efficient and professional when explaining the colonoscophy procedure during office visit. Waited 15 minutes to see him and he was in and out in another 10-15 min. Procedure itself was not much different (although 15-20 minutes longer) than a rectal exam for prostate cancer. A little sedative (I did not go to sleep but no pain at all) and you are done. Nice nurse staff also. I would highly rec. because if you do have a colon/rectal cancer he is the expert in this surgery
