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....more
