Patient Comments (1)
in Littleton, CO |
My GP had concerns re anemia; I was able to schedule a colonoscopy within a week. A mass was found in my colon and Dr. Springer followed through with my GP, scheduled a CT scan and recommended a surgeon! Within 11 days I had a colon resection and now 5 months later I am cancer free. I am so grateful for Dr. Springer's compassion, his staff and his wonderful follow through
