Had severe internal bleeding hemorrhoids fro quite some time. Was sent to Dr. Bush, who surgically removed them, & did an "excellent job." He was highly recommended, Totally got rid of my problem! Great "people personality,' highly skilled, and is in the profession to help others. & it shows. I would go back to him for any major surgery. Young enough to be at his best, but old enough to have gained much knowledge. Tx's Dr. Bush for a job well done! Life is so much better now! And, this is not a pleasant surgery, so don't expect it to be over in a couple of weeks , if you need it. But, the short-term unpleasantness is far out-weightd by the longer term results.

I have a loved relative who went to him to have an gall bladder removed. She had many complications, nearly died and left the hospital 2 months later as an invalid. To be fair she is in her 70s but in truth she was in relatively good health before the operation. The whole issue revolves around whether or not further procedures were actually needed during the operation. These further procedures are what led to the complications. He claims they were necessary? We really have no way of knowing.

My husband has had 3 surgeries by Dr. Bush. Each time, it's the same issue. This last time he had a major infection and we changed surgeons because he said he needed to have another surgery.

My sister had her gallbladder removed by this doctor. She had to go back a second time because she had a huge infection in her abdomen. When he came in to check her infection he sliced her open with a pair of SCISSORS without pain medication. When she cried out in pain he said "stop screaming there are other patients here in the hospital". She asked for a nurse aid to come help her change her dressing every day he said "no you have family they can help you". She went home w/o medication/aftercar

This dr cut on me and just left me to suffer. I called his office for pain meds after a hemroidicetomy surgery and the on call dr would not right anything but t3. I took 6 of them and i vommited. Called back to tell them they were making me puke and they would not write me Left me to suffer after cutting and burning my butt. How can a dr that has pain himself let someone suffer in pain like this.

My mother went here for her hernia to be removed. Once he was done with the surgery, he acted as if it was a inconvenience to hear from her again. He would get annoyed when she called to ask questions, when she would call and tell them there was complications, and when she had to go back for another procedure because of complications and was crying because of the pain, he scoffed and told her to "stop that, why are you crying?" in a very rude, undermining tone, which I witnessed. Do not go here!

He took my husband gallbladder out. He was very helpful and nice. I called his office with a concern the day after, he was in surgery. But call me back his self to answer my question. My husband had to go back to hospital a week after for hi gastrparsis. And Dr Bush checked in on him 3 different times. And seem truly concern with his well being.

Dr. Bush performed a hemorrhoidectomy for me and the procedure itself was awful but he cared about keeping me out of pain the whole way through. Through my recovery he answered any phone call or squeezed me in at almost anytime even if I was just worried about something I saw or something that was happening. I am only 21 and this procedure was very scary for me. I felt like he stood next to me before, during and after for much longer than I could have asked for.
