What People Say About Dr. Gregory Olds, MD

I was told about Dr. Olds from a friend mine who he had save from having a major surgery by removing his polyp with a scope instead of with big operation. My own gastro doc had sent me to surgeon who going to remove a large part of my colon. I saw Dr. Olds in the office and he kindly described the procedure including all of the risks. He answered all mine and my wife's and daughter's questions. He then removed the polyp by a scope with a same day outpatient procedure. Not only that but he found 6 other polyps that my doctor had missed. He is the doctor all the other GI doctors in Chattanooga send the cases they can't do to.

In Oct. 2017 he remove a polyp and after I got home clamps broke, lost 7 pints of blood before I got to emergency room. I spent 5 days in ICU, had another colonoscopy to stop bleeding & received 6 pints of blood.During March of 2018 he gave me another colonoscopy & upper scope. When got home stool was black & I had to go back to hospital to get bleeding stopped in my stomach spent 3 days in hospital. Don

Dr. Olds made the effort to personally call and urge me to realize that I needed to have a Whipple operation now to gain the most benefits. I have great respect for him as a doctor and more importantly as a caring human being. I totally trust his judgement. He is the reason I am alive today. Thanks doctor for caring.

This is a very cold office. They made a referral to a pain management clinic that had a 2.5 hour wait. I asked to be referred to a different clinic and said no. They said it was too hard for them to change the referral. Give me a break. They do not care about their patients. I would suspect a kickback of some sort with the pmc. Why else would they force you to go to one place with so many options. Beware
