in Spring, TX |
Colonoscopy went well, no bleeding or perforation, everything was downhill after prep, Staff were friendly and efficient. Everything explained in detail ,recommended to family and friends.
I had specific symptoms that were not discussed or addressed with me after no cancer found. I could not ask the question after results as he had left before I awoke. He did discuss with my husband the results. I tried to call that day and never received a call back. I tried one more time no callback. I had hep c test done and had to call for results.. I already had an order from my doctor for procedure and she was not informed of results.. . I had to send them to her..
