Wow, um, brash much. But it's his method for weeding out fakes. His distemper threw me off and I couldn't explain that I don't need gi, I don't want to be in gi, I need neurosurgery to decompress my cerebellum that's causing my gi symptoms..

My Daughter has been seeing this guy for a few months. She has Chronic constipation and has been in/out of the hospital for months. He has done a Colonoscopy and had ordered a sitz mark test for her on 2 occasions but it never was fulfilled. I doubt that it was ordered. This week she ended up admitted to the hospital. I got a call from her that he had recommended her to a Surgeon for a subtotal colonectomy. This is a life changing operation for a 30 year old! The Surgeon refused to do it.

Won't look at you when you speak. Zero follow up and found results of my endoscopy on a sheet of paper. Not adequately sedated for the procedure, and my original problem went untreated. This hospital should invest in a competent empathetic dr with some form of people skills. Nurses could not have been nicer, at the hospital.

Only come here as a last resort. Overbooked and very long wait times. Took 6 months to just get consultation.

Horrible bed side manner. Did not wait for sedation to take effect before starting colonoscopy and then did not stop when told there was in pain. Had to wait 3 months for initial appoitment and then 8 for colonoscopy appointment.

Did not ask any questions. No exam. No explanations of procedure, Wanted me to do colonoscopy too. I said no , he left. On day of surgery, he did not speak to me or relatives waiting. Hurt me during procedure. No apologies. Will not go back. Only one good thing about experience ? It's over. Personality of a stinky old cabbage head that has been in fridge too long. Faster you are shed of it the better everyone is. Stay away from this person and don't let even you enemies go to him.

I would not recommend this doctor. He didn't speak to me after the procedure, nor my spouse. He had the nurse tell me I had a ulcer and a polyp, and here's a prescription for the ulcer-Bye. Oh make a follow up appointment in two weeks. So I call the office for a follow up appointment and receptionist tells me you don't need an appt. I say I was told to make an appt. She says they tell everyone that. Your procedure was normal. A receptionist told me my procedure was NORMAL-RECEPTIONIST.

0 bedside manner. Didn't even say hello back to me at hospital before surgery. Rude about my records, didn't speak to me or my family before or after surgery. Took the minimum amount of time possible during our first meeting when we schedule the surgery. Constantly acting like I was a burden and even being in his office. would not choose to go to him if anyone else was provided in my network with my insurance
