Patient Comments (2)
Pittsburgh, PA |
He was late and made me wait. I was awake the entire time. I could feel the procedure. I could see and hear everything. I would prefer to be sedated. I would choose another doctor the next time.
in New Kensington, PA |
Dr Dubner is the worse ever. He has no bedside manner and only gives light sedation for colonoscopies; does not even give the pt a choice. I told him that it hurt, he said it's supposed to. I'm mad that I did not jump up off the table and just leave. They make sedation so we do not have to suffer; it seems he finds pleasure in that. They did not even bother to call my husband to tell him I was in/out of recovery. It was the worse experience I ever had in a hospital procedure.
