In mid-March I had tests Nurse called the next day stating I had colitis, start Endocort, & return end of 3/17. Received no info about colitis from anyone. Thank goodness for the internet! At the appt he was very rushed, was there for 5 min, basically laughed when asked if dietary changes should be made. The only info he shared was this didn't cause cancer, increase med to 6mg, in 4 wks increase to 9mg. If symptoms returned, restart at 3mg. No followup appt.

Didn't check for basic tests(X-ray, bacteria, etc.) Staff never returned calls. Took two weeks to get results back which I learned weren't even testing for the symptoms I had. Talked to two separate primary care physicians that said he was inept. Didn't meet for longer than two minutes. Staff never explained tests and lab technicians very rude. Do not go to this doctor.
