NPR was on while my husband was waiting in the triage area. Patients need soothing music, like Yanni or Muzac before procedures. Not the awful news that's going on today. I approached the receptionist and she said she could not change the channel even after toldher it raises my husbands BP.

I went to this man because of recurrent C-Diff.. I had it for over a year at the time. He told me there was no such thing. I was weak enough I could have died. Finally I ended up at UW and the head of gastro cured me. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone, not even a dog.
