Patient Comments (2)

I found this Dr to only be interestested in performing the standard Colonoscopy and endoscopy tests, and when that was complete I was still in pain and He was Dismissive and did not or would not answer questions. Acted like I wasn't there and didn't matter. Please find someone else . It matters.
