My doctor requested I get a PH test to determine if I had acid reflux. I was never given an appointment before or after the procedure. A person from the office called to give me the results not a doctor. I was not allowed to speak to the doctor when I had trouble swallowing for 2 days after the procedure. I was told the insurance approved the procedure, but was not informed my out of pocket expenses would be over $1,800 due in 30 days. Obviously this clinic is not about the patient's health

Absolutely will never use this doctor. Had a colonoscopy scheduled for Monday. Sunday evening as I was well into the prep for this I get a call asking me to call the office in the morning for a reschedule. Not only that, but the female calling me butchered my name. I have a simple name (think Smith). I've had this scheduled for weeks. I had to take time off of work which at this late hour I cannot undo. Doesn't he have a backup for these situations? I am beyond angered. Never again.

A colonoscopy is not the easiest thing to go through but his office got me in quickly and it was over before I knew. Dr. Arterburn was very nice.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
