Patient Comments (3)
Warren, OH |
During a colonoscopy at the Cleveland Clinic, with only a minimal sedative and no anesthesia, my mother experienced extreme pain, asked the Dr. to stop, said it was very painful and he wouldn't stop. He said he wasn't finished. He continued to cut out several polyps. My mother was extremely violated and refused to ever go to the Cleveland Clinic again. We will never recommend Dr. Church to anyone. No one should suffer pain at the hands of any Dr. with all available in modern medicine today.

IT WAS THE MOST PAIN I EVER EXPERIENCED. HE DID NOT TELL ME THAT HE WOULD NOT USE ANY ANESTHESIA UNTIL THE PROCEDURE STARTED. AN IV HAD BEEN STARTED SO I THOUGHT THAT'S WITH IT WAS FOR. IT SHOULD BE AN OBLIGATION THAT THE DOCTOR TELL THE PATIENT BEFORE PROCEDURE HE USES NO SEDATION. I HAVE HAD FAMILY AS FAR AS YOUNGSTOWN THAT HAD THE SAME TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE. I DID NOT KNOW BECAUSE THE DOCTOR THAT DID THE FIRST ONE WAS ABLE TO DO WITH SEDATION AND ABSOLUTELY NO PAIN.

Dr. Church has been an amazing doctor for my husband and both of my children, all who have FAP, a hereditary colon cancer syndrome. We travel from Nebraska to see him and the other fabulous specialists at Cleveland Clinic every year.
